Charley Crockett Shares ‘Lily My Dear’ Video
Charley Crockett shared the video for “Lily My Dear.” The song appears on Crockett’s 2020 album, Welcome To Hard Times.
Crockett spoke about “Lily My Dear” in a statement. Read it below:
I was sitting in front of a little club in El Campo, TX last year messin’ around on my banjo, Dolores. I had this lick I was pickin’ and a melody came to me. I kept playing it round and round and my friends were with me so we all just started throwing lyrics at the wall to see what would stick. I kept the ones that I like the best. It’s an old story. The best ones always are. When you write something that feels like it’s 150 years old it’s a good feeling. The banjo will give one to me every now and again if I respect it. It’s one of my favorite tunes.
Filmed by Kevin Hamm with audio from David Wilson, Crockett created the visual for “Lily My Dear” — an ode to classic country TV performances with legends like George Jones — at Sam’s Town Point in Austin, Texas. The video sees Crockett performing the vocals live, singing along with the original track.
