WATCH: War Hippies Cover Randy Travis Classic

Country duo War Hippies have released an official music video to accompany their rendition of Randy Travis’ timeless classic, “Promises”.

War Hippies have taken on the challenge of reinventing “Promises” with a deep sense of reverence for its origins. Their rendition brings a contemporary twist to the classic tune while preserving its lyrics and heartfelt melody.

The music video, which features dear friends of the duo Randy Travis alongside his wife Mary, brings a deeply personal touch to the video. As a champion of new artists, Travis has embraced the duo since their formation, and their collaboration with the Travis family elevates the song to new heights. Infusing it with an added layer of authenticity and emotional resonance, War Hippies breathe new life into the melody. Their heartfelt interpretation invites listeners to reflect on the complexities of love and the consequences of broken promises.

War Hippies’ cover was originally released in October 2022 as part of the duo’s debut album, War Hippies. The album garnered significant attention, entering the iTunes Country Chart at No. 8 and securing the 30th spot across all genres within its initial week of release. To date it has accumulated over 5.5 million streams.

War Hippies are back out on the road this year with stops all over. Dates will feature headline shows, festivals and more dates with Travis Tritt. Look for War Hippies at the Brooklyn Bowl on Feb. 24th right here in Nashville.
