Runaway June is debuting the brand new video for their current single, “Forgot About That,” and Country Now readers get to see it first in this exclusive premiere.
Filmed inside venues including Jackson, Wyoming’s iconic Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, this clip finds the talented trio of Naomi Cooke, Jennifer Wayne, and Natalie Stovall, treating massive crowds to some live music.
“We wanted this visualizer to be filled with footage of our live shows! Combined from a festival in Cadott, WI and a show in Jackson, WY, we felt like these clips captured all the energy that ‘Forgot About That’ carries,” Runaway June’s Wayne tells Country Now of the accompanying video.
Showing off their undeniable energy and flawless stage presence, Cooke commands the room with her powerful lead vocals, as Wayne and Stovall offer up their signature rich harmonies and mastery instrumentation. Viewers also get to catch Runaway June behind-the-scenes, preparing for their electrifying live show before they sing the song about getting caught up in a moment after reuniting with an ex-flame.
“I forgot about that look that you give me/I forgot about that way that it gets me / Not remembering why / We ever said goodbye in the first place / I forgot about that buzz when you kiss me / And the way that it lasts longer than whiskey / And I think I might’ve swore / That I was never gonna take you back / But I forgot about that,” the BBR Music Group / Wheelhouse Records trio – all of which are happily married to respective husbands – sing throughout the chorus of the infectious, fiddle-infused tune.
“The energy and crowd reaction from this song has been so cool to watch on the road,” Stovall shares. “One of the first times we played it was in Jackson, WY earlier this year, and you can see some of the footage in this visualizer.”
“Forgot About That,” which Cooke and Wayne penned with Corey Crowder and Emily Shackelton, is included on Runaway June’s three-song 2021 EP backstory, their first new body of work since 2019. The Dann Huff and Mark Trussell-produced project showcases the band’s cool Western-rooted bluegrass sound and focuses on the various trial and errors of life and love, which comes along before finding that happily ever after. Tracks on the project also include “Down The Middle” and “T-Shirt.”
“‘Forgot About That’ is a playful song about breaking up and getting back with someone. Once you see them again, you forget all the reasons you broke up because there is still a place in your heart that loves them,” Cooke says of the song, which is the opening track on backstory.
Runaway June, who has performed for artists like Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, and Carrie Underwood, is currently on the road as part of Luke Bryan’s 2021 Proud To Be Right Here Tour. The trio began supporting the trek in St. Louis, Missouri on Thursday, (August 19), during the same weekend of their EP release.
