Buckcherry Enlist Gretchen Wilson for ‘The Feeling Never Dies’ Video [Premiere]
Buckcherry have teamed up with one of country music's most hardcore talents for their new video, "The Feeling Never Dies."
The song comes from the deluxe edition of their current album, Rock 'N' Roll, which is now available via F-Bomb Records. According to singer Josh Todd, the collaboration has been a long time coming, and Gretchen Wilson was the obvious singer to fit the bill.
"I've always wanted to combine Buckcherry and country as a duet," he tells Taste of Country. "Gretchen killed this track and really brought out the passion in the song."
The "Redneck Woman" singer is one of the very few women in country music who could hold her own with the rough-around-the-edges rockers. "It was a lot of fun working on this project with Buckcherry!" she exclaims. "I have been a fan ever since I heard the song 'Crazy Bitch.' Hmm… wonder what made them think of me for this duet? LOL."
She also joined them to shoot the brand-new video for the song, which is premiering exclusively with Taste of Country. The track blends Buckcherry's rough-hewn rock with a little bit of country twang for a sound that's reminiscent of the country side of the Rolling Stones, but with a more modern edge, and the video underscores that with a gritty black-and-white approach that suits the song well.
The clip shows Buckcherry performing the song on a no-frills stage, while Wilson contributes her parts during a separate vocal session, inter-cutting the footage for a unique visual approach.
The deluxe edition of Rock 'N' Roll is available for download at iTunes, and Buckcherry will be touring this year to promote the collection. Check out those tour dates below.
