article imageDrew Jacobs talks 'If She Ain't Country' single, Shania Twain Special

Rising country artist Drew Jacobs chatted with Digital Journal about his new single "If She Ain't Country," its music video, and he revealed his dream female country duet choices.
On the idea for the song, Jacobs said, "We all got together and we wanted to write a really fun song. John Pregler actually brought that chorus to the table, and we wanted to make it the 'Uptown Funk' of country. That was our goal. Once we had the chorus, it took us a day to write the verses, and it just came so easy."
Jacobs admitted that it was a great deal of fun to do the music video for the song. "The choreographer, Glenn Douglas Packard, did a great job with the dancers," he said.
He revealed that he has a new video in the works for a song called "Jesus and You." "That was a huge production. We had our local fire department come out and the paramedics come out, and they all volunteered their time. The video is going to look amazing. We had a blast," he said. "We rented a Red Dragon camera and the video looks cinematic. It is so beautiful."

On the impact of technology on the country music business, Jacobs said, "Technology makes my job a lot easier. There is no doubt about it. Technology has helped me quit three jobs essentially, so I get to do this full-time, and there is nothing else that I would want to be doing."
"I use technology to write my songs, record videos and I use my upgraded camera to post my videos," he said, about his use of technology. "I use my Notes in my phone to record song lyrics, and I have so many choruses and verse ideas on my Voice Memos. I wouldn't be on any map if it weren't for technology."
Jacobs listed songstresses Danielle Bradbery and Shania Twain as his dream female duet choices. "I love Danielle's voice, and I think we would match well together. Shania Twain was a big influence on me and I have always loved her since I was a kid, so that would be a dream come true," he said. "My goal one day would be to sing 'Party For Two' with her. That's my dream right there. At that point, I would be done."
Drew Jacobs' "If She Ain't Country" is available on iTunes. "I would like to thank my fans for all of their support. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be releasing music," he said, graciously. "Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
