John Hillcoat Directs Music Video for Unreleased Johnny Cash Recording “She Used To Love Me A Lot”
Filmed over the course of a month across the U.S., Hilllcoat’s video provides an undaunted look at the themes which inspired Cash throughout his career, and brings the emotive, haunting lyrics of “She Used To Love Me A Lot” to life.
“‘She Used to Love Me A Lot’ contains all the hallmark brilliance of Cash. The honest simplicity and deep conviction of his delivery shines through,” said Hillcoat. “The lyrics seemed to speak to America as it is now, to the nation that loved him and to the great divide he fought so hard against. This divide has only grown exponentially since he died, so we wanted to show America under this stark light and as a homage to the very reason Cash always wore black: to the shameful increase of the disenfranchised and outsiders. At the same time, we wanted to reference the great man’s own struggle and journey from the love of his life to the burnt out ruins of his infamous lake house home, personal photographs, the cave where he tried to take his life but then turned it all around, the place he last recorded in and his last photo before his passing.”
