Award-winning singer-songwriter, musician and voice-over actor JASON CHARLES MILLER has unveiled a new music video for his latest single "Get Thee Behind Me," which features guest performances by Dug Pinnick (King's X), 'Cowboy' Eddie Long and Duane Betts (son of founding Allman Brothers guitarist Dickey Betts). The track is taken from MILLER's recent album IN THE WASTELAND via SONY which combines elements of outlaw country, Americana and Southern rock.
"When writing the lyrics for this album, I was really inspired by the struggle of good versus evil," shares MILLER. "Whether you're a Christian or not, most people are at least casually aware of the story of the Temptation of Christ, where Jesus wanders in the desert for 40 days and is tested and tempted by Satan. Taking more of a secular view of a very religious story, I decided to write the lyrics from Satan's point of view--how he kept getting more and more frustrated with Jesus and finally left. So of course I had to play Satan in the video, at least part of the time! The rest of the time I'm just myself, retracing the steps of what happened."
MILLER embarks August 20 on a headline month-long trek across the U.S. plus a few shows supporting the Allman Betts Band and an appearance at Muddy Roots Music Festival in Tennessee.
