When Willie's team at Acony Records called about "Gallows Pole" I got excited. I have always loved Willie's simple true approach to folk music. This version of the song was no exception. We did not have much to work with in regard to resources financially so we decided to put it all into something simple and beautiful. We went up into one of my favorite places outside of LA in Topanga Canyon and chased the sunset for 2 hours creating this intimate video.
