EXCLUSIVE: Queer Country Artist Brian Falduto Creates Creative Visual for “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That”

By  | 

Emerging country-infused singer-songwriter Brian Falduto has done it yet again. Following the release of his single, “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That,” he has created a special visual for the boot-tappin’ tune.

The music video, directed by Falduto and styled by Brendan McCann, captures the vibrant atmosphere of Hill Country BBQ in New York City. Its genuine portrayal and narrative resonate with the audience. Younger and Uncoupled actor Dan Amboyer stars in the music video as the charming cheatin’ cowboy.

You can watch the official video for “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That” exclusively below.

I’m so excited for folks to see the music video for my cover of Dolly’s “Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That”. We had a lot of fun making that and I think you can see that in the final product. It has all the bite of the original song but it also has a touch of Brian in that it’s earnest, it’s modernized, and it’s queer. My intention was never to replace what Dolly’s given us because she is queen and her legacy will live on, untouched, forever. Much like my other music, it’s just meant to take something I grew up on and share it from my point of view because I feel that we need more points of view in country music,” says Brian.

Falduto and his team convey a message of inclusivity and representation in the arts in their music video. They do not just make a statement but celebrate the intrinsic value of these qualities. The narrative in the video presents universal experiences such as love, identity, and the quest for companionship. Labels and stereotypes are transcended in the narrative, where these experiences are celebrated.

Brian Falduto’s music is a testament to the power of storytelling and music to connect people and foster a deeper understanding of our shared humanity.

Brian released his first country music song, “Same Old Country Love Song” in 2023. The song was well-received and became an LGBTQ+ country music anthem.
