Reverend Peyton Leads the Parade to “Raise a Little Hell”


It’s been a month of Sundays, but Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is back with a brand new video featuring righteous guitar work, a well-worn washboard and … a drum line? Indeed. Not to mention the carnival characters and a mob of children who want to raise a little hell, too. You can’t judge, because that chorus is bound to get stuck in anybody’s head, no matter how old they are.

After the three-piece ensemble played a folk festival a while back, the promoter told the band, “Y’all sure raise a lot of hell.” As Peyton remembers it, “I said, ‘Naw we don’t.’ And then I thought, ‘Well, maybe we do raise a little hell.'”

Revered as the pride of Brown County, Indiana, the band is about to release the album So Delicious on Feb. 17. Join the parade and watch the CMT Edge premiere of Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band’s “Raise a Little Hell.”
