Chris Janson is trading in his harmonica licks for a sensitive sitting-at-the-piano song with the music video for “Drunk Girl.”
Written by Janson, Tom Douglas, and Scooter Carusoe, Janson puts a new story to the poignant song with the release of its official music video, which was directed by Jeff Venable. The song was written from a concerned father’s perspective, and the music video paints a realistic portrait of a young girl as she experiences relationships throughout her life.
We don’t ever want to offend anybody,” says Janson. “but man, it’s almost a disservice if you don’t bring light to some subjects that are so important and don’t get talked about nearly as much as they should.”
In addition to its powerful message, the piece offers a rare look at an illuminated but empty lower Broadway. Janson and the crew shut down Nashville’s famed downtown street to capture the visual.
Make sure to catch Chris discussing the making of the video and more today at 5:30 p.m. CT on a special YouTube Live from the stage at the Grand Ole Opry!
