CARTER’S CHORD’S “LOVE A LITTLE BIGGER” VIDEO SET TO WORLD PREMIERE ON VEVO APRIL 16

The song, written by Emily, was inspired by a trip the group took to Guatemala where they experienced first-hand the poverty people in that area were living in. “When we made the trip to Guatemala in 2009, we were struck by the amazing need for love that exists in this world,” says Emily.  “After returning home, I sat down one afternoon and wrote this song. As artists, our hope for the world is that we all learn to ‘Love A Little Bigger’.”

 

"We chose to partner with World Vision because we really believe in what they do as a company and wanted to do something through our music that would reach people on a global level,” adds Emily. “Our partnership with World Vision allows us to play our music while also sharing with our fans how they can help a child in need.”

 

The video, shot by award-winning director, Chris Hicky was filmed in areas where World Vision is working to provide education resources, training and assistance to help the local people build better lives and featured some children who are sponsored through the organization. While on the trip, the group was able to meet the child they sponsor in the Dominican Republic as well as her family. The special moment was captured and incorporated into the music video.

 

"It was really important for us to shoot a music video for this song because we wanted to show the beauty and vibrancy of these children and their communities. This is a song about hope, perseverance, and love.” remarks Becky. "We want people to feel a sense of joy when they watch this video,” adds Joanna. “Ultimately, we would love to get as many children sponsored as possible and if this video inspires people to get involved with World Vision, then we've done our job.  Hopefully people will take away a desire to look at their own lives and see what areas they could be loving a little bigger.”

About Carter’s Chord:

Sisters Joanna, Emily and Becky spent their childhood immersed in the sounds of country music, specifically the Outlaw Movement, thanks to parents Carter and Barny Robertson, who toured and performed with Waylon Jennings during the height of that legendary period of country music. Their six-song EP is saturated with a similar attitude and style, music that stands just outside the boundaries, while remaining true to the roots and vibe that is country music. “Love A Little Bigger” is available on the EP titled, Wild Together.
