Wallow in the Dairy State pride of Trapper Schoepp’s ‘On, Wisconsin’ video

By now you probably know the story behind Trapper Schoepp’s track “On, Wisconsin.” The Milwaukee songwriter learned about a never-recorded Bob Dylan song from 1961 about the Dairy State, then set about finishing it, acquiring permission from Dylan’s estate to complete the song.

Today Schoepp released a video for the track, and it’s a cameo-studded affair. What better way to celebrate the Dairy State than by showcasing some of the people who call it home? The video features dozens of Wisconsin musicians, business owners, politicians, artists, activists and local celebrities, including a few friendly faces from our own radio station. Watch it below.
