Rising country artist Shae Dupuy recently released her latest single “Black and White.”
With some of the most honest and real lyrics you’ve heard in a song, Shae tackles the age old question “what went wrong?” While many times it’s easy to pinpoint it on something, just as often there’s not a great reason for ending a relationship. Shae finds herself stuck in the grey area, which oddly enough leaves her with more questions and feeling even worse about the relationship being over.
It’s Friday and 5 O’Clock somewhere so pop a cold one and enjoy our Q&A Six-Pack with Shae Dupuy about her recent release “Black and White”
- What was the songwriting process like?
I came into the write for “Black and White” already having the idea. A friend and I had been having this conversation about this breakup I had just been through and I told him I just wished it was black and white and I knew I had to write that song.
- Did you have a certain vibe or sound in mind when writing it?
I knew it wasn’t going to be a happy song, but not much else besides that!
- What was it like working with Kyle Rife, Jeremy Bussey (Jason Aldean), and Derek Wells (Kenny Chesney, Maren Morris) on this track?
Kyle and Jermey really got where I wanted to go with this idea and helped me create the bones of this song. Derek took those bones and brought this song to life. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to work with!
- If you could describe the emotions of the song in 3 words, what would they be?
I’d probably use: sad, frustrated, and romantic.
- When people listen to this, what do you want them to get out of the song?
I want people to understand that even though we wish things were black and white, they rarely are. Sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s ok!
- Anything else fans should know?
Keep an eye out for more music coming soon!
