Rising country artist, Julia Capogrossi, left Indiana University and moved to Nashville just over two years ago, not really knowing but a few people, to pursue her dream.
Capogrossi participated in her first CMA Music Festival in June where she performed on various stages throughout the week, met fans and signed autographs. Just two months ago, she held the coveted spot of the sole American entertainer at the San Pedro Country Music Festival held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Busch Light Budget was her first video debut which was filmed at The Old Oak Mexican Taqueria Gas Station in Spring Hill.
Capogrossi told us her videographer found the location. “He finds the best locations! I have to say this place had the best tacos.”
Written by Capogrossi herself, Busch Light Budget depicts situations she and her friends are all too familiar with; couch-coin finding, bonfires and of course, cheap beer. The relatable lyrics have been well received by country radio and industry personnel. Renowned music critic Robert K. Oermann commented on her vocals by saying “perky and pert, this gal has a saucy lilt in her delivery.”
And there’s new music coming soon. Capogrossi has already filmed her next music video. She shared exclusively with us about the new song.
“It’s funny we actually filmed the music video before the song was finished because it’s such a story song. The song is called “Morgan”, it’s about heartbreak and a boy that doesn’t care.”
Capogrossi says to expect the song to hit radio in the next 30 days.
As we head into Thanksgiving, Capogrossi told us one of her favorite things about the holiday is being with her family and it still is but now it’s about her mom’s cooking as she says one of the only times she gets turkey and stuffing.
