Cary Ann Hearst writes in her bio on Myspace that “those who hate country music hate her especially for forcing them to like country music.” Indeed, don’t expect to hear Taylor Swift when turning on her music. This South Carolina girl has an edge and roughness seldom heard in today’s country music scene. This week, on My Old Kentucky Blog, she premiered her video for the song “Hells Bells,” off her EP Are you Ready To Die Yet, out on Filter US Recordings. She appears in a silent movie-inspired setting as a joyful bride turned into a murderous betrayed wife. This song was recently featured in HBO’s True Blood; that’s how bloody it gets.
