Just Whiskey Releases Fresh Rendition of Classic Americana Song “O Death”

O Death is a traditional song ripped directly from the pages of the American Songbook. It has been sung and performed countless times – because of it’s timelessness and it’s roots in American music, we choose to make our own modern rendition. It’s lyrics personify death and are chilling, haunting and honest; something we were looking to capture. Typically it’s sung either a cappella or as a ballad, but we decided to go the opposite direction and give it a southern-rock edge.”
