Wisconsin-based Southern rock band Michael Alexander + Big Whiskey just released their new music video for their cover of Lynryd Skynrd’s “Simple Man,” which appears on their debut album Sandman.
The track features Neal Middleton of Royal Bliss. Michael Alexander says “I have wanted to do a duet with my long time friend Neal Middleton of Royal Bliss and Simple Man seemed a perfect fit for the two of us considering we are both in that Southern Rock Vein musically. The video idea came from my good friend Hip Hop artist Josh Rip who produced and directed the video. The video concept for Simple Man is Simple… it focuses on my actual life, me with my family, playing music, putting my kids to bed, and shooting guns with my Fiance. It’s essentially a very true representation of what my life is like. I grew up in a town of around 500 people, we drank beer, shot guns and blew stuff up. I can relate to the song ‘Simple Man’ very well.”
Also featured on the track are Paul Zander on drums and percussion, Mike Huberty on bass, and Dain Di Mattia on guitar.
