"Leaving Lee County" Video debut

The song "Leaving Lee County" was written by Chad Trout & Stacy Hogan. "It was originally an idea that turned into a metaphor about a painful relationship." Being a very personal subject and lyric, Chad kept the idea on the shelf for over two years. " All I had was a melody and some lyrics. Stacy Hogan, quickly put music to it and a song was born. "The first time I heard it played back. I thought... how raw!! I thought it was perfect with just an acoustic guitar, piano and vocals." Trout collaborated with friend/director, Mike Quinones "We literally put this video together in a matter of two days with very little budget" Then Seth Graves did an amazing job with editing. This video is part of a EP album project that Chad and his Brother Travis are releasing digitally SOON!
