Video Premiere: Maybe April Navigates Heartache With Humor on 'Truth Is'

Rob Bondurant

Americana group Maybe April, made up of Katy DuBois and Alaina Stacey, turn to a healthy dose of denial and wit to get through a heartbreak on their breezy new song "Truth Is," from their forthcoming debut full-length album The Other Side (out on August 9).

In the clever song, Maybe April references two country music legends, Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson, to drive home their opposite-is-true philosophy.

"The grass is blue/ the sky is green/ Dolly Parton's really mean," the group sings. "Birds swim/ Fish fly/ Willie Nelson don't get high...And the truth is I'm over you."

The group says the tune is a reminder that sometime the only way to get over being spurned is to keep your sense of humor.

"We wrote this track with our friend Dean Fields. It's a fun, light-hearted, tongue-in-cheek song about not being able to get over someone - SO obvious that you have to make a joke about it," Maybe April tells Wide Open Country. "We think everyone has been in this position before...and we definitely have. Sometimes you gotta fake it 'til you make it."

Watch the video for "Truth Is" below.

Maybe April recently released the songs "The Other Side" and "Need You Now."
