THE BAND PERRY "GENTLE ON MY MIND" (2015)
OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO.
In 2014, the documentary film Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me was released, chronicling the life and career of iconic American country music artist Glen Campbell. For the film's soundtrack, The Band Perry recorded Campbell's classic song "Gentle On My Mind", and Absorb. was commissioned to build the official music video and web aesthetics for the song, which ultimately won the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Country Duo / Group Performance. To date, the video has accrued over 2 million views on VEVO.
Narrative filming was done over three adventure-filled days in Death Valley, CA with the excellent Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games, Lone Survivor, Vikings) in the role of the song's freewheeling journeyman. Shelley Hennig (Justified, Unfriended) beautifully portrayed the role of the focus of the journeyman's affection.
The experience of making this vid was one of the most extraordinary creative endeavors of our lives!
