Neilson Hubbard has released the music video for Cumberland Island, the title track for his new album of the same name.

Commenting on the inspiration behind the track Hubbard says, “Cumberland Island is about the day my wife and I spent on that island in Georgia with the burned Carnegie mansion ruins and the wild horses that have survived there for centuries. It is a calling out to remember that place in our lives of passion, fierceness, and love. To “come away” with those memories. We tried to match that emotion with the video…. it’s a single shot of a performance style with a layering of blowing trees and slow motion shadows waving and beckoning the listener and viewer to remember that place.”

Recorded in less than a week, Cumberland Island (released on 19th October 2018), is produced by Hubbard with Ben Glover. The album features leading Nashville session players, including Will Kimbrough, Joshua Britt, Eamon McLoughlin and Dean Marold.
