(WATCH) Kirsty Lee Akers - Heart of Stone

Heart of Stone is the fourth single lifted from Kirsty Lee Aker’s self-produced album, Under My Skin, with the official music video premiering on the Country Music Channel last Friday.
 
Created by Kirsty Lee Akers and produced and directed by Jesse Anderson (Klik Productions), the Heart of Stone video clip brings the story of the Goree Girls to life.

The Goree Girls were a band of female prisoners of the Goree Unit in Huntsville Texas and were the first documented all-female country and western band, performing throughout the 1940's. Serving time for everything from murder to cattle rustling, the girls spent their days at the Goree State Farm doing a variety of things. Apart from working in the fields, they would also tend to the hen house and sew garments for the entire Huntsville prison system. They taught themselves how to play instruments and started performing on the local radio program broadcast from the prison, gaining a following and fans from all over the country.
 
"When I first came across the story of the Goree Girls, it immediately caught my attention. In this version, the girls actually escape from prison unlike in real life,” says Akers. “I thought about what I would have done if I was in their shoes and bought out a little of their bad girl side.”
