Cole Washburn Releases The Widow

cole washburnby Walter Price


Folk based country music artist and a favorite of our’s round here Cole Washburn has released the long anticipated video for “The Widow” from his award winning EP Traveler’s Moon (Gravity Nashville).

The hauntingly subtle and profound clip tells a fact rich Civil War tale as Washburn told me not long ago, “The Widow I knew was going to be a challenge from the start.  I grew up in Franklin, TN which is the home of the Civil Wars “Battle of Franklin”  Not far from where I lived was the Plantation home of Carrie McGavock who, with the help of her husband John, helped build one of the largest private Confederate cemeteries in the nation.  The Widow is basically her story and the chance for the soldiers to pay their respects to the one who “gave them a restful home”.

Check out the Michael Davies directed video below.
