So, maybe I’m slightly biased, but I am a big Brooke Eden fan. I know Brooke, I love Brooke, and I root Brooke on wholeheartedly, each and every step of the way. I am absolutely thrilled to share that the next step of the way for Brooke is the one her fans, friends, and family have been long awaiting — her first single!
Since Brooke was little, it has been her dream to be a performer. It comes as no coincidence that her first official single is titled “American Dreamin’,” an ode to anyone who has a dream, is chasing a dream, and is, ultimately, living a dream. I have been hearing Brooke perform this song for quite some time now, and it has always stood out to me as an obvious choice to pour through my car speakers one day. That one day has come and, starting today, “American Dreamin'” will blast through cars everywhere when 103.1 WIRK and Sirius XM The Highway debut Brooke Eden, introducing her as the next big “it girl” in country music.
“American Dreamin'” leaves live audiences waving their hands in the air as Brooke sings “yeah yeah yeah yeah-yeah” during the incredibly catchy chorus that is nothing short of the best ear candy you will be served. The song, penned by Brooke, along with Will Rambeaux and Sherrie Austin, contains lyrics that celebrate the importance of being yourself, never letting adversity keep you from following your heart, and enjoying each moment of the ride. The song starts with an inspirational verse:
Well I’ve always been the girl with stars in her eyes, now they’re sayin’ there’s a hole in my apple pie sky, but I just keep lookin’ up. They say we’re slippin’ down that slippery slope, hard to hold on to faith when you’re losin’ hope, but I ain’t givin’ in to givin’ up.
In the time I have known Brooke, and in the stories I have heard about her in the years before, she is truly “American Dreamin'” personified, as she fights the most beautiful fight to keep being heard, to keep putting music out there, and to keep working hard toward her dream. It is incredibly exhilarating to see this particular artist moving forward toward her goals and getting the recognition she so rightfully deserves, as she works tirelessly to become a force in country music. Today marks the first day of the rest of your life, Brooke, and the entire #CMchat team can’t wait to witness the magic that lies ahead.
