Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Mark Edgar Stuart’s video for his song “Don’t Blame Jesus.” “Don’t Blame Jesus” is Mark Edgar Stuart on acoustic guitar; John Argroves on drums; Landon Moore on bass; John Whittemore on steel guitar, Adam Woodard on keys; Kelley Mickwee on backing vocals. The song was recorded by Scott Bomar at Electraphonic in Memphis.
The video was created by Mark Edgar Stuart. With an analogue sounding production style, Mark Edgar Stuart and his winding tales represent the best of classic folk music.
The song was relevant a few years ago when I wrote it, and unfortunately today it’s even more relevant. I tried to have a little sense of humor, but not too much. I imagined Jesus sitting on a cloud looking down in disbelief at the world his dad created thinking “What have y’all done? You can have it, I’m not coming back” The video is just a hodgepodge of old images from the news that tell the story. Also done with a wee bit of humor. — Mark Edgar Stuart
