Rainey Qualley's "Me And Johnny Cash"

A few nights a week I like to watch MTV U (short for MTV University - it caters to college aged people and those in their 20s) before I go to bed. While most music they play isn't something I would listen to on a regular basis, I really like this song:




I really like the sound and feel to it, although the music video makes Rainey Qualley look a bit psychotic. I like the old country feel to it and her confidence. I'm going to buy the song on iTunes.

Rainey Qualley is Andy MacDowell's daughter and apparently was an actress before she became a singer. Her IMDb profile is tiny, but it looks like she's acted in a few well known roles. Rainey Qualley IMDb.



Here is another song on MTV U I really like.I'm usually not a Joey Bada$$ fan, but the song makes me want to dance. I also love the woman singer's voice. I think her voice really makes the song and is what sold me on the song:

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    Sorry to report that your blog is still not being updated in my reader. I'm glad I went hunting and found this post.

    I enjoyed Rainey's song and video. She really does resemble her mother Andie MacDowell whom I enjoyed in the movies Sex, Lies and Videotape and Four Weddings and a Funeral. I see that Rainey had an acting role in Mad Men. Rainey's a hottie and the director of her "Johnny Cash" video exploited that fact, producing a vignette reminiscent of the slick clips that aired on MTV in the 80s. Visual elements commonly used back then as well as in this 2015 production include slow motion breaking glass, splashing liquid and getting soaked with water.

    I also enjoyed the hip hop/rap song. I recently bought three dozen rap CDs and am surprising myself by really getting into the genre.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Jessica!

    1. Hey Shady,

      That's so weird! I don't really have the time to call Google anymore; hopefully it straightens itself out eventually.

      I thought Rainey's video was reminiscent of 80s videos and TV shows. I like shows from that period. And her style reminds me of that time period too. Honestly, I was a bit surprised MTV U was playing it - they're not too big on playing country; at least when I watch it.

      Haha, I'm glad you're getting into the genre, Shady. :) Which artists did you buy?

      Check out Twiztid. They're a rap/rock/horrorcore hybrid and I love them. :)
