Aubrie Sellers refuses to fit the mold of your average female country musician — and in an exclusive look at the making of the “Sit Here and Cry” music video, the singer proves she has no plans to deviate anytime soon.
“When I was thinking of video ideas for this song, I wanted it to reflect the energy of the music and express the big eye roll that ‘Sit Here and Cry’ is,” Sellers, 25, explained to PEOPLE exclusively. “I had a very specific visual vision for it, and when I saw Sam Siske’s reel I knew he was going to get it.”
She credits Siske for the appearance of revved-up two-wheelers in the clip. “My friend Natalie came out and brought a couple girlfriends who ride, and we had a lot of fun — so much fun I got my motorcycle license afterwards.”
In sticking with the theme and lyrics of the song, Sellers hopes to encourage women around the world who refuse to succumb to heartache.
“There was a lot of girl power on set,” Sellers continued. “I wanted to make a video for the girls who roll their eyes at the thought of being devastated by somebody who obviously wasn’t worth it.”
The daughter of country legend Lee Ann Womack (she appeared in her mom’s video for “I Hope You Dance,” many moons ago), Sellers is known for her “garage country” sound. She often finds herself fighting the traditional side of her genre for the opportunity to showcase her rebellious spirit.
“I prefer to create friction,” Sellers says on her website. “Because if you’re not pushing buttons, you’re just making something pleasant; it’s probably been done before and it’s not making anyone feel anything.”
