Carly Tefft~ “Q&A” (New Song~ Traded)!!!

1.    Hi Carly, how have you grown as a country a singer and songwriter in the past year?

I feel like I’ve really honed my craft as a songwriter and artist; finding the people I love to write with, getting inspired by certain artists and truly just listening to my gut as to what I want to say, how I want to say it & how I want it to sound like. 

2.    How did you come up with the name “Traded” for your new single?

I’m a wicked big Boston Red Sox fan and I got inspired by the MLB trading deadline that’s in June and I thought, wow it’s crazy how one day a team can love you and the next day they trade you for a different player. Then it hit me, that’s just like what it’s like to get dumped for someone else. I brought the concept idea and melodic line I had to Greg Friia who’s a big Baltimore Orioles fan who immediately jumped onboard and we finished the song that same day.

3.    What is the background story behind your new song?

4.    Is there something you wish your fans would take away from this song?

It’s okay to be upset when you feel like you’ve been replaced! You have to let it out. But moreso, I hope folks learn through that kind of a situation, they’re worth so much more than being someone’s second choice or back up. And it’s a solid jam out in your car, gym, bedroom-hair-brush-in-the-mirror track!

5.    Was there any other artists or producers that help to create this tune?

Mike Stankewiecz of Sound Emporium Studios engineers & produced the project, Andrew Peebles on drums, Kyle Hovland on bass, Ben Kirsch on drums & Ben Alleman on keys…these incredible talented fellas were also on “Better Off At A Bar”

6.    Is there anything else coming up with your music for the rest of 2018?

Music video for Traded will be coming out in November…so stay tuned!
