By: Sep. 01, 2020

Brenda Cay releases her music video for her single, "I Fish," debuting on Apple Hot Tracks 8.14.2020 which premiered on The Women of Country.

The single was quickly picked up for licensing by Rhapsody directly after it's release. The music video delivers the heartfelt message of deeply missing someone while shairng Brenda's real memories of watching her two brothers walk to the local lake to fish together. "I Fish" was inspired by Cay's memory of her brother who passed away a few years ago in a tragic motorcycle accident. She expresses the emotions and thoughts behind this message and executes an emotional pull with delicacy and passion in her newest single. "I Fish". It can be extremely hard to revisit places and memories that were once shared with a lost loved one. Whether it is packing up the truck for a day of fishing or just driving to the spot you visited often, remembering traditions can be a tricky journey.

"I grew up on the eastern shore of Maryland with my brothers where we spent a lot of time around the water. Five years ago, one of my younger brothers was killed in a motorcycle accident. Even now, it's the little things that trigger a painful reminder that he's not here. I love the water for the sense of serenity and freedom it brings. I hope by expressing how difficult it is to relive the memories shared with a lost loved one, others can find healing. That's why this song is so important to me. It gives me a chance to connect with others who have lost someone they love."
