Gentle green river, be kind… from behind the woods you’ll soon be seen…
When Dan Sartain said he’d work with Free People to create a music video, we were so very excited. Dan is a gritty yet playful and magical songwriter from Birmingham, AL, and the opportunity to work with him “at home” became something out of a dream or classic rock song. The backwoods between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa served us well. We made peace with mother nature and unsettled morning skies before accessing a sleepy portion of the Cahaba River, where Dan and a brood of gorgeous ladies – some of whom work at our local Birmingham store – accompanied us on the water in inner-tubes and good fun.
Thank you to all involved for a day straight out of our dreams.
