  • screw louisville, go cats… OHHHH C.A.T.S. CATS CATS CATS! hahaha. And who drinks rye whiskey in kentucky… its bourbon country, c’mon.

  • i’m not sure what you’re talking about but ok

  • William

    Oh wow. I never thought I would deal with that U.C. Jazz here. Oh well.

    But back to on topic. Pretty good for the most part. For some reason I love the wind blowing on the mic. It seems that she hasn’t been to Kentucky either. Miss-pronouncing Louisville, Drinking Rye whiskey, Cowboys, and deserts. All not Kentucky. Good song though. Very well done.

    Oh, and the last look that she gives the camera, right before it cuts to credits is absolutely gorgeous. The entire time I was stuck wondering when she would recognize the camera.

    An echo of Vincent Moon, but very well done to the point that it has its own spirit.

    -William

  • lovely.

  • I kid y’all. I don’t even watch sports. (Jeff, its about Louisville cardinals and Kentucky wildcat rivalry)

    William, i totally agree, she hasn’t been to Kentucky.

  • I’m with William, too. Song itself is lovely, though.

  • Joe

    kind of flat-line, no?

  • FURCHESSSSSSSS! She actually is from the south. I thought North Carolina, but it could be Kentucky. Either way I know she didn’t grow up in the city.
