Last week, Chris Janson teased a dark music video for his new cheatin’ murder ballad, “You, Me & The River,” featuring Eric Church.
The song was the only one on Janson’s brand new All In album that he didn’t at least co-write, as Chief himself wrote it.
The two’s vocals match perfectly, and you can hear darkness in the deep-cutting chorus:
“Hey buddy, hey buddy, ain’t that Mississippi muddy
And this time of year, she takes what you give her
So tonight I lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul and a secret to keep
Between you, me and the river”
Not to mention, Janson goes to town on the harmonica.
And now, we officially have the music video to go along with the song.
The black and white video mirrors the story of the song, with Janson and Church working to disposing of a body by a river, with the other buried in the woods.
Gotta love a good country murder ballad:
