Childers has always been known for his honest and sometimes controversial lyrics, but “In Your Love” is a bold new direction for the singer. The song tells the story of two men who fall in love while working in the mines, and it challenges traditional notions of what it means to be a country music star.
“I wanted to write a song about two people who were in love, and who were also from Appalachia,” Childers said in an interview. “I think it’s important to show that people from Appalachia come in all shapes and sizes, and that we’re not all just straight, white men.”
The video for “In Your Love” features gay actors Colton Haynes and James Scully as the two miners. The video has been praised for its positive portrayal of a gay love story, and it has helped to raise awareness of the issue of LGBTQ+ representation in country music.
“I’m glad that the video has been well-received,” Childers said. “I think it’s important for people to see themselves in art, and I hope that this video will help to make country music more inclusive.”
“Rustin’ in the Rain” is due out on September 8th, and it is sure to be one of the most talked-about albums of the year. Childers is a talented songwriter with a unique voice, and he is not afraid to take risks. “Rustin’ in the Rain” is a bold and ambitious album, and it is sure to challenge the status quo.
