Said VEVO’s Doug McVehil (SVP, Music Programming, Talent & Operations): “VEVO is the home for premium music videos from every genre. While we have focused primarily on pop, hip hop and rock artists for LIFT, we’ve always wanted to throw our support behind country artists. Kacey is a remarkable young artist and was an obvious first choice. We’re excited to work with our partners at Universal Nashville to provide her with a LIFT.”
