Just as Patty Loveless was hitting her career stride, one of her biggest hits was about being tied to the past. The catchy single “Chains” climbed to No. 1 in March 1990, ushering in a decade of radio success and exceptional albums.
In retrospect, the music video for “Chains” is kind of odd, with cave dwellers and silent-film footage sprinkled throughout. Nevertheless, the message of persistence and her winning smile still make it worth watching.
