Watch Brantley Gilbert’s ‘The Ones that Like Me,’ Lee Ann Womack’s ‘All the Trouble’ and More New Country Music Videos
It was a busy week for music video releases in country music, from autobiographical singles like Brantley Gilbert's "The Ones that Like Me" to stories of enduring love like Home Free's "Timeless." Read on to watch the latest releases!
Brantley Gilbert, “The Ones That Like Me”
Brantley Gilbert describes his song "The Ones That Like Me" as "me in a nutshell." And the accompanying music video is as straightforward as the song: It simply shows Gilbert being ... well, himself. Think Harley Davidsons and doughnuts. Front porch hangs and laughter. Sweet moments with his wife. Small-town hangouts. The black-and-white music video isn't about the country music star; it's about the guy. It even shows Gilbert at the grave of Kory Potts, his good friend who inspired part of "One Hell of an Amen."
"The Ones That Like Me" is the second single from new album The Devil Don't Sleep, and if parts of the video look familiar, you may be remembering his campaign for Apple Music released July 2017. -- CV
Lee Ann Womack, "All the Trouble"
Lee Ann Womack's new music video for her blues-drive single "All the Trouble" is smoldering. The clip for the dramatic ballad unfolds in a rambling, luxury home overlooking Los Angeles; Womack brings a smoky, soulful sound to life with retro glam style and a touch of stormy Southern gothic sound.
"All the Trouble" comes from Womack's latest album, The Lonely, The Lonesome and the Gone, released in October. Womack says her intention with the album was to return to her East Texas roots, and "All the Trouble" does exactly that, with a bit of melancholy swagger. -- LS
Luke Combs, “One Number Away”
Be prepared for the unexpected -- that's all we have to say about Luke Combs' "One Number Away" music video. At first, the clip tracks with the song's lyrics about a guy desperately wanting to call his ex: "And I'm one number away from calling to you / I said I was through, but I'm dying inside" ... but then, all of a sudden, it takes a different turn.
"I've always appreciated how people interpret songs in different ways, and I think the twist in this video may be different than what you’re expecting. " Combs writes on Facebook. In a press release, he notes his desire to have a music video as powerful as the song and adds, “One day at a creative session, the idea hit me: It wasn’t as much about a breakup as it was losing someone that you can’t get back, and that’s why I had the idea of the crash. That feeling when you want to pick up the phone to call that person, and they aren’t there, that is something that all of us can relate to in one way or another.”
"One Number Away" is the third single from Combs' This One's for You. -- CV
Whitney Rose, "Can't Stop Shakin'"
Whitney Rose "Can't Stop Shakin'" in the funkadelic new music video for the debut single off her album Rule 62. The heavy-on-the-horns tune taps into Rose's throwback disco-meets-country style and features an all-star backup band that includes guitarist Kenny Vaughan, steel player Chris Scruggs and organist Jen Gunderman -- not to mention the Mavericks' Raul Malo on harmonies and rhythm guitar, as well as fellow Mavericks member Paul Deakin and Asleep at the Wheel's Aaron Till. The video, set against a white backdrop, is an all-female boogie, a tribute to the therapy that Rose says the song was for her.
""Can't Stop Shakin’" started out as something I would sing to calm myself down,” Rose says in a press release. “We recorded that song on Inauguration Day, and you could physically feel the divide between the public and the unrest in the air. I was in the studio that week every day for 12 hours on average, so [I] realized my contribution was going to have to take place within the walls of Blackbird. So the song that started as a personal anthem got a rewrite that day.” -- LS
Home Free, “Timeless”
Home Free took a creative approach to their music video for "Timeless": They asked seven couples to recreate their most meaningful photos together -- and these aren't newlywed couples, either. One photo dates back to 1964! During the photo sessions, each couple recounted sweet memories and stories.
“We didn’t warn anyone ahead of time that they would be interviewed, which we think lead to some really heartfelt moments,” says the country a cappella group's high tenor, Austin Brown. “These are pairs that have stood the test of time, and that’s what we strive to do in our own relationships. Having everyone revisit their important moments really brought the song to life.”
"Timeless" is the title track from Home Free's latest studio album, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. -- CV
