The Kentucky Headhunters Give a History Lesson in ‘God Loves a Rolling Stone’ Video [Exclusive Premiere]
The Kentucky Headhunters transport viewers back in time with their new music video for "God Loves a Rolling Stone," premiering exclusively on Taste of Country. The clip highlights major moments in U.S. history including Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech, soldiers heading off to war, Woodstock and the stock market crash of 1929, among other events.
"The video for 'God Loves a Rolling Stone' is a film for all of humanity," Richard Young tells Taste of Country. "It depicts the struggles that many Americans have endured to keep our country's spirit great and, in the end, shining. I wrote the song for those who are less fortunate, and the part that God plays in all our lives. In his eyes, we're all the same. Enough said."
The song blends the band's love of many genres including rock, blues and country, featuring swampy electric guitar.
"People talk bad about a rolling stone, they say he's got nowhere to go / But he's got a home somewhere above the rainbow / 'Cause God loves a rolling stone," they sing at the track's opening.
The Kentucky Headhunters approach and interpret music from their life experiences and strive to be a band that tells the truth, as evidenced in their latest music video.
"We are who we are and that's what makes us what we have become," Fred Young says on the band's website. "From our life experiences and how we approach and interpret music is how we became a band that tells real life stories. We are a band of many styles: rock, blues, country, jazz, bluegrass, rockabilly, and other roots music. That is the foundation of our sound."
