Spencer Crandall may not be selling out football stadiums just yet, but he’s certainly doing something right.
The artist had a lot to celebrate this Fourth of July weekend with his music video, “What Do We Do Now?” premiering on a huge billboard in the middle of Times Square in New York City.
On Friday (July 1), Crandall posted a video of the moment captioning it, “YOUR BOY IS IN TIMES SQUARE!!… What a dream come true!!”

He followed up that video with a series of photos of everyone who helped make this dream happen. He thanked his videographer who helped create the music video, his photographer, Scott Porter and Joe Tounge for helping write the breakup track, his manager Jeff Cherry and CMT for the “amazing opportunity,” and of course, his mom and dad.
“Shoutout to my parents for showing up for everything. Y’all never missed a t-ball game, so I already know you’d be in NYC for this!”
He couldn’t forget about the people who really made it all happen either, his fans.
Crandall wrote, “SHOUTOUT TO THE @stadiumgang CAUSE THIS IS ALL CAUSE OF YOUUUUU! THANK YOU! Only the beginning! ;)”

It certainly is “only the beginning” for the up and coming country artist.
He told Celeb Secrets reporter Blakely McHugh backstage at the 2022 CMA Music Festival last month that his goal is to perform at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO.
Growing up in the centennial state, Crandall attended Kenny Chesney concerts at the stadium where the Denver Broncos play. He remembers thinking that was the “coolest thing a human being could do.”
So he set his sights on that.
“Obviously [there are] little goals here and there with streams and songs and all that, but really everything’s pointed at the stadium.”
And when that moment happens, he’s got a special way to celebrate.
At every Spencer Crandall concert, there’s a merchandise table with confetti that fans can sign. His team collects that confetti and when he finally makes the stadium dream come true, he’s going to launch the signed confetti during the last song of the set.
“So that’s the goal and we kind of continue to tell that story and try to rally our troops to get on board with that.”
To get to that goal, Crandall is working on a new project that he says hasn’t really been done in country music before.
Featuring his most vulnerable self, he says it’s a project that he’s never been more excited for.
“We’re putting out the music in a completely different way. It’s telling a really greater story than just eight to 10 random songs,” he revealed. “I’s a huge piece of my heart. It’s definitely the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as an artist.”
He’ll be putting out the music in “waves or chapters” with the complete project being released in October.
In the meantime, Spencer is doing is out on the road, performing shows through the end of the summer.
