When it comes to pure, boot stompin’ country music, Muscadine Bloodline is as good as it gets.
By remaining independent and able to make and release the music they want, the duo from Alabama has created a sound that is all their own. We’ve seen that sound perfectly displayed in their last two albums, Dispatch to 16th Ave. and Teenage Dixie.
But they haven’t taken their foot off the gas when it comes to releasing new music, and ol’ Charlie and Gary are back at it once again.
Earlier this week, they shared an official trailer for a song and music video called “Blood Feud,” teasing a bitter family feud similar to the likes of the infamous Hatfields & McCoys, depicting a brutal fight between two families that turns near fatal.
And today, the official music video (or short film) is out today.
Muscadine Bloodline introduces us to the Cochrans and the Pruitts, Alabama’s version of the Hatfields & McCoys.
They give a rundown of the situation in the description:
“I’m sure you’ve heard the story of the Hatfields and McCoys. The most famous family blood feud in history. Down here in Dixie we got a blood feud of our own, between the Cochrans and the Pruitts.
And ever since these boys came back home from fighting at the battle of Shiloh, they’ve been at each other’s throats for everything from fence posts to moonshine.
You know, the damned thing about being born into a family blood feud is that nobody really knows how it all started or why it’s still going on. Hell, I was kind of hoping we’d be the generation to end it all. And in a way, maybe we will..”
Needless to say, things get pretty ugly, as the nine minute long video depicts the bitter feud in modern times.
