Video: The Avett Brothers “We Americans”

From the opening line: “I grew up with reverence for the red, white and blue,” this song sets out to explore American history and what it means to be an American today.  The subject is handled with intelligence and sensitivity and is well supported by an atmospheric video that features paintings by Jason Mitcham.  ‘We Americans’ is taken from the recent album, ‘Closer Than Together’, which was their most political and socially-aware record to date.  Sit back and absorb this beautiful, thought-provoking song for America.
