Not too long ago, we interviewed Wes St. Jon, a singer/songwriter known as “The Oilfield Cowboy.” Wes lives in Nashville, but he’s been spending lots of time in North Dakota’s oil patch, introducing himself to roughnecks and other folks. He’s written 30 songs about life in the oil fields, including “Boom or Bust,” a tune about the ups and downs of the business.
This music video was shot in Williston and Epping, North Dakota, and on location at a red-white-and-blue pumpjack just off a gravel road between those two towns. Thanks to Arnie’s Motorcycle Sales in Williston for use of the Harley-Davidson.
The original interview with Wes is here.
