Directed by James Burton Jockey, the video includes behind-the-scenes footage, interviews with Jackson, his mother and his wife.

“I grew up singing just about every one of these songs,” Jackson said. “And I love that sound, of that organ, and that music really stuck with me and, I’m sure, affected how I hear songs now and write songs, ’cause a lot of those old songs are really pretty, simple melodies that stick with you. These songs mean a lot to me.”
