Struthers plays guitar and sings with the band, with Angela Oudean on fiddle, Jason Norris on mandolin, Todd Grebe on guitar and P.J. George on bass, banjo and percussion.
They shot in Nashville at Historic Cedarwood, an early 19th century estate listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The video was directed by Dycee Wildman and filmed by Craig Hill, the same crew who shot and edited Nora Jane’s Willie video, the opening track of her self-titled debut album from 2010. Here’s a look at that one…
American Story is scheduled for a September 27 release, and the video is expected to hit at roughly the same time. The group will be touring in earnest starting in October, in support of the new CD. Find all their dates on the band’s official web site.
