New Artist Cam Is ‘Burning’ Up The Charts…And The Opry Stage

Don’t let the ever-present yellow color scheme fool you. There’s some serious angst going on behind that bright hue for Cam, the California native who is steadily establishing herself as one of country music’s most promising talents. Her latest single “Burning House” is inching toward the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and she’s been wowing audiences with the song onstage. Earlier this week, she made her Good Morning America debut, with an elegant performance of the smoldering breakup ballad.

“Burning House” was inspired by a troubling dream the singer had after the end of a relationship.

“It’s a really vulnerable song because it comes from a real place. I didn’t handle the end of a relationship very well. I wanted to apologize for that. It was like guilt around it,” Cam told Rolling Stone Country prior to this week’s ACM Honors ceremony in Nashville.

“It’s a tough song, because there is no Disney movie for when you love someone a lot and they’re almost perfect, but they’re not. They’re not a villain, but they’re not Prince Charming. So what do you do with all that love? It comes out in crazy dreams of burning houses,” she says.

The singer, one of Rolling Stone Country‘s Artists You Need to Know, acknowledges the song has resonated intimately with many listeners. Often, they approach her in search of physical contact. “They want a hug. And, man, I want a hug! So it’s really nice. On a personal level it means a lot,” Cam says.

Ultimately, though, she believes the success of “Burning House” comes from embracing the awkward. “If you’re being so honest that it makes you a little uncomfortable, you’re probably saying something that people need to hear.”

Currently on the road, Cam will play a string of shows with Little Big Town and open for Chris Young during his Nashville homecoming concert on September 30th.
