Sellers plans to "Sit Here and Cry"
Monday, September 26, 2016
– Aubrie Sellers released a single, "Sit Here and Cry," the same week she will see her debut reissued.
"Sit Here and Cry" was co-written with Adam Wright and is on "New City Blues." Sellers released the disc independently in January. Warner will reissue the disc this Friday with two bonus tracks.
"There may be people who think this is a song about being paralyzed 'cause the guy left," she said. "Most girls are far less destroyed than people want to believe. So this song is like one giant eye roll, or maybe a 'yeah, that's what you think...' set to music. We are stronger and bounce back faster than some songs paint us, and that's what this song's all about."
"When Frank (Liddell, the producer) and I were working on this track," Sellers said, "I knew we wanted it to be aggressive without knocking people down. I wanted listeners to feel this girl was pissed. Anyone might think she was sad about the guy leaving, but especially that the guy might think it. The more we talked, we realized: less is more, because every instrument can really expand and hit as hard as those other records. It's also the point: this girl is every bit as strong as whomever left her." Liddell is Sellers' stepfather.
Sellers, the daughter of Lee Ann Womack and songwriter Jason Sellers, is getting ready to hit the road as part of Tucker Beathard's Rock On College Tour, as well as headline her own electric shows.

New City Blues
Aubrie Sellers may have the musical genes, but that will go only so far because she has carved her own path on her debut. Just how one would categorize Sellers musically may not be as easy. Oh, she's definitely got a country sound going - "Losing Ground," "Something Special" and the tick tock drums of the slower "Humming Song" - are proof of that. But then there's the garagey, rockabilly, swampy sounds as well (the charging leadoff "Light of Day," »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»
