I have a special treat for y’all today, and you can only get it on I Love Memphis. Here it is:

That’s right. This post is the exclusive premiere of the latest Dead Soldiers official music video for their track “16 Tons”, featuring The Hooten Hallers. I have details and credits for the video at the bottom of this post.

If you haven’t been to a Dead Soldiers show, you’ve missed one of the more energetic, fun, and raucous (in a good way) local acts Memphis has going these days.

I’ve seen Dead Soldiers bring the house down hard with this particular track multiple times. I think the video, which also features Missouri blues rock group The Hooten Hallers, does “16 Tons” some serious justice.


To keep up with their tours and local shows, follow Dead Soldiers on Facebook or on their website.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
