Your Best Life Nashville
TWO HOMES ONE HEART: MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERE WITH CHRIS HOLLACHECK
Born in New Bern, NC and raised down a 7 mile dirt road deep in the woods, Chris Hollacheck grew up in the kind of setting you’d picture being in a country song. His musical journey started very early when he learned cello at 3 years old! Chris has also played piano, trumpet, baritone, and bass guitar and performed singing and acting in numerous plays all before the age of 18. After graduating high school, he picked up guitar in college at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. It was there that he discovered his passion for songwriting and singing country music. Once he graduated college, he moved to Nashville in 2014.
After a couple years of playing open mics and writer rounds and working odd jobs, Chris decided to leave Nashville and travel the country. He started venturing in Florida and then Texas, where he played more frequent shows and gained a diverse group of fans. During this time, he released his first radio single “Knotty Thing” in January 2019.
Congratulations on your latest music video Two Homes One Heart! What is the biggest tip you followed when creating the vision?
Just keep it simple and to the point.
How did the vision evolve from the start to the finish?
We originally wanted to hire a male, female, and child actor to portray my childhood, however we ran into a lot of hurdles with child actor laws and budget issues, so we just decided to keep it simple. At this point I was burned out from going so hard releasing so much content this year. Any tricks up your sleeve when making the video?
No special tricks. For a music video, as long as you have 3 main scenes, you’re good to go!
Was there a collection of ideas that you had or did you have a really specific idea on the video?
My videographer came up with some cool ideas for finding an abandoned house to use in the scene as well as some cool B-roll scenery.
How much time did you demand of yourself to focus on the video?
Not a whole lot. My videographer took care of a lot of the heavy work for me. At this point, I was recovering from a burn out.
Do you have any tips or tricks for our audience on how to manage your time when it comes to making sure your music is on track for release?
Ultimately you want to have a video ready to go by the Monday following the release (Monday is the best day to release a music video), however I kinda let go of attachment to that outcome for this one. Doing that gave more time for perfection on the video.
