NASHVILLE, TENN. (September 13, 2018) — Black River Entertainment songwriter/artist Abby Anderson premieres her first music video for her debut single, “Make Him Wait” exclusively on CMT, today (9/13). This evening, Anderson joins Brett Eldredge and Devin Dawson as they kick off the fall leg of The Long Way Tour in Denver, CO.

At Country radio now, the “Make Him Wait” music video will air on 6:25 am EST beginning today and is available to view online at CMT.com. One of CMT’s Next Women of Country for 2018 and a CMT Listen Up Artist - #18for2018, Anderson recently visited CMT Radio where she sat down and with Cody Alan and dished about her first single to Country radio.

Shot in Nashville, TN, director Chris Hicky, captured the value of self-worth that is the essence of the message found in Anderson’s debut single “Make Him Wait.” Hand-picked by Anderson, the video features women of all ages, showcasing the song’s diverse message that people hold a value that is inherently undeniable. Adding to the significance of the video, Anderson selected a fan to feature in her first music video.

“My hope is that “Make Him Wait” is a universal message that speaks to people of all ages.” Anderson continues, “This is a song about trusting your worth, with someone worth your trust. It’s about dating someone who understands your worth and treats you accordingly. I’m a strong believer that you set the tone of any relationship. When you set the standards, and you set them high, people tend to rise to the occasion.”

Tonight, Anderson joi­­­ns Eldredge and Dawson on The Long Way Tour in Denver, CO at the Bellco Theatre. The Long Way Tour will also make stops in Council Bluffs, IA and Bonner Springs, KS during opening weekend. For additional dates and information on tickets, please visit abbyandersonmusic.com.
