Austin singer-songwriter Carson McHone has been working on a new album in Nashville with former Austinite Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Heartless Bastards, Lee Ann Womack) producing. In the meantime, she’s just released a striking new video for the song “How ’Bout It,” which was featured on her 2015 full-length debut “Goodluck Man.”
The no-frills, homespun production was cut live with Project ATX6 director Chris Brecht. It features McHone and her bandmate Sam Kossler sitting side-by-side on a piano bench, him playing the keys while she sings.
McHone, who headlined a Saturday show at the White Horse this past weekend, hits the road Thursday for a two-week run through the South. She’ll be back July 14 for an early-evening set at 3Ten before Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit play the first of three nights upstairs at ACL Live. Later this year, she’ll be playing the first weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Zilker Park.
