Oak & Eden Presents "Round Prairie Road"

A music video by Jamestown Revival

In light of Oak & Eden’s limited batch of Jamestown Revival’s signature whiskey ‘Round Prairie Rye’, Jamestown performs Round Prairie Road live on that very road. Jamestown changed the original lyrics from "spent too much time drinking brandy and wine" to "Round Prairie Rye" for this performance and the bottle at the end is one of the first production bottles.

Director Statement

When Brad approached me with this idea, I knew that with the nature of the song, we had to keep this as simple and as authentic as possible. Naturally, we landed on a one-take but how do we time a one-take with a live performance, while recording audio, and shooting wide to close from the back of an ATV? We decided to record the song from the back of my Subaru to be as true to the natural environment as possible. That way we could be quiet and not have the hum of an ATV engine in the background. We then blasted that live performance from a speaker on the ATV for Jamestown to lip sing over. If you listen closely you can hear some chunked guitar notes and imperfections throughout the song - We call that "seasoning" and left it to help with the simplistic approach.
