Watch New Music Videos from Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Little Big Town and More Country Artists
It was quite the week for new music videos in country music, and some of the genre's biggest stars put out new videos. Is your favorite artist one of the ones who did? Read on to check out all the latest music videos released this week.
Miranda Lambert, "Keeper of the Flame"
Miranda Lambert's "Keeper of the Flame" music video throws it back to her 2016 Keeper of the Flame Tour. Filmed and directed by Trey Fanjoy, it features live concert footage of Lambert performing the song while on the road. And, like any great touring video, it also gives viewers a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes of tour, from the rows of trucks and buses to the singer putting on her makeup and fans waving homemade signs. "Keeper of the Flame," written by Lambert, Natalie Hemby and Liz Rose, is the fourth radio single from The Weight of These Wings. --CV
Keith Urban, "Coming Home" (feat. Julia Michaels)
The word "home" means different things to different people. For some, home is an urban loft or cozy cottage; for others, it's the countryside or a worn seat at the neighborhood bar. Keith Urban depicts that in his new music video for single “Coming Home.” Andy Hines directed the clip, and Urban tells People, “My only desire was to not be specific about what or where or who home is. I like viewers to feel their own story and make their own connection." He adds, “Andy suggested the heightened reality that we see in the video, which keeps it somewhat like a dream, or at the least, an idea more than an actuality.” Toward the end of the music video, Julia Michaels joins Urban to sing her portion of the song. Home is many things, but for Urban, home is “wherever Nic and our girls are." --CV
Little Big Town, "Rocket Man"
Little Big Town's cover of Sir Elton John's 1972 hit “Rocket Man” now has a music video accompaniment--and it stars a young boy decked out in flashy garb that would make the superstar proud. We won't give too much away, but the video follows the boy as he sneaks out of the house, hops onto his glittering bicycle and hits the town on a dark, rainy night. Clips of LBT in appropriately colorful clothing are also shown in the video. The song hails from the tribute album of country singers, Restoration: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The song was originally released on John's album, Honky Chateau. --CV
Cole Swindell, "The Ones Who Got Me Here"
Cole Swindell has revealed the concept video for “The Ones Who Got Me Here.” It was filmed at Ken Redmond Stadium/Joe Patterson Field located in Nashville. Swindell drives up in an old orange Chevy Blazer and strolls around the empty field and bleachers singing about everyone and everything that contributed to his current status in country music and encouraged or motivated him along the way. "The Ones Who Got Me Here" is from his upcoming third studio album. --CV
Lori McKenna, "People Get Old"
"'People Get Old' is pretty much about my dad," she tells Billboard."Writing a song about my dad proved to be much more difficult because he's such a big part of my life, although he may have gotten the sort end of the stick poetically. He's 83 this year, so I finally delivered a song for him." "People Get Old" is from her forthcoming eleventh studio album The Tree, set to release on July 20 with CN Records via Thirty Tigers. --CV
Lindsay Ell, "I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)"
Lindsay Ell delivers her survivor's instinct in the video for her passionate interpretation of the song "I Don't Trust Myself (With Loving You)," off The Continuum Project, Ell's reimagining of John Mayer's 2006 album, Continuum. Following the strict "homework" assignment of producer Kristian Bush to record all instrumentation and vocals herself to recreate the tracks off Mayer's album, Ell breathes new life into the emotional song, set against the gritty backdrop of a vacant warehouse. --LS
Michael Ray, "One That Got Away"
Michael Ray puts an upbeat spin on heartbreak with the "One That Got Away" in the video for his latest single. Featuring the carefree blonde captain of a boat as she cruises along a southern coastline and eventually crosses paths with the artist, Ray's lyrics tell the story of a girl who is worth the gamble, even if in the end, she's "one hell of a one that got away." --LS
Dillon Carmichael, "It's Simple"
Dillon Carmichael takes it back to the basics in the video for his latest single "It's Simple." The classically styled country tune heralds the important things in life -- which are often also the easiest things to take for granted -- as the video plays out scenes from an all-American small town family. Backyard barbecues, gas station soda pops and bicycle rides on country roads aplenty all contribute, in this treatment to capturing the simple life that makes everything worth it. --LS
Mike and the Moonpies, "Beaches of Biloxi"
The music video for Mike and the Moonpies latest song, "Beaches of Biloxie," is a classic tale of woe set to the dark backdrop of dive bars and back-room poker games. The video was shot in and around Central Texas, capturing the "melodic gambler’s lament," of the tune with a few glimpses of a player's remorse, directed by David Bellarosa. --LS
Brett Kissel, "Guitars & Gasoline"
Brett Kissel captures life on the road as a country rocker, with additional glimpses behind the scenes, in the video for his song "Guitars and Gasoline." From backstage shenanigans and curling matches, to moments with Kissel's enthusiastic live audiences, the video follows the artist on his tour trek in an all-American country music anthem. --LS
Home Free, "Good Ol' Boy Good Time"
Home Free share a "Good Ol' Boy Good Time" in the video for their latest song, an upbeat, feel-good, summertime party anthem. Filmed near Tifton, Georgia, most of the cast of the video are real-life friends and family members of Home Free high tenor singer Austin Brown.
"This was definitely one of the most fun videos we’ve ever done. I was so excited to have the shoot in my hometown surrounded by the people I’ve known all my life," Brown says in a press release. "It was like a giant reunion, and I loved getting to have my family host our Home Free road family. I hope everyone has as much fun watching it as we did making it!" --LS
