Friday Nights are great nights, right? That’s what Bega-born, Wollongong-based singer-songwriter Corey Legge thinks on his new single, Friday Nights, for which Countrytown is premiering the music video today.

“What are you doing through? What are you trying to prove now?” Legge sings as he walks down a hill, playing the guitar alongside cows, setting up a tent and a campfire. “I know you’re going through low down and lonesome blues,” the Aussie country artist declares, singing that he’s “proud of you” as he thinks back to Friday Nights.

Later in the music video, Legge shakes hands with friends as they crack open some beers and plays a rousing guitar solo ready for stages. Friday Nights is an upbeat, uplifting new song from Legge that you need to add to your campfire-ready playlists. Check out the music video below.

First Nights is the first single from his upcoming fourth album, which is due for release in 2024. The music video was filmed and edited by Jay Seeney (Blacklist Productions), while the song was recorded at Kasey Chambers’ home studio of The Rabbit Hole Recording Studio on the Central Coast.

The latest track from Legge was engineered, produced and mixed by Nash Chambers, co-produced and co-engineered by Syd Green, and mastered by Matthew Gray (Matthew Gray Mastering).

In April 2022, Legge’s April Fool was named Countrytown’s Song Of The Day, which we called a “bittersweet alt-country song about the strength of love in the face of adversity and how easy it is to lose it all”.
