Annie Bosko Is ‘Coastin” Into Summer Fun in Her New Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Annie Bosko's new video is a guaranteed good time, and Taste of Country readers are getting to see it before anyone else.
Bosko's last video for "Crooked Halo" garnered over 188,000 views. The aspiring country star — who recently performed "God Bless America" in front of 300,000 attendees at Nashville's 4th of July festivities — shot the sunny "Coastin'" video on location in Venice Beach and Malibu in California.
The song is about getting away from it all and soaking up the sun to recharge. "Right now gotta peace out / Gonna drive south 'til my tires touch the sand," Bosko sings.
The track superimposes a banjo over a contemporary rhythm track for a very modern country feel. Directed by Patrick Tracy, the video features pop duo High Dive Heart and Bosko driving in their Jeep, riding bikes along the beach, hula hooping and just generally taking it easy in the summer sun.
Bosko is the middle child of a third generation farmer, and her family has no background in the music business. Even so, she knew from a young age that she would have to make her way to Music City. "I'd read the liner notes on albums I loved by Deana Carter, Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn, Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, whoever. They were all in Nashville, so I knew I had to get there at some point," she says.
Since arriving in town, her credits include opening or backing vocal slots with Darius Rucker, Adele, Josh Groban, Dierks Bentley, Big & Rich, Josh Turner and more. She's sung the national anthem at an NBA All-Star game, and she sang the demos for some songs that went on to become big radio hits for other artists.
Rolling Stone Country recently named Bosko one of their 10 New Artists You Need to Know. She's taking her own turn in the spotlight with "Coastin'," which she's offering for free download at her website.
