Big Machine Recording artist, Danielle Bradbery has debuted the official music video for her latest single “Goodbye Summer” featuring country superstar Thomas Rhett. “Goodbye Summer” is a reimagining of “Hello Summer,” a solo track featured on Bradbery’s sophomore record, I Don’t Believe We’ve Met. Penned by Rhett, Rhett Akins, Jaren Johnston, and Julian Bunetta, the song delves into the highs and lows of a summer love. Rhett’s added vocal presence on the updated duet version shifts the one-sided story to a perspective from both sides of the bittersweet tales of a summer fling. This rendition focuses more on the “goodbye” part of the song, adding emphasis to the “hello to my broken heart” lyric.
Directed by Shaun Silva, the video features Bradberry and Rhett belting it out on the sandy beaches and boardwalks of 30A in Rosemary Beach, Florida. The video also unfolds a summer romance story between a girl and boy, the girl working at a beach resort and the boy being a guest at the resort. The two seem to fall quickly in love, spending every free moment together, until September rolls around, just as the song lyrics forewarn. Before eventually parting ways, the couple embraces in one final goodbye kiss. Watch the video below.
Bradberry took to her Instagram stories this morning to relay the message that shortly after this music video was filmed, the beaches of 30A were hit by Hurricane Michael, devastating the surrounding communities. She has teamed up with the Rosemary Beach Foundation to help raise funds for the rebuilding and aiding of the surrounding areas. You can learn more and donate to those in need here.
