I first heard this song played by Jim Olbon at Nashville’s very own Foo Bar in the summer of 2012, and through much searching, discovered it was a beautifully melancholic old tune by Hank Snow called Yellow Roses.
I immediately set out to record my take on it and recruited pedal steel extraordinaire Tony Paoletta. For the video I wanted to try something a little different than what I had done in the past. Something a little more with a story behind it.
I asked my brilliant photographer friend Amy Harris if she would be interested in helping me with a video. She said “no”! After asking her 10 more times, she finally, acquiesced and we set out to make the video. We brought in resident model Dolci Key and thus the video was born!
