LEXINGTON, Ky. — Tyler Childers’ has revealed a new, tripped-out music video for his latest single “All Your’n” from the artist’s highly anticipated new album, Country Squire out Aug. 2 via Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records.
Much like the video accompanying the album’s debut single “House Fire” the video for “All Your’n” features a bewildered an inebriated Casey Campbell, who in this episode wakes up amongst scattered piles of beer cans in a forest before taking a hit from a makeshift pipe constructed from a funnel and dryer venting, at which point the forest comes alive with cartoonish forest characters, mushrooms and other woodsy and Eastern Kentucky lore (such as the Laid Back Country Picker).
Campbell soon stumbles upon a wormhole nested inside a tree that abruptly throws him out of the forest and into a bar inhabited by different incarnations of Tyler Childers, from an eight-armed, gray-bearded bartender to a big-gutted trucker playing pool and even a cross-dressing, cheetah print suit wearing Tammy Chiggers, among others. Campbell and the assorted Childers’s are soon lured into an adjacent room by a band of cartoonish misfits representing a strung out fox, rooster and other characters that will adorn the cover art of Country Squire.
After dancing together in glee, Campbell hops onto the stage with the band before immediately toppling back over onto the dance floor and into reality, stooped over a rotting log in the woods with no recollection of how he got there.
Watch the official video for “All Your’n” below.
Produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, Country Squire was recorded at The Butcher Shoppe in Nashville and consists of nine new songs written by Childers including lead track, “House Fire.”
In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a number of world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin, banjo), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jaw harp, baritone).
Of the mission behind the album, Childers comments, “I hope that people in the area that I grew up in find something they can relate to. I hope that I’m doing my people justice and I hope that maybe someone from somewhere else can get a glimpse of the life of a Kentucky boy.”
In celebration of the release, Childers will embark on his extensive “Country Squire Run” headlining tour this fall including stops in the region at FloydFest on July 26 in Floyd, Va; Railbird Festival on Aug. 11 in Lexington and Kickin’ it on the Creek from Sept. 19-21 in Irvine.
