The video for "Redneck Roots" features the Dirt Rock Empire
label roster enjoying a day of backyard wrestling with The Lacs
members Clay "Uncle Snap" Sharpe and Brian "Rooster
" King as wrestling managers. There is plenty of action and laughter as these southern country boys take backyard wrestling to a whole new level with their own backwoods twist.
"Sitting around reminiscing and telling stories about what it was like growing up is what inspired 'Redneck Roots' and gave us this idea for a wild backyard wrestling video. It's the type of song that brings a bit of fun and energy to the new album," said Clay Sharpe. "We just had a lot of fun talking about the good ol' days and how it made us who we are today."
"It pretty much self describes us and who we are in a fun kinda way. We are just some simple ordinary country boys from Georgia," King adds. "Throughout life, we all learn lessons. In our neck of the woods, the lessons may be a bit unconventional and sometimes they end up someone doing something crazy like in our new video."
"Redneck Roots" is the latest single from the Lacs' newest album, "Rise and Shine", released in October via their own Dirt Rock Empire
label. The album is a 12-pack of country-infused anthems that undoubtedly will become the soundtrack for country lovers everywhere, whether you're poppin' a cold beer behind a fishing line or spinning tires on a backroad, there's nothing like a little shine in your speaker.
