Penned by Copperline frontman Brad Christmas, Lucinda is a touching tribute to the much-loved daughter he lost all too soon. 

Since its release in February, the song has received widespread national airplay, reaching #37 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart and has garnered over 100,000k streams on Spotify.

“This is probably the most deeply personal song I’ve ever written,” Brad said at the time of release. “A gift to my little girl whose stay in this world was all too brief, but still meant the world to us. A reminder to her that she’ll always be in our hearts.”

The music video, premiering today exclusively on Countrytown, was shot by film maker Jackson Samuel and stars actor Ali Gallagher and her partner Michael Clark. The final product is a moving exploration of love, loss, friendship and hope, all set in a pristine South Coast backdrop.

Brad added, “This is a really special song to me, and I really wanted the film clip to capture the emotion in it. Ali, Michael and Jackson did such an amazing job of bringing it to life. They exceeded all my expectations. I’m really proud of what we were able to make. It’s a fitting tribute to the song and Lucinda.”
