Nashville Takes a Bow in Kings of Leon’s “Temple”

Nashville has always held a sweet spot for Kings of Leon, the mega-rock band born and raised in Music City. Despite achieving massive commercial success and earning fans around the world, the family band made up of three brothers and a cousin has not forgotten their roots.

In fact, their hometown practically stars in the new video for “Temple.”


Mixed in with an arena-ready performance from the band is a candid tour of their city’s iconic spots — like the Ryman Auditorium, the pedestrian bridge across the Cumberland River and, of course, Lower Broadway in all its neon-lit, no-cover, country music glory.

It’s all shot on an old Super 8 film camera and even captures the guys spending some daddy time with the newest members of the Followill clan.

Check out Kings of Leon’s “Temple,” the third single off their latest album, Mechanical Bull.
