Teddy Robb is one of country’s newcomers and one of our 2019 Artists To Watch. We welcomed him this past weekend at our Country Bunch and are admiring his music video for his release “Really Shouldn’t Drink Around You”. A native of Akron, Ohio, Robb played football throughout college at Kent State before his world opened up after hearing George Strait’s “Troubadour.” He then packed his bags and headed to music city where he signed a publishing deal with SMACK and later signed with Monument Records. Read more about his journey to Nashville in our Swag Spotlight here.
Written by hitmakers, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Old Dominion’s Trevor Rosen, the visual trails Robb meandering the countryside at the start before walking into an empty bar to meet up with a girl continuing their love story back in the scenic views. This rustic, homey assemblage of memories makes one want to embark on a similar expedition. The recording artist loves the outdoors, so it is no surprise that this video features some of the most beautiful shots of Colorado, the mountain ranges, and wide-open plains. The contrast from a dark dingey bar to the brilliant nature that surrounds the couple, adds to the already infectious song.
The song is a brutally honest depiction of alcohol cajoled love, in a fun way, but maybe not the wisest. Robb bids an admonition: “There ain’t really no such thing as a gin and platonic.” In time, things seem like a great idea until looking back from the future. Clever cliches and catchy play on words embellish the singer’s single paying homage to a vibe similar to Old Dominions’.
The Hero Collection by NYCountry Swag is inspired by the men and women of the Fire, Police and Military Departments across the country. A portion of sales from each purchase is donated to different foundations that support our heroes. We are dedicated to honoring their service and remembering their sacrifice.
