The song appears on his debut album 'Pony'
Published Feb 24, 2020After a whirlwind year following the release of his debut full-length record Pony, Orville Peck has shared another visual accompaniment from the album.
Today, Peck has shared an epic Austin Peters-directed, eight-minute-long video for "Queen of the Rodeo," an endlessly glitzy actualization of the song's heavy-handed drag and rodeo themes. It also has a short interlude with another Pony track, "Roses Are Falling."
The video was shot at Billy Bob's Texas Rodeo and features appearances from Thanks Jem, Louisianna Purchase, Tess Holiday, Minxie Mimieux, Ryan Maddon, Elle Dorado, Elizabeth Becerril, Delilah DuBois, Dez Sam, Evan Tate, Ketch Weaver, Tami Thomsen, Ja'myra Harris, Sam Lao, Christopher "Click" Thompson, Alan Bick, Ketan Wyatt and Bowie the horse.
Late last year, Peck released a video summary of his epic 2019 in his most recent visual effort "Nothing Fades Like the Light." Exclaim! named his debut record the No. 1 Folk and Country Album of 2019.
