Judah & The Lion Releases Music Video For “Why Did You Run?”

Nashville band Judah & The Lion has released the animated video for their new single “Why Did You Run?,” which you can check out below. About the song, member Judah Akers explains ““The first verse is about me getting a call from my mom when she was in jail but I didn’t know what to do or say. And, of course, right after I called my dad but he didn’t answer and it felt like a very lonely moment. It was like, ‘Oh, I’m in the world alone.’ I imagined how hard it’d be to be a 13-year-old kid dealing with a divorce, because here I am, a 25-year-old, and it just rocked me.”
