The Infamous Stringdusters just released a new music video for their song “Gravity,” off their thirteen-track album Laws Of Gravity, which was released in January of this year. The song was written by bassist Travis Book along with his singer/songwriter wife Sarah Siskind, with Book explaining the song as a “kind of a straight forward love song.” He elaborated in a press release, “In a lot of ways, it encapsulates the vibe around our relationship and our marriage. The lyric goes, ‘We thought the race was a long run, we didn’t know that we’d win it.’ When you’re in the middle of it you don’t necessarily realize this is it. You think there’s some trajectory but this is what it’s like to be in a relationship. And then hoping that gravity doesn’t let go, the forces that hold the earth together don’t just end and you all just sort of go floating off into space.”The video for “Gravity” was directed by Mara Whitehead, and is a touching nostalgia-inspired video showing moments of young love. After the Infamous Stringdusters’ video was premiered on CMT on the 18th, you can now check it out for yourself below.

We just thought we were going to get a diploma in the mail,” said graduating senior Jenna Kaufman. “It means a lot to be with your friends and stuff.” The separation of the ceremonies was necessary due to New York State guidelines limiting in person graduations to 150 attendees. “20 people is better than none,” Melendez said. “I’m glad I got to hear everyone’s speech and get my diploma. It means a lot. I’d rather get to do it in person than just get it in the mail or anything.” Fellow gradate Andre Melendez agreed. Students were permitted to have a limited number of family members in attendance and anyone unable to attend could watch the ceremony live on YouTube. The ceremonies kicked off at 8 a.m, and continued until around 4 p.m. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — Johnson City High School held several separate commencement ceremonies throughout the day honoring more than 170 graduates. 12 News caught up with students outside the ceremony who say they were grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the occasion in person.
