Justin Townes Earle's Dismal New 'Call Ya Momma' Video

Some say that life flashes before our eyes in the instant before death, but if you listen to Justin Townes Earle, maybe it's just one thought in particular: you should have called your mother more. The song, like many on the record and its precursor, Single Mothers, explores the weight, burden and dangerous comfort of parents and parenthood; like the antagonist in the clip, no one can gift that unique combination of life and misery quite like mom and dad.
