Hear Cam Cover Adele’s New Single, ‘Hello’
Singer-songwriter Cam is best known for her hit "Burning House," but during a recent appearance on The Bobby Bones Show, the up-and-coming country star proved that her vocals are pretty darn stellar no matter what she's singing.
Cam, who is originally from the West Coast, has been heating up the South with her debut EP, Welcome to Cam Country, which dropped in April. She co-wrote the project's four tracks and has been working on her debut full-length album since then with producer Jeff Bhasker (Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, Pink, fun., Bruno Mars).
Her career has been a whirlwind in the best possible way: She's made her debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry, opened for Loretta Lynn and earned her first Top 15 single. Earlier this month, Cam released the music video for "Burning House," directed by Trey Fanjoy, the mastermind behind many hit music videos. The clip was inspired by a dream the singer had about an ex-boyfriend.
“I had a fella that I dated on-again, off-again in college, and towards the end of the relationship, I wanted to kinda get out, and I didn’t do it very nice. I was gonna see him about a year or two later, at a mutual friend’s party, and I thought, ‘This is my chance to apologize,'” she explains. “I thought so much about how I was gonna put that apology before that party that night before, I went to bed with all that on my mind, [and] I dreamt about this house. It was on fire, and all the rescue crews were out, and they couldn’t put out the fire. They were saying, ‘He’s in there, but you can’t go in there. The house is about to come down.’ And, like the hero I am, I ran inside, and he was in there. Instead of leaving and saving myself, I just laid down next to him and held him so he wouldn’t have to die alone."
