DEVON GILFILLIAN SHARES “THE GOOD LIFE”LYRIC VIDEO
Today, Devon Gilfillian released the lyric video for his new top 15 AAA radio hit, “The Good Life.” The collage-style clip incorporates images that Gilfillian captured in Nashville during the BLM protests earlier this summer and opens with a powerful message that contextualizes it within the message of the song: “The fight for love, and the battle against social injustice starts with understanding the struggles of people who don’t look like you. We will only find peace when we replace fear with love for all humans.” View the lyric video, directed by Jonah Best and Rahul Sharma, Here and watch Gilfillian’s “The Good Life”mission statement Here.
“I wanted to write a song about how beautiful it is that someone has a different belief system, different skin color, or comes from a different country,” says Devon Gilfillian. “This country is made up of people who came from many different countries. That’s what makes this country so beautiful. Only when we embrace each other’s differences with love, while ACTUALLY acknowledging each other’s past, will we find understanding and change.”
“The Good Life,” a rallying cry for inclusion, is from Gilfillian’s debut album, Black Hole Rainbow, which was released by Capitol Records earlier this year. Streams of “The Good Life” skyrocketed after Gilfillian performed the song on “CBS This Morning Saturday.” He also performed the song during his recent KCRW In Residence and World Cafesessions. Gilfillian performed the national anthem at NASCAR 2020 on the day they banned the Confederate flag.
Gilfillian recently launched The Good Life Fund, which will support organizations that are doing good in the world, including Give A Note Foundation and Rebuilding Together Nashville. To learn more or make a donation, visit https://joingenerous.com/good-life-fund-r5oh5.
