The duo originally recorded an acoustic performance of the song while they were in their home studio and released it on their social media accounts. They received an immediate outpouring of support from their fans and their performance was recently spotlighted by Taste of Country. Additionally, CB30’s Christian Clementi worked as the producer on the track, marking the first self-produced song the duo released.
The brothers explain how they felt when they first heard the song and why they decided to record it. “When we first heard “drivers license,” by Olivia Rodrigo, we knew we had to do a cover,” says Brody Clementi. “We posted a clip of us singing the song on socials and fans really seemed to dig it, so we decided to release the full piano version.”
“This was really fun for us to work on,” adds Christian Clementi. “We recorded the song at our house and decided to have Brody sing lead. I actually produced the song which was super cool.”
CB30, comprised of real-life brothers Christian and Brody Clementi, grew up in Nashville surrounded by music from a young age. After playing some local charity events with their father Jay Clementi, a successful songwriter, they caught the attention of country superstar Luke Bryan who introduced them to various industry contacts leading to a record deal with Buena Vista Records, a partnership between Disney Music Group and Universal Music Group Nashville.
