Rock and soul musician Cody Chestnutt and local blues hero Gary Clark Jr. teamed up to make this special tribute video to Chestnutt’s “Gunpowder on the Letter.” The video was released for Veteran’s Day.

“This song was inspired by a documentary I saw on veterans that had been traumatized by the act of war. The broken spirit and disillusionment expressed by these veterans, granted me access to both the spirit and voice needed to communicate the narrative,” Chestnutt said about the song in a note from his publicist.
