Gay alt-country band Indiana Queen just released their newest music video for the song "With You" from the album "This I Do Carry Unto The End." The video is a melancholy yet hopeful love story shot and edited entirely on iPhones. The video features lead singer Kevin Thornton and his real-life partner.

"We found each other in our 40s," Thornton says. "We had both given up on love in some ways. The video shows two people like that who have been beat up by love and life. Gay or straight, that's something anyone can relate to."

The band has been stirring things up in Nashville since the release of their new album. "We are starting to get lots of messages," says Thornton. "Gay people out there telling us how much it means to them to see themselves represented in country music."

Indiana Queen will be headlining Nashville Pride in June.
