Cam Releases New Single, 'Diane,' Inspired by Classic Dolly Parton Song

October 27, 2017

Cam has released the debut single, "Diane," from her upcoming sophomore album due out in 2018. The country singer's newest track was inspired by a classic country hit bringing fans an upbeat twist to tell the tale of love and regret.

Cam shares, “‘Diane’ is my response to Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene.’  It’s the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get. The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married.  Because everyone should be able to decide their own path in life, based on the truth. Women especially should do this for each other, since our self-worth can still be so wrapped up in our partners.  And in true country fashion, I’ve set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all.”

Cam's new apologetic tune sends a very empowering message to women all while being honest. "Diane" was co-written by Cam, Jeff Bhasker, and Tyler Johnson which is the same team to have written her GRAMMY nominated and No.1 smash, "Burning House."
