Watch Black Stone Cherry’s emotional new video for ‘In My Blood’

Southern rockers Black Stone Cherry have a new hit in their powerful track “In My Blood,” which is closing in on the Top 10 on the mainstream rock chart. The gents just wrapped a North American tour with Cavo and Rains, and now, they have released the music video for “In My Blood.” Watch the full clip at the end of the page.

The video for “In My Blood” is extremely moving, featuring footage that documents PFC Randy Hirneisen, a 20-year-old soldier with the U.S. Army Europe, returning home from Afghanistan to meet his baby son for the first time. The clip follows his voyage from his deployment in Afghanistan as a ‘tanker’ to the his redeployment back to Germany and his homecoming in Augusta, Ga., where his wife, Cindy Torres, connects him with his two-month-old son, Randy Hirneisen Jr., for the very first time. It’s a tear-jerker.

The guys of Black Stone Cherry also recently surprised Hirneisen at a special homecoming party for the soldier in his hometown on Jan. 16. They pulled out a special, six song acoustic set at the party to thank Hirneisen for letting them use his story for the video and, of course, serving our country.

Black Stone Cherry have kicked off a “What’s In Your Blood?” web campaign, and they’re inviting fans to share stories of “What’s in their blood.” Fans may submit their inspiring tales through the rockers’ YouTube channel, and Black Stone Cherry will pick a winner on March 31. The prize? The guys will player a private, acoustic set in the winner’s hometown for their friends and family. To get in, visit the band’s official website. (Photo credit: Anne Erickson.)
