Dale Ann Bradley Announces
New Music Video for
“Come Home Good Boy”
From Upcoming Album
Somewhere South of Crazy
The genesis for Dale Ann Bradley‘s first single from her forthcoming album Somewhere South of Crazy (out on Compass Records August 30th) was a childhood memory of a young neighbor who did not return from the Vietnam War. “Come Home Good Boy,” is poignant, earnest and universal prayer for soldiers and their loved ones from any war both past and present. For the music video, which just wrapped initial filming last week, Bradley and Compass Records recruited help from The Fort Campbell Wives Club, the Army Wives Network, Go Army Wives – and employed social media to gather soldiers’ photos from all over the country and from every decade of war. Many of the photos are from soldiers stationed at or deployed out of Fort Campbell, located in Dale Ann’s home state of Kentucky.
The performance footage featuring Bradley, Sierra Hull and Steve Gulley, was shot at Carnton Plantation in Franklin, TN, a historic home that served as an Army hospital during The Civil War. Produced by Compass Records and Veritas Media Group and directed by Joseph Spence, the song is a mother’s message to her young soldier son, wishing for his safe return home, “come home good boy/ you ain’t playing anymore/do the best that you can/to make it through real war.” The video will be released at the end of August. Dale Ann’s last music video for “Don’t Turn Your Back” the title track from her last album, was chosen as a fan favorite on CMT Pure.
