FOR NIVA, THEY CAN
4/23/21

Monument’s Caitlyn Smith and Grammy-nominated Old Dominion are supporting the Nation Independent Venue Association with their official music video for “I Can’t.”

Premiering on CMT Hot 20 tomorrow (4/24), the video chronicles an independent venue owner facing closure, emphasizing the conditions many live music venues have faced since the start of the pandemic, while encouraging viewers to support NIVA’s Emergency Relief Fund.

“While this last year has been hard, it has hit these dreamers the hardest. They were the first ones to close and will be the last ones to re-open,” said Smith about the state of live music venues. 

Over the last few months, the singer/songwriter returned to the stages that inspired the fictitious Cait’s Lounge in the video, performing small shows for country radio programmers on her I Can’t Tour…Tour. 

“As a storyteller, stepping back onto these stages after they’ve sat empty for over a year has me aching for what they’ll feel like again when live music finally is able to return safely,” added Smith.

“I Can’t” f/Old Dominion is currently climbing the country radio charts and approaching the Top 40.  Most recently, Smith released her EP, Supernova Acoustic, on 3/26, which includes four new renditions of tracks from her debut and sophomore effort.
