JASON NIX PREMIERES “MARY WANNA” MUSIC VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY WITH CMT

Friday, June 17, 2022 - 12:15pm

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Continuing a year of impressive firsts, from his first ACM Award win for Song of the Year (as a co-writer on Lainey Wilson’s Gold-certified No. 1 hit “Things A Man Oughta Know”) to the first glimpse at his forthcoming concept project via lead single “Mary Wanna,” singer-songwriter Jason Nix continues to build momentum as an artist in his own right today, June 17, with the first music video off the project. Debuting the “Mary Wanna” music video exclusively with CMT, Nix offers a further introduction to the characters that will color his full story later this year. Watch HERE.
 
“I didn’t grow up with cable, so I never got to watch music videos. That made hearing my music behind one even more special for me,” the Nashville-born and South Mississippi-raised singer-songwriter shared with CMT of the video directed by Caitlin McNaney and shot/edited by Corey Miller. “I hope that it makes people interested in what’s coming next for these characters. We dropped a couple of Easter eggs in this video that will make more sense as we release more music!”
 
Released in May as the first introduction to the EP Nix plans to release in the coming months via Jody Williams Songs/Warner Chappell Music, ‘Mary Wanna’ is a windows-down, singalong tribute to the renegade title character and all the women living life on their own terms that she represents. 
 
 “‘Mary Wanna’ is the song that got my wheels turning again on releasing music as a solo artist. I love the way it makes me feel,” reflects Nix of the track produced by Chip Matthews. “I’ve always wanted to do a concept album and ‘Mary Wanna’ paints a very clear picture of what Mary’s role will be in this story. She’s a rebel who feels trapped by her parents’ idea of who she should be; she feels smothered by her community’s expectations of how a young woman should act. She is desperately looking for the freedom to find out who she is, even if it means breaking some hearts along the way.”

About Jason Nix
Born in Nashville and raised in South Mississippi, Jason Nix grew up on a blend of his musical father’s Bluegrass and his mother’s love of Motown while introducing his own passion for Classic Rock into the mix. It’s no surprise then that his return to Music City just after high school led to the creation of a sound all his own, driven by his strengths as both a guitar player and a lyricist. 17 years later, having established himself as an award-winning, in-demand songwriter and earning cuts from artists ranging from Keb’ Mo’ to Lainey Wilson (including the recent ACM Song of the Year “Things A Man Oughta Know”), Nix now presents himself as a must-hear artist with brand-new release “Mary Wanna.” Written by Nix together with Driver Williams as the first in a series of concept songs coming soon, the song introduces the free-spirited character of Mary while also introducing Nix himself.
