Brett Myers, a member of the 2008 Phillies World Series team, released a new music video, the first in his career as a country singer.
Myers has transitioned into a career as a country music singer. He released his first studio album in 2015 titled “Backwoods Rebel”. Now he has his first music video as well.
Myers’ new song, “Good Time”, is from his newest album, “Home Brewed” which is available for pre-order Monday.
Myers told CSN Philly back in February about how he wants his music to be different from the standard pop country song:

"“They kill it, don’t get me wrong,” Myers said this week in a phone interview with CSNPhilly.com. “But it’s not my cup of tea. Every song is about a girl and sitting on a tailgate. I think it is pop country that is out now. Country music is about songwriting and storytelling. I see these guys like Luke Bryan singing these songs, and I see they have six guys write the song. I mean, does it really take six guys to write a song?“That frustrates me because I am a singer and songwriter. I live in this world. I don’t live in their fairytale world that they are singing about.“I think a lot of people want to listen to their music because it takes them away from their everyday life. But I want to write about everyday life stuff. I can only write about what I know and what I’ve seen. I don’t feel like this country music stuff we listen to today really grasps real-life stuff like country music is supposed to be.”"
This video is really all about everyday life to Myers. It features beer, trucks, girls, and all-around what life is like for the standard “Backwoods Rebel”.
