Eddie Ray Arnold Feels True Freedom in Music Video For ‘What If I Don’t’ (PREMIERE)

Rising country star Eddie Ray Arnold to release a new music video for his single ‘What If I Don’t.’ You can watch it premiere here:

The music video for Eddie Ray Arnold’s latest single ‘What If I Don’t’ is a simple but effective compliment to an already great country song. The viewer is presented with shots of Arnold driving on unoccupied roads in a gorgeous cherry red sports car, and Arnold dancing and pouring his heart out through song, telling the story of his newfound freedom. He’s happy throughout the video even though he’s alone the whole time, which is a perfect visualization for a song so thoroughly about leaving a relationship and being confident in that decision. Shots of large stretches of trees also add a feeling of wide open space and living in the country to the video. Overall, this is a smart addition to the narrative presented in ‘What If I Don’t.’

A self-proclaimed performer since the age of 7 – starting with the Piano Players Guild of America – Eddie Ray Arnold has made music an integral and essential part of his life. Eddie grew up in Colorado, surrounded by the Earth’s natural wonders; as a result, he spent much of his time communing with the land by hunting, fishing, and camping. His single, ‘Beautiful Day,’ references HWY 285 which begins just outside of Denver. Today, Eddie lives in North Georgia with his wife and children.

Eddie’s music tends towards the upbeat, with a focus on life’s positives over anything else. This focus comes out in full force during his energetic live shows, where you’ll rarely see him standing still or playing something slow. Notable stages Eddie has occupied in the past include The Melting Point, The Foundry, The 40 Watt, Historic Ritz Theatre in Toccoa, GA, Madison County Fair, Live on TV with Dave and Michelle, and Live on Radio with It’s Friday. Most recently he has performed at The Scoreboard Nashville and The Local in Nashville.

When asked to describe what separates him from other current artists in the genre, Eddie had this to say: 

“What may be unusual is that I’m more positive in my content than most in country. I’m also not trying to be an outlaw or something else, I’m not trying to fit into a box. I just want to play my songs and I hope people like them.”

Not only a musician, Eddie also has experience with a host of other careers and hobbies, including windsurfing, calligraphy and graphic design, preaching, sharpshooting, firefighting, and DJing, just to name a few. He is truly a multi-talent, and that breadth of experience is something that he can pull from to heighten his own music.

Eddie is currently signed with Emanant Music Group out of Nashville and Atlanta, and he hopes to continue doing what he loves and improving with each song and each performance.
