Sierra Black Gets Personal in Romantic ‘Make It Easy’ Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Sierra Black's beautiful new video for "Make It Easy" really opens up her private life to her fans.
The singer invited her husband, Ryan, to co-star with her in the romantic clip, which intersperses footage of them spending time together out in nature with video from their real-life wedding. Black used "Make It Easy" as part of their wedding video, which has been viewed on Facebook more than 4 million times. "Make It Easy" has also garnered more than 114,000 streams on Spotify.
Black has been working with Nashville super-producer Mark Bright, whose credits include Rascal Flatts and Carrie Underwood. She gets to put her big, clear voice to work on the soaring ballad, but while she delivers it with power, she doesn't over-sing.
She says choosing the love song as her new single was an easy decision.
"I loved 'Make it Easy' from the moment I started writing it," Black says. "Lyrically, vocally and musically I felt it was me in a song. I am so excited to not only share the music with you but share the video and the story behind it."
The Las Vegas native gave her first public performance at the age of 12, and she built a thriving performing career in her hometown, joining Keith Urban onstage for a duet at a festival and even getting to sing with Garth Brooks during a rehearsal. That gave her the confidence to try her luck in Nashville, where she met Bright. She points her mix of Vegas glamor and all-American appeal as something that sets her apart, and it's a mix she has no interest in changing.
“The most important thing is to be exactly who I am. The most important thing is to be true to yourself," she says.
