I liked it a lot.

I think the others here made good suggestions especially about the fast disolve transitions. You can use a really short disolve and it's barely noticable but it's a 'softer' cut.

The one that I might make is to expand on the church thing or on her.

There's only one or two shots where she isn't singing. Perhaps cast her as a character in the song.

I need to go back and listen to the words to the song but I imagine there was a reason for it and perhaps you can chose a lower pace interlude in the song and have a lingering exterior CU shot of her in a window looking out.

Perhaps at a moment of a good line in the song she can have some emotional reaction and place her hand against the glass....

Hey, great work! How did you get the warmth?

Also, the only thing I would do is cut less - dissolve more. However, I think that dissolving on certain spots would make more going from wide to closeups.

Overall 8 out of 9 stars! If you tweak it...I'll give you 9! If you get it on one of those country music channels...10!
