The Star Wars Theme Song Done Bluegrass Style

YouTuber SamuraiGuitarist has created a new video blending that most natural of combinations: Star Wars and bluegrass music.

...Wait, what?

Here's how he describes the video, which is actually pretty great:

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...in an alternate reality, a young Billy Luke Skywalker has befriended Ol' Ben Ken Bobby. After receiving a distressing message from the beautiful debutante, Charleia, the two set off to Mos Eislenburg, Kentucky. Here they run into the local moonshine trafficker and overall scumbag , Hank Solo Jr., in a seedy local bar. Solo offers the two a ride past the county line in his beat up Ford Falcon as long as they don't mind riding with his dog, Chewingtobacca. The adventure of a lifetime is on the horizon for this unlikely entourage, and I like to imagine this would be the soundtrack.

You can check the video out below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow.
