Charles Wesley Godwin celebrates home and family in new video for “Family Ties”

Charles Wesley Godwin’s new album Family Ties, Godwin’s third album and first with Big Loud Records, is a portrait of home, of relationships, of lessons learned and lived. In the new video for the title track out today, Godwin puts home and family front and center.

Blending solo performance footage with archival scenes of a variety of different families, the “Family Ties” music video also features cameos by members of Godwin’s own family – his wife and kids, his parents, his brother, and even his family dog. The video was filmed in Godwin’s hometown of Morgantown, W.V., where Godwin will play a run of four sold out shows at the Metropolitan Theatre in December.

The 19-track Family Ties, out September 22, showcases a tunesmith at the peak of his powers — melding melody with memories, workmanship with wisdom. Godwin demo’ed the songs that would become Family Ties on a Tascam 4-track (thanks to his love for Bruce Springsteen’s seminal Nebraska) and then recorded them at one of his dream studios, Echo Mountain in Asheville, N.C., before he signed a record deal. He recorded the album with his long-time band, the Allegheny High, and long-time producer, Allegheny High guitarist Al Torrence.

Fresh off a run opening arena shows for friend and collaborator Zach Bryan, Godwin begins his own fall headline tour today in Colorado. Many of the shows are already sold out, including Godwin’s first-ever headline shows at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. on December 7 and 8. In 2024, Godwin will join Luke Combs on 12 dates of his Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old stadium tour. Godwin is also confirmed for the 2024 edition of the Buckeye Country Superfest on June 22, 2024 in Columbus, Ohio alongside Bryan, Billy Strings, Turnpike Troubadours, and Charley Crockett.
