Kylie Morgan just premiered the music video for her song, “Shoulda,” on CMT. “I co-wrote this song over Zoom back when we thought quarantine would be over in a few months,” Kylie previously said in a press release. “Even in those first few weeks I was going crazy wanting to get back to ‘normal.’ I wanted to go sit at a bar, hug a stranger or most of all, play more shows. So, I put all of those feelings into this song by highlighting we want what we can’t have and want to do what we shouldn’t. Once this is all behind us, my dream is to play this song in a stadium full of people with everyone singing the words back to me. I hope this is our anthem for all the things we shoulda done.”
