A Thousand Horses shows its "Southernality" via video
Thursday, April 7, 2016
– A Thousand Horses put out a new video for its latest single, "Southernality."
The video for the title track, which recently hit country radio, was directed by
Shaun Silva. He filmed scenes from A Thousand Horses' performances throughout their current stint opening on Jason Aldean's We Were Here Tour. The end result also features the band in front of a green screen in Nashville.
"This was a really fun shoot since we got to film most of it in a concert setting," said front man Michael Hobby. "Our fans relate to the message of this song and we love getting to show our Southern personalities when we perform."
A Thousand Horses saw their first single "Smoke" hit the top of both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay Charts.
