Kory Caudill, ‘Kentucky Creekwater’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Keyboardist and composer Kory Caudill is premiering the music video for his instrumental track “Kentucky Creekwater” exclusively for readers of The Boot.
On the bluesy, Southern rock-tinged track, Caudill doesn’t even need words to convey exactly what "Kentucky Creekwater" is about. Against touches of swampy electric organ and bluesy chord progressions, Caudill’s top-notch take on the keys makes for a track that’s perfect for enjoying in the back of a honky-tonk, perhaps while sneaking a little nip of ‘shine.
Caudill doesn’t work as a solo artist much in the country world, but fans of the genre may recognize his name if they've seen Justin Moore on tour. Caudill has long served as Moore’s touring keyboardist, lending a taste of his own musical virtuosity to the backdrop of Moore’s good ol’ boy tunes.
A piano player since he was in diapers, Caudill made his debut with the Kentucky Opry at the age of four. Describing his style as “Yanni meets Eastern Kentucky,” Caudill graduated with a music degree from Nashville's Belmont University and, in addition to his gig with Moore, is a sought-after studio pianist. The musician is currently signed to Naxos USA’s Suite 28 Records, a classical label, as their flagship artist.
"Kentucky Creekwater" appears on Tree of Life, Caudill's 2015 album. The project is available for download on iTunes.
