When it came time to film his next music video, Shooter Jennings decided to be on location throughout many areas in Kentucky. Filming took place throughout Greensburg, Campbellsville, before concluding in Nicholasville Tuesday night.
Production for the music video for “The Real Me” was provided by Kentucky filmmakers Judd Films. They are currently working with Shooter Jennings on the packaging and marketing of his newest album, “Family Man.”
Tuesday’s taping in Nicholasville, Kentucky featured actors in period wear reminiscent of “O Brother Where Art Thou.” The film location was at a former church in the country that was used for young black women as a refugee camp during the Civil War. It was established by John G. Fee, who also founded Berea College.
Shooter Jennings, along with several actors, portrays a church scene that also features snakes and an American Idol contestant. Be on the lookout for Bucky Covington in the back row. Local band Fifth on the Floor also provide cameos in the music video.
Shooter Jennings new album, “Family Man,” is set to be released in the next couple of months. Be sure to check out www.shooterjennings.com
