Creature Comfort— Common John (Southern Shame)

June music feature Creature Comfort has been on the rise since they moved to Nashville. The Tullahoma, Tennessee natives won this year’s Road to Roo competition, which allowed them to play a festival they’ve been attending most of their lives (Tullahoma is only twelve miles from the Bonnaroo site).

Today, the indie outfit is releasing the video for their new single, “Common John (Southern Shame),” a song about self-exploration and finding a place between the country and city. The four friends that make up Creature Comfort are exactly that—friends first—which is fitting considering “Common John” is meditation on what it means to move forward in life with your friends by your side.
