The Marcus King Band Share New "Goodbye Carolina" Video

The Marcus King Band have shared the video for “Goodbye Carolina,” off their recently released album, Carolina Confessions. The clip, directed by Tess Lafia and shot in Nashville, is the band’s first official music video. You can check it out above.

Said King of the song, "With all my material, I like the listener to draw their own conclusion as to the meaning of the lyrics; I want the song to be what it means to you. That being said, ‘Goodbye Carolina’ came to me in a daydream, an apparition of a dear songwriter friend we had lost only a year prior. I wrote from his perspective, and often feel the song was written through me. The lyrics simultaneously describe my need to break out and escape bad memories, loss and pain associated with my hometown, using the state as a personification of things I decided to leave behind.”

The Marcus King Band have also continued to announce new tour dates in support of Carolina Confessions, including a stop at Woodstock 50. You can check out the full itinerary below.
