Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch take a weekend road trip in the music video for their new song "The Weekend," the opening track on the new Dave Rawlings Machine album "Nashville Obsolete," available now.
The video was shot on a breakneck road trip from Nashville to California. "It was the craziest idea" says Rawlings,"to document a weekend trip from Music City to the beach and back". The opening scene shows Rawlngs and Welch packing up the '65 Chevy Impala they first toured in. West- coast bound, outfitted in Nudie Suits and armed with guitars and a beach blanket, the story unfolds over the course of 'The Weekend'. The trip is real, the breakdown is real, the mechanic is real, unplanned, but evidence that Dave Rawlings Machine will go wherever the road leads them.
