OUTLAW ROCK ARTIST
REVEALS MUSIC VIDEO FOR
“LIFE I LEAD”
DEBUT ALBUM ‘HEAD FULL OF MONSTERS’ OUT NOW
VIA STRUGGLE JENNINGS ANGELS & OUTLAWS RECORD LABEL
Nashville-based singer-songwriter and musician J.D. HUGGINS showcases his vibrant combination of Southern blues and dirty alternative rock on the single “Life I Lead” taken from his debut solo album HEAD FULL OF MONSTERS released in July via Struggle Jennings’ Angels & Outlaws record label. Today, August 3, J.D. has revealed a music video for the track which was recorded in Ashland City, TN with director Alisa Daglio (Body Count, Yelawolf). Watch it streaming below or directly via YouTube HERE.
“I really wanted to do a music video with a story line and have family and friends play the roles,” shares J.D. “I always thought that would be fun and also rewarding for them to experience how it worked and get the opportunity to be involved. In the ‘Life I Lead’ music video I was able to have my niece, Jaylee Grace, and my son, Owen in it. I also had my brother in-law and some dear friends come be a part of it.”
He further went on to share background on the video’s location and concept stating: “We shot this music video on an old property out in Ashland City, TN. The property had the same vibe as my upbringing in the Appalachians mountains, making it the perfect spot to shoot a song about that region. The details of the video aren’t a reflection of my childhood but more or less a dark twist on how it can be back in the mountains. I have always loved dark story lines and unexpected twists in music videos and movies, so this seemed like a perfect song to accomplish that.”
HEAD FULL OF MONSTERS is available to stream/download now across all digital platforms at https://onerpm.link/headfullofmonsters.
HUGGINS was raised in the Appalachian Mountains in a small town in Georgia where he spent his time fishing, hunting, camping and teaching himself how to play the guitar. Born into a musical family, he began songwriting at an early age taking influence from his surroundings. He then moved to Nashville to front the southern rock band Heathen Sons who released two full-length albums and an EP and received notoriety for their single “Temporary Queen” which was featured on the hit ABC television show “Blood & Oil.” Before disbanding in 2019, the band was on the road performing with acts including Whiskey Myers, Turnpike Troubadours, The Cadillac Three, Nikki Lane, Will Hoge, Leah Blevins and Goodbye June as well as appearing at Whiskey Jam and SXSW.
