(Nashville, Tenn.– June 17, 2022) Outlaw Country band, Nashvillains, has released an official music video for their song, “Chickasaw Bayou” – out now here! The visual is the second official music video to be released from the tracklist of their debut concept album, Tumbling Down, which was released in early March and received critical acclaim. “Chickasaw Bayou” first premiered on Country Rebel and is now out for the masses.
Filmed in Music City and directed by Brian Vaughn, “Chickasaw Bayou” uses gliding camera angles to give a visual to the catchy prison break track. The video is a transitional piece in the storyline of the album as it portrays the main character breaking free from what could have been his ending in a jail cell to chase the hope of being with his love once again – his motivation being to lay a rose at her graveside. Ultimately, “Chickasaw Bayou” encompasses all the things that every jail-inspired song needs – orange jumpsuits, an ingenious escape, the possibility of freedom, and three Nashvillain guitarists.
Brett Boyett comments on the making of the video, “Brian did an amazing job putting the end product together. He captured our idea perfectly and made our lyrics come to life. The video makes you feel like you’ve been sentenced to life behind bars without the possibility of parole. There’s no maximum-security prison that can hold the Nashvillains.”
A jailbreak video with a cliffhanger, this video differs drastically from Nashvillains’ most recent music video release, “There to Catch Me.” Directed by Bethany Ashton Wolfe, “There too Catch Me” will appear in several film festivals across the country this year. Along with the two videos, Nashvillains’ album Tumbling Down is available on all platforms here.
Signed to Fate Entertainment, Nashvillains’ inception stemmed from the industry veterans’ and musicians’ shared love of country music and rock and roll. Each member has been successful in their own right before coming together for this unique project. Collectively, they have written and produced music for feature films, television shows, and major artists like The Chicks, Keith Urban, Cassadee Pope, James Taylor, Lauren Alaina, and Lauren Alaina, among others.
Band members Brett Boyett and Scott Lindsey first met in a writing session where they shared a commonality on a creative vision; that the country music spectrum was in dire need of a rock meets outlaw country presence that flirts with sonic experimentation. Having been familiar with Troy Johnson through the songwriting community, Boyett pinned Troy Johnson and his gritty vocals as a potential third member when he learned that Lindsey shared his publishing company with the sought-after writer; the rest was history.
The newly formed group looks to create a fresh musical landscape by blurring lines between genres, bending the rules of convention, and expanding country music. The sonic landscape of the Nashvillains is accomplished by using traditional instrumentation with creative modern programming while emphasizing the dramatic and untold stories rarely touched upon by today’s popular country music.
