Jamaicans and Jamaica
Nashville, TN – Music icon Willie Nelson was in Ocho Rios, Jamaica last week shooting two new videos for his upcoming Lost Highway release Countryman, out July 12, 2005. The legendary Toots Hibbert (of Toots & The Maytals) is featured in a duet with Nelson in the video for the Johnny Cash/June Carter Cash song “I’m A Worried Man”, as well as on the CD release. Nelson also shot a video for his rendition of Jimmy Cliff’s classic song “The Harder They Come”. On the set during the shoot was Perry Henzell, who wrote and directed the groundbreaking film The Harder They Come in 1972. Also on the set was director Dickie Jobson who directed the legendary film Countryman (1978?), from which the title of Nelson’s new album was pulled as an acknowledgement to Jamaican lore. The videos for “I’m A Worried Man” and “The Harder They Come” were both directed by Jamaican native Ras Kassa, who recently directed Damian Marley’s hit “Trenchtown Rock”, among others.
