Grant Farm, ‘Get in Line’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Boulder, Colo.-based Americana band Grant Farm are premiering the music video for their track “Get in Line” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play above to watch.
“Get in Line” opens Grant Farm’s newest concept album, Kiss the Ground, which explores the struggles and triumphs of working-class America. The band explains that the song is a “discussion about the necessity to conform in order to live the life you desire.”
“''The Man' knows all the ways to put you in your place,'” Grant Farm frontman Tyler "The Champ" Grant quotes to The Boot. “Everything has its price, metaphysically and in the material world.
"Additionally," he continues,"[it’s] a metaphor of asceticism: 'If salvation's what you’re looking for, then, brother, get in line.'”
Fans of Sturgill Simpson, the Tedeschi Trucks Band and rootsy folk and rock in general will find plenty to love in Grant Farm. The band is comprised of Grant, Adrian “Ace” Engfer, Sean “Magic” Macaulay and Kevin “Money” McHugh and was formed in 2009. In the years since, Grant Farm have built a dedicated fanbase while playing festivals across the country and sharing the stage with acts such as (and as varied as) Jerry Douglas and the String Cheese Incident.
Kiss the Ground was released in the summer of 2016. It is available via iTunes.
