Single and Video Out Now ~ Available on Streaming Platforms

When your heart is aching after a breakup, something simple can remind you of them that stops you in your tracks.”

— Jillian Cardarelli, Country Artist & Songwriter

NASHVILLE, TN, USA, February 2, 2024 / — Country Artist / Songwriter Jillian Cardarelli releases the new music video for her single “I Hate Chevys,” available now on all streaming platforms. The single, written by Cardarelli, Arlis Albritton, and Ben Rue, was produced by Daniel Dennis. The music visualizer (video) was directed and produced by Dusty Barker (VAYLL).

Cardarelli describes the idea behind the humorous and ironic take on heartbreak that can manifest itself in nonsensical ways, like blaming a truck.

“It’s always fun to share a different take on a heartbreak song,” said Jillian Cardarelli. “When your heart is aching after a breakup, something simple can remind you of them that stops you in your tracks. What’s unique is that the character in this song wants to blame Chevrolet’s popularity and reliability for her pain, but what we all know is that it’s really about those everyday reminders of someone we’re missing that sting the most. And by the way, I love Chevys.”

This is Cardarelli’s first single release in 2024 with big things on the horizon for this talented young lady. The Massachusetts native is blazing her own unique path within the Nashville music scene with her stunning vocals, captivating songwriting and strong work ethic.

Her latest singles “If I Could Talk to Elvis,” “Could’ve Been Boy,” and “Country Side” all garnered streaming support from Apple Music, Spotify and Pandora. Her popular single “If I Could Talk to Elvis” featuring Larry Strickland hit #1 Fan Voted Video on CMT 12-Pack Countdown with appearances on WSM’s Coffee, Country & Cody, Sirius XM Radio – Elvis Radio, and Fox & Friends.

In 2023, Cardarelli played the Spotlight Stage for CMA Fest and iHeart Country Stage for the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. She has opened for acts such as Reba, Willie Nelson, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Hunter Hayes, Scotty McCreery, Trace Adkins, Easton Corbin and Alabama.
