Have you heard the new single yet from Huntsville country singer Alexis Taylor?

Huntsville, ON’s Alexis Taylor has spent the last six weeks or so promoting her brand new video for her sweet ode to new love, “Cool With That.”

“It’s a fun, flirty tune about that ‘puppy love’ stage of a relationship,” Alexis said. “It’s about that stage where you just can’t get enough of each other.”

That she penned “Cool With That” is par for the course when it comes to the Ontario-based singer-songwriter. You could even say it was destiny.

“Both my parents are songwriters and have always been very musical,” she said. “Music is a part of me… It has always been in my blood.”

Alexis has wasted no time pursuing her passion. Since stepping onto the scene in 2016, she has racked up over 200,000 streams across all platforms; played Canadian Music Week and CMA Fest in Nashville, TN; and opened for the Marshall Tucker Band, Love and Theft, Meghan Patrick, Doug Seegers and more.

She’s won Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2018 Tennessee Music Awards and has been nominated for Modern Country Vocalist of the Year at the 2020 Josie Music Awards.

And on the topic of Tennessee: While the song itself was recorded and produced in Nashville with award-winning artist and producer John Willis (Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan), most of the scenes from the video for “Cool With That” were filmed in her hometown of Huntsville — a small but popular cottage and rural region about 200 kilometres north of Toronto.

“I wanted to reflect who I am when I’m not on the road or on stage,” Alexis said. “It was nice to be able to include where I grew up in this music video. Where I’m from is a big part of who I am, and it has made me the person I am today!

“I wanted to shoot something that would leave a smile on people’s faces,” she added, hinting at her incredibly handsome, must-see co-star. “I think he adds an undeniable amount of cuteness to the song, don’t you?”

See for yourself; “Cool With That” is available now.
