This 8-piece Americana band from Louisville KY will be filming a professional music video for their new single “When I Go.”

WE DID IT! WE HIT OUR GOAL AND WE STILL HAVE TIME LEFT! EVERY DOLLAR WE RAISE OVER $4000 WILL GO TO HELPING US FINISH THE ALBUM!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi y’all, we are Joel T. Henderson & the Forty-Gallon Baptists.

On August 4th we hung out at Kevin Ratterman’s La La Land studio to record the original song “When I Go.” We dig it and think others will, too. It’s about being yourself…about being comfortable in your own skin – and your own clothes – until the very end.

Have a listen below, and then download it for FREE here.

The music industry doesn't work the way it used to. These days it takes a village – great artists AND great fans to make music and get it heard. Just like the song preaches, we've gotta be ourselves and take charge of our own destiny. But it’s not as simple as just recording some songs and getting them on the radio. This is the age of going viral. In our Kickstarter promotional video you'll see clips of us and some friends having fun, but we can’t wait to make a full, high-quality music video for this single.

We know that our music belongs to our fans just as much as it belongs to us. Projects like this cost money…and a lot of it. So we’re asking for your help. Please chip in just a few dollars to help us reach our $4,000 Kickstarter goal.

Any money raised over the goal will go toward finishing our album – an extra $15,000 would really help us make something special. Please give what you can, and if you like what we’re doing, we ask that you share our promotional video and campaign with everyone you know.

On behalf of the Forty-Gallon Baptists, we raise our cup to your generosity. Thank you for helping us go our own way.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks and challenges for this project are fairly limited. The biggest risk is that we may not be able to produce the high-quality video if we do not meet our goal.

Other challenges include scheduling conflicts, inclement weather, and any on-set technical issues. That being said, we will be working with a professional production company to make this video happen, and we feel confident that any challenges will be met with the same quality as the productions for which they are known.
