Watch “Don’t Close Your Eyes (Ashamed)” By Crooked I Featuring Jonathan Hay, Truth Ali & Morgan McRae
This is part one of a five part video series that has been filmed in three cities: Louisville, Kentucky, Atlanta, Georgia and Chicago, Illinois. Producer Jonathan Hay had the idea to recreate the late Keith Whitley’s country classic from 1988 with the same title. Tragically, Whitley died from alcohol poisoning in 1989. In KXNG CROOKED’s verse he talks about alcoholism and getting sober. The video was shot in Kentucky, where the late country star once lived. The song also tackles child abuse, suicide and adoption.
Jonathan Hay’s The Urban Hitchcock LP drops October 5th.
