Video shot by three-time CMT Director of the Year Steven Goldmann
(Nashville, Tenn. – May 11, 2011) FUNL Music recording artist Amber Hayes is debuting the music video for her current single, “Wait,” this Friday, May 13, at 9 a.m. CDT as an exclusive world premiere on Yallwire.com.
Shot and directed by award-winning film and music video producer/director Steven Goldmann (Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride), Hayes traveled from Nashville to Los Angeles to film the video in Simi Valley during an extended weekend in April.
“The first time I saw Amber perform, I knew I wanted to work with her,” says three-time CMT Director of the Year Goldmann. “I just felt like I was seeing someone special up on stage. Her talent, work ethic and laid-back personality made working on this video with her a real pleasure, and I’m so glad we got a chance to do it. Amber is a rare talent in this business.”
Yallwire.com subscribers will also receive exclusive, behind-the-scenes photos and video from Hayes’ “Wait” video shoot.
“It was such an honor to have had an opportunity to work with director Steven Goldmann,” says Hayes. “I realize now that most of my favorite videos were actually directed by him, so needless to say, I feel extremely blessed and fortunate that he wanted to be involved in my video for ‘Wait.’”
“Wait” is the second single released off of Hayes’ 2010 debut, C’mon. The six-track EP has already produced one Top 40 single on the Music Row chart with its title track, and “Wait” is currently approaching Top 40 status as well. The Oklahoma native has earned high praise from critics for her ability to integrate traditional-style Country music with contemporary, radio-friendly appeal.
