“Justified” music video released by Cumberland River
Song was used on FX Network’s hit TV Drama JUSTIFIED
CUMBERLAND RIVER is proud to announce the new music video of their original song “Justified” from their Rural Rhythm Records album, THE LIFE WE LIVE. The video was filmed on location in the band’s hometown of Harlan, Kentucky by Anthony Ladd of Kneelindesign who also served as Video Producer. The song, “Justified,” along with five more original songs were featured on two episodes of the FX Network’s hit drama, JUSTIFIED (starring Timothy Olyphant) last season with more of their music set to be included in Season 3 premiering January 17.
THE LIFE WE LIVE has been honored in numerous year-end charts including: TOP 20 BEST OF BLUEGRASS – ENGINE 145; TOP 10 BLUGRASS ALBUMS OF 2011 (Keith Lawrence); and WNCW RADIO’S TOP 50 BLUEGRASS ALBUMS 2011. “This is the sound that contemporary bluegrass has been missing. Blue to the core and grass throughout. This is what bluegrass music should sound like and Cumberland River is flowing quite well in this regard,” said Bob Cherry of Cybergrass.
The “Justified” video includes the talents of CUMBERLAND RIVER members Jamie Dean (lead and banjo); Dustin Middleton (lead vocals and mandolin), Joey Jones (bass); Jamie Stewart (Dobro) and guest Andy Buckner. Since the filming, Brad Gulley has joined the band on guitar and lead & harmony vocals. Rural Rhythm Records recently released another music video, “Cold & Withered Heart” by the group that reached #1 numerous weeks on Yallwire’s Top Bluegrass Videos. It can be viewed the band’s official youtube channel, Cumberland-River.com, Rural Rhythm Records, Hope River Entertainment, and many more sites.
CUMBERLAND RIVER would like to thank numerous people for their contributions for the “Justified” music video including: the Harlan County Sherriff’s Department; Croley Forester (Marshall); Ben Cornett (walking on sidewalk); Jackie Cornett (being arrested); Deputy Bill Howard; Rex Coal for use of light plant and generators; and the City of Harlan, Kentucky.
