Bri Bagwell

1.  What’s new and exciting in the world of Bri Bagwell? First of all, quarantine made me a brunette because I decided to save the salon cash and grow my hair out au naturale for a bit.  News alert!  It’s not bright blonde without the bleach.  Also, my music video for “As Soon As You” was on CMT for nine weeks.  I can’t believe I’m typing that – we did the music video during quarantine with one camera man, a very limited team (in masks), clothes/props I ordered from Amazon (because the stores were all closed), and then the song
