The radio release of “Bottle
Your Crazy Up,”
written by Bart Almond and Amy Dalley and produced by
Travis Allen of Nashville Tracks, shot to the top of a number of radio and
internet charts including all the New Music Weekly Country charts in late 2014,
made the impregnable Music Row charts to the Top 20, and it crossed over into
their AC/Hot AC charts reaching into the Top 10 of NMW charts in early 2015. It
was the second single off my third career album release, Let It Go. It resulted
in my being awarded a New Music Award

The song and which the video narrative
faithfully follows, is of a friend suggesting to another friend that showing
too much, and trying too hard to quench the pain of a recent breakup was not
going to land that someone worth landing. BYCU is a spirited song of good
common sense and advice in matters of the heart. Itspeaks of a woman telling another not
to rebound after a breakup on her first date. She advises her friend not to
drink the tequila, to be on her best behavior, save the crazy for later.”

Everything about Bottle Your Crazy Up was
big. The song, the video, the production, dancers, cast and crew size in the
making of the video; everything was big. It was the first music video that I
co-authored a story script for a production of that size.  As I often say I came to Los Angeles to make
films, and in a sense I do so by creating my music videos.

The official music video of Bottle Your Crazy Up was directed by
Denice Duff, who was amazing and from whom I learned so much. The
cinematographer was Frankie Guererro, and Sevier Crespo and Jamie Fisher
produced the video, Shot primarily at the world-famous Cowboy Palace in
Chatsworth, California. The high-spirited video co-stars, with myself, actors
Jason Tobias (All Is Not Quiet) and Ava Capra and features Julie Michaels, from
the Patrick Swayze film Road House. There are scenes as well at Burbank
Equestrian Center, Hollywood’s most exclusive horse stables.The video received 65,000 + Youtube views and still
attracts new views today.

Denise later released a really coolBehind the Scenes of Bottle Your Crazy Up’ in January of 2015 as well, which further increased
the views of the original.

BYCUis the kind of song that begged for a line dance mix, which was the track that
we used and created for the video. My experience with a past country dance
promotion of “Out With The Girls” a Producer’s Choice LA Music Award Dance
Single of 2010 from my Movin’ On album, had impressed me with the possibilities
that line-dance afforded a country artist’s music.  Especially for an up tempo Country-Pop
singer-songwriter like myself. 

Music is about people, especially
Country. It grew out of the need for people to get together at the end of a
work week. Line-dancing is definitely about people getting together.

We launched the dance mix of “Bottle Your Crazy Up” with
Wildhorse Entertainment International Superstars of Country; and it reached,
#1 on their Download Chart and held the position all of July 2015.
Wildhorse did a great job of getting it out to the dance instructors and choreographers
worldwide. My favorite dance walkthrough video was” choreographed by Randy Pelletier of the One Eyed Parrot
Dance Club in the UK, on October 13, 2014

I was able to visit a
number of dance clubs during my radio station tour of the Central U.S. states
like Kentucky, Alabama, Ohio and Tennessee. I enjoyed visiting the Wildhorse
Saloon and got to visit with

Bottle
Your Crazy Up

Tonight’s the night first date in a long time

You had your share of girl’s night out

Now we talk trash and we love to man bash

We all know what’s really going down

You wanna feel like a girly girl

You wanna guy to rock your world

I know you didn’t ask me

But if I were you this is what I’d do

Don’t order the tequila

Cause you know how you get

Don’t talk about your ex

You aint over him yet

You can wear the short skirt

But I’d skip the heels

And don’t go on about how ya feel

Just for tonight

Bottle your crazy up

Bottle your crazy up

Don’t be mad

I’m just trying to remind you

You know I know

Just what you mean

A little less might work in your favor

Remember that guy in New Orleans

He saw too much of everything

You were just trying to get more beads

I know you didn’t ask me

But if I were you this is what I’d do

Don’t order the tequila

Cause you know how you get

Don’t talk about your ex

You aint over him yet

You can wear the short skirt

But I’d skip the heels

And don’t go on about how ya feel

Just for tonight

Bottle your crazy up

I’m not saying don’t be yourself

But you think this guy is something else

So don’t get wild

And get drunk tonight

Don’t order the tequila

Cause you know how you get

Don’t talk about your ex

You aint over him yet

You can wear the short skirt

But I’d skip the heels

And don’t go on about how ya feel

Don’t order the tequila

Cause you know how you get

Don’t talk about your ex

You aint over him yet

You can wear the short skirt

But I’d skip the heels

And don’t go on about how ya feel

Just for tonight

Bottle your crazy up

Bottle your crazy up

Oh yeah

Go!

Go girl!
