Dedicated to all of the women who care for the land, the music video for Keep That Soil Alive explores our legacy and connection with the land, landowner-tenant relationships, and the many different conservation practices that help our soil stay alive and thrive -- all woven together with a Johnny Cash-inspired tune and some good ol’ fashioned country line dancing!
