Caitlin Rose Turns Out to Be “Only a Clown”

Caitlin Rose does a convincing job of getting herself arrested in the new video for “Only a Clown.” You can get away with a lot in Music City, but stealing a karaoke bar’s disco ball … not recommended. Earlier in the night things were going so well. Using an old VHS tape recorder to match her song’s nostalgic-feeling country rock, Rose and friends sing and dance and smoke cigarettes before driving off with a shimmering piece of party plunder. That’s when she discovers people laugh hardest at a clown after he’s gone. Meanwhile her laid-back voice never comes close to pushing any envelopes, staying composed but vibrant as it bounces off sunset-tinged electric guitar riffs.
