Wynonna Judd, along with her band the Big Noise, released her first music video in 14 years, “Keeps Me Alive."
The project also features a special appearance by American guitarist Derek Trucks and is a visually captivating video shot at the historic Oaklands Mansion in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Directed by Todd Cassetty of HiFi Fusion, Judd's music video was released over the weekend, June 3, and premiered on AMC's after The Son which stars Pierce Brosnan. “Keeps Me Alive" is featured on Judd's 2016 album Wynonna and the Big Noise and is a collaborative project with her husband Cactus Moser.

Considerably one of the most inspiring songs on the record, Judd's new video takes inspiration from visually compelling music videos such as Johnny Cash's “Hurt". The country singer also describes the tune as the album's overarching theme. “It's just me letting it go, just being myself," Judd says. “It's the fiber of my being. It's being in a darkness that is so dark that your soul cries out to get relief. Because of where I've been and the hell I've been through and just the primal, guttural cry with which I have shed many a tear over children, death, divorce, being in the music business for 37 years as part of my journey, I think this record is my musical coming-out party where I'm just letting everything come to the surface."
Along with an appearance by slide-guitarist Derek Trucks', the record also includes special guests Jason Isbell and Trucks' wife, blues singer Susan Tedeschi. You can find Wynonna and her band the Big Noise at Marty Stuart's annual Late Night Jam at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday night, June 7.
