(Nashville, Tenn. – Sept. 22, 2014) – Country recording artist Veronica Ballestrini has released a concept video for her current single, “Cookies and Cream,” which is now available for viewing on her YouTube page (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSO55y1ZcRM&). Directed by Carl Diebold, the video was shot in downtown Nashville, Tenn., and features the iconic Elliston Place Soda Shop.
“Cookies and Cream” is an upbeat, high-spirited anthem reminiscent of the overwhelming “can’t eat, can’t sleep” feeling of falling in love and being in a “love spell” where life is filled with laughter and magic. This whimsical and bubbly tune showcases a fun, softer side of the young singer and highlights her versatile songwriting skills.
