I’m fully convinced there isn’t an artist in country music as busy as Charley Crockett.
We’re talking about a guy who has already released 12 studio albums in only seven short years, and on top of that, he’s constantly in the studio making new music, and tours year in and year out as well.
Not to mention, the guy has one helluva back story, as he was a homeless street performer before his rise to fame, which is just one more reason we all love and have a ton of respect for the guy.
On top of that, his soulful, old school incorporation of country music, western swing, folk, soul and jazz sets him apart from all the others in the industry.
With that being said, the man is back at it again with a brand new music video for his song “Odessa,” off his The Man from Waco album that dropped back in September.
The music video for “Odessa” is made in that old school static-y tape recording setting, having us all reminiscing on the old family videos that our parents would make when we were kids.
And for the video, it shows Crockett, his band, and rest of his team in the studio recording the song at Bruce Robison’s analog studio, The Bunker, outside of Austin, Texas.
The song itself is a heartbreaker about how Crockett can’t get Odessa out of his mind, because he can’t forget about the woman he lost while there. And although it hurts him every time, he can’t stop thinking about it.
