    Anyone Know Who Does The Music For The Jack Daniels "Good Friends" Commercial?

    It's been said that if you want an answer to a puzzling question, go to the Links. This has been driving me bonkers for a couple of weeks now. There is an ad currently in high rotation on ESPN for Jack Daniels, featuring a snippet of some truly compelling, blues based music. The instrumentation consists of piano, organ, guitar and drums. (At first, I thought it was Blind Faith's "In The Presence Of The Lord" - Close, but no cigar.)

    The ad uses images of New York photographer Alan Kaplan, but that was a dead end in terms of research. No luck at the Adtunes website, either.

    Here is the ad.



    Anybody care to hazard a guess?

    chef, according to a quick search of Google and some website called WikiAnswers, it is a portion of a tune called "Time Won't Let Me Go" by The Bravery. I certainly hope that is indeed the case, otherwise, I've been no help at all.


    And wouldn't ya know it, a further perusal of internet answers suggests that it is not the above mentioned song. So there you go, chef. Probably some underemployed Americana/alt-country/former metal musicians, making milk and bread money through ad placement.
