Until recently, the last time Tyler Childers posted on Instagram was on September 18, 2020. That post was made to showcase his album Long Violent History. The album went on to claim the sixth spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and peaked at the 45th spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

All of the net proceeds from Long Violent History were donated to the Hickman Holler Appalachian Relief Fund.

After two years of silence, Childers returned to social media on September 2 of this year. He posted a 15-second preview of what fans assumed to be a music video.

The video didn’t include a caption. But Childers’ fans and fellow artists could tell it was hinting at something big.

A few days later, Childers posted a two-minute trailer for the music video on YouTube and social media.
