While Valentine’s Day is only one day of the year, true love is everlasting; which is exactly what ‘60s soul revivalist Cody ChesnuTT conveys in his new video for the song “Love Is More Than A Wedding Day”.
“Love Is More Than A Wedding Day” comes from Landing On A Hundred, Cody’s second full-length LP that was released last October and marked his return to the music game after a period of family-man retreat and reflection. The title is a reference to the slang saying, “Keeping It One Hundred,” or telling the whole truth, and for lovers of true blue Southern soul this new album is a must-have — he recorded it with a ten-piece band in Memphis-based Royal Studios, the sonic birthplace of some of the deepest works by soul and blues luminaries like Al Green, Buddy Guy and Ike & Tina Turner.
Topics on Landing On A Hundred cover lots of grown-folks business: a man’s road to redemption after years of womanizing and crack addiction, the power and labor of slow-burning marital love that eclipses mere material expressions of affection. Keeping it truthful is ultimately what matters most in Cody’s songs: how it reveals itself in your darkest thoughts, how it can heal old wounds with a handclap and a foot stomp. Truthfulness emanates from Cody’s vocal chords and the strings of his guitar while his strong, sensitive voice continues to command listeners with its riveting sound, leading them to their own higher ground.
