Dating is tough and in today’s modern world, it can be even tougher. Some loves stick around, while others come and go before the memories and feelings earn an official label. Often times a heart doesn’t break even, leaving many left with nothing but the feelings and memories of a love they never technically had.

For country songstress Dani Taylor, this scenario is one she knows very well, as she poured her experiences into her latest track “Strangers Again.”

“This song was inspired by a situation-ship I was in earlier this year. I was taken by surprise and before I knew it, he said he didn’t want anything serious. Then I was left with memories of someone I basically wasn’t with in the first place. Nashville is a small town, and everywhere I went, or things I would drive by, would remind me of him,” shared Taylor in an exclusive interview with Celeb Secrets Country.

The artist also shared that the initial inspiration for the song came to development when she was inspired by a TikTok!

“This song was written because I saw a TikTok of a girl just staring and the caption said ‘all that just to be strangers again,’ and it really hit me,” said Taylor. “I related so much to that simple sentence that I wrote it into a song!”

Taking an unfortunate dating reality and penning it into a total hit, Taylor’s song easily resonates with so many fans. And while Taylor is singing about being a stranger again to an ex-budding-love, she is no stranger to releasing incredible music.

“Strangers Again” follows up after her single “Table for One Drinking for Two.” This sassy and empowering song has made absolute waves with over 1.5 million streams on Spotify alone.

While Taylor has still kept her incredible vocals, catchy lyrics and undeniable talent, the artist says that this new song sports a more mature style than “Table for One Drinking for Two.”

“My sound is a bit more mature, I think. I’ve grown a lot since I’ve written “Table for One,” said Taylor. ““Strangers Again” shows an emotional side to me that I’ve never shown before. I used to think I always had to be positive, but this song showcases a vulnerability I’ve never shown before.”

Dani Taylor: “Thank you, yes! This song was inspired by a situation-ship I was in earlier this year. I was taken by surprise and before I knew it, he said he didn’t want anything serious. Then I was left with memories of someone I basically wasn’t with in the first place. Nashville is a small town, and everywhere I went, or things I would drive by, would remind me of him.”

DT: “I’m amazed and so grateful for how well “Table for One Drinking for Two” has done! It’s an honor that country fans can relate so much to my song.”

CSC: Comparing the two, would you say any aspects of your sound or creative vision has changed with this new upcoming release? 

DT: “My sound is a bit more mature, I think. I’ve grown a lot since I’ve written “Table for One.” “Strangers Again” shows an emotional side to me that I’ve never shown before. I used to think I always had to be positive, but this song showcases a vulnerability I’ve never shown before.”

CSC: Now we did get an incredible music video for “Table For One Drinking For Two,” can we expect a music video for “Strangers Again?” 

DT: “There will be a visualizer for “Strangers Again,” but not a full music video, unfortunately. It won’t be as wild as the “Table for One” production, but it will still look great nonetheless!”

CSC: What can fans anticipate for this video? 

DT: “The visualizer for “Strangers Again” will show a person’s memories of someone, and then that person alone in the same spot that memory took place. It will give fans a bit of a “before and after” type vibe.”

CSC: Beyond this upcoming track, can we anticipate more new music this year? 

DT: “I’m currently writing for whatever is next! I’m hoping to get a new track out sometime in October.. stay tuned!”

CSC: And since we are Celeb Secrets, is there any behind-the-scenes secret from writing “Strangers Again” that we wouldn’t know just from listening?

DT: “The 8th Street reference is the Melrose bar where I’d met the person “Strangers Again” is about. It’s a hidden detail for anyone who lives in Nashville to pick up on and understand.”
