The Cadillac Three frontman Jaren Johnston shares the spotlight with his wife Evyn in the band’s new video for “White Lightning” and it’s a fitting role, as Johnson wrote the song about his wife.
The music video for the Southern rock love ballad begins with Johnston getting into his truck and slamming the door to which a photo of he and his wife falls to the passenger seat.
He looks at the photo and then begins to sing the opening lines of the song while driving and you instantly get the feeling you’re with him as he’s writing the song.
The three-minute clip then flashes forward to Johnston returning home to see his wife in their kitchen as the camera pans to photos of them both on their refrigerator. The stripped-down feel of the song comes to the forefront as Johnston is found upstairs writing the song as pictures of he and his wife flash on the screen as he sings, “That’s what love is supposed to feel like.”
