Jasper, Georgia native Jacob Bryant has currently hit seven million views for his current radio single “Pour Whiskey On My Grave” music video. Although a new name and face within mainstream radio, Bryant has a pretty big fan base. He carries his outlaw attitude like a badge of honor. What you see is what you get with Bryant and well, country music fans are loving it.
“Pour Whiskey On My Grave” is southern rock in its entirety. It’s gritty and edgy. It hits hard. It puts a party anthem spin on death.
“When I’m gone don’t bring me pretty flowers and don’t sit and cry for me at my tombstone. Come and visit me in the midnight hours..with your party on”
Bryant is front and center in the black and white music video. His personality shines through like moonlight. The track although, slightly daunting is lively and vivid all at the same time. Bryant resonates hard work and dedication. He isn’t one to half-ass anything, including a good country song. His bad boy persona mixed with these twangy southern vocals gives him room to stand out and stand firm.
Bryant isn’t one to sing a track unless he can relate. “Pour Whiskey On My Grave” reminds Bryant of his mother’s passing. He would visit his mother’s grave toting several beers in hand. It’s a strong powerful track and one Bryant is passionate about.
You see, country music is craving artists like Bryant. Authenticity is much needed and listeners are practically begging for it.
