Video Spotlight: Bri Bagwell – Crazy

Currently sitting at #48 on the Texas Music Chart and #67 on the Texas Regional Radio Report is Bri Bagwell’s “Crazy”. Bagwell released a video for the single last week and it make it in to our Video Spotlight this week (Be sure to check out the Single Spotlight we did on the song earlier this month> Watch the video below!


Bri Bagwell is real country music, and what country music should strive to be. She is an independent artist without a record deal, and without management. Her popularity is derived 100% by word of mouth and her raw talent. This grass roots effort is rare these days; it speaks to her infectious music and appeal.

She fell in love with music at an early age, and started playing in a band with her older brothers while just a teenager growing up in New Mexico. A couple of weeks after turning 18, she moved to Austin, TX to study at UT and begin her music career in the live music capital of the world. Late nights, rowdy Texas crowds, and being alone on stage with just a guitar shaped her onstage charismatic charm. She learned to gain a crowd’s attention with her beautiful voice, singing songs she wrote herself.

She earned a degree in Marketing from UT, but did not enter the corporate world. Instead, she pulled together some outstanding Bri Bagwellmusicians, and now tours with a full band. Her first CD, “Banned from Santa Fe”, released June 2011, sold through the several printings, and is gaining traction very quickly among music fans. Bri Bagwell was the only female artist on the Texas Music Chart for a few weeks with her single, also titled “Banned from Santa Fe” and her song “Whiskey” became her 1st top 15 hit and has passed 30,000 youtube views on the single’s video.

In the internet age with music coming at you from every type of media, it is harder and harder for artists to get attention. Bri Bagwell is not only gaining attention, but she is also drumming up excitement; and, she does it all without a million-dollar budget.
