Hannah Bethel Releases Song and Video for "Train"
Rising country artist, Hannah Bethel, has just released the song and video so many of us can relate to.
"Train" is those times when we begin to question ourselves as to why these things keep happening to us and when will we ever catch a break. But, then there is this moment where we stop and realize we have the power to not allow these negative things impact our lives and we have complete control.
“Writing this song marked a huge turning point in my life, and I struggle to put into words just how profoundly it has impacted me. I wrote ‘Train’ with my sister during a time when I was not brave enough to say out loud what I truly wanted,” states Bethel. “I was exhausted from years of touring and making records independently and barely getting by. My personal life felt like it was unraveling and my confidence in my artistry was fragile at best. I had been trying for so long to make myself fit and feel whole in my career and in a relationship. I valued the opinions and feelings of others higher than my own and I realized that I was starving for the approval and attention of people that were not meant for me. Writing this song shifted my perspective from, ‘Why can’t I catch a break? Why are these things happening to me,’ to ‘Why do I continue to allow these things to happen?’ This song gave me the strength and honesty to fight for the life of my wildest dreams, and to walk away from things that no longer served my joy and my peace.”
The music video for "Train" was filmed in west Texas and provides the perfect, scenic backdrop for Bethel in this video. Check out the full video below and watch for Hannah Bethel and the "Train" video this December as will be featured on "CMT Artist Discovery".
