Nashville-based singer-songwriter and author Brittany Bexton has recently dropped her empowering new single Kissin’ Fear Goodbye. As someone who has faced PTSD herself, and bouts of crippling fear as a result, with this song, Bexton offers a glimmer of hope for others who may be experiencing similar struggles. Confronting the fear she had dealt with for so long, she encourages her listeners to do the same and to take back power over their lives by choosing freedom. Brittany spoke with The Fountain about the track in more depth along with her plans for 2021.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Kissin’ Fear Goodbye?
The reception for the new song has been great among my fans and folks I know. I had a few friends tell me they were listening to the track on repeat to get through the day. It’s always a journey with new music, getting it out to the masses, but I’m excited for this one to reach more people. With all the fear that has overshadowed this year, it’s time to have something empowering to listen to that says “enough!”
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
This song is an anthem about taking your power back, and telling fear to shove it.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
We are getting really close to Christmas music taking over, so I’m likely not going to do anything huge until January. But I’m going to start working on some video projects. One that will go with this song. I’m also continuing to do online shows, and looking forward to getting out for some live in person shows as soon as more places open up.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
I don’t know that I can really pick a favourite venue. But I can say that my favourite types of shows to play are fair and festival shows. They have a vibrancy and energy about them that I love. This year, most of the fairs and festivals were cancelled, so I’m really looking forward to those being open and running again.
