ThunderNation, ‘Diane’ by Cam is easily one of the most creative songs to come out of Nashville in years. Cam penned this song with Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson as a response to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’. “This is the reverse basically of Jolene. This is the other woman coming forward and saying ‘I didn’t realize he was your husband. I didn’t realize he had a wife’ and she calls up the wife and tells her the truth so she can decide what to do with her life from there,” says Cam. The video was directed by Daniel Carberry and is classic, classy and retro, just like the curly haired songstress.
“The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all,” Cam told Taste Of Country.
Cam has talked to her fans via Facebook Live with a series of Dear Diane. In this particular episode of Dear Diane, she says that she is “letting Diane have her moment like any brilliant woman should and then the album is coming later this year.”
The exact release date for her sophomore album hasn’t been announced yet but as long as it is as good as ‘Diane’, it is certainly going to be worth the wait! Stay tuned to Thunder106 for all of the latest cutting-edge country!
