For Nashville singer/songwriter Matt Brown, happiness is an open road and a full tank of gas, or the jolt of adrenaline and spark of anticipation gained from parking oneself in an airplane seat to embark on an adventure. His song “Feel Like That,” from his last album, 2016’s Walk Into The Light, is about just that.
“It’s about escaping all the toxicity and mundaneness in one’s life by experiencing new places with new people,” he explains. “There’s always a little bit of mystery about who you might meet or fall in love with while traveling, and I guess that was part of the inspiration for this song as well.” Brown collaborated with his friend and co-writer, Ryan Root, his manager, John Tumminello, and videographer Christian Goudy of Mountain Wind Films to create the concept for the song’s video—what Brown describes as a “love letter” to Nashville. “Nashville is a booming city and attracts people from all over the world,” he says. “It allows you to escape reality for a bit with all the electric life of downtown, the music, the history, and all the cool sites it has to offer.”
The video, which perfectly complements the heart and soul of the upbeat, poptastic tune, features the cooler-than-cool Brown as he struts his stuff around town; our hero plays his signature baby blue Fender Telecaster, Stella, as he passes by local landmarks, glides down Broadway on a bicycle, and even ends up on one of the ever-present pedal taverns synonymous with Nashville’s reputation as the country’s top bachelorette party destination.
Without further ado, East of 8th proudly presents “Feel Like That,” the new video from Matt Brown:
