Big Kenny, ‘Wake Up’ – Video of the Week
Artist: Big Kenny
Video: 'Wake Up'
Why We Love It: We can't help but be inspired by this gorgeous new video, filmed in Canada during what was not just a video shoot but also a spiritual experience for the country star. "I wrote that song on a Sunday while driving across the Colorado Rockies," Big Kenny tells The Boot. "And on Saturday of that same week, me and four buddies flew up to Edmonton, Calgary. We drove four hours north and met up on top of that mountain where the film 'Unforgiven' was filmed, and the entire Blackfoot Confederacy drum and vocal tribe was there, along with a large portion of the Blood Indian tribe -- 50 or 60 people in full cultural dress. They delivered a headdress ceremony for me and gave me my blood name, Chief Mountain Boy, and prayed over me for about two hours."
