Clip stars Terry Crews
EMI Records Nashville recording artist Tyler Hubbard is gearing up for the January 27th release of his debut solo album, Tyler Hubbard, and has released an official video for his current single, “Dancin’ In The Country,” which is already in the Top 40 at radio and has over 35 million global streams. The video stars actor Terry Crews was directed by Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa Stone and choreographed by Maya Taylor.
Set in a bar while Hubbard performs “Dancin’ In The Country,” Crews and his group of biker friends walk in and immediately the unexpected occurs on the dance floor in an extraordinary “bar fight.”
“This video is unlike any video that I’ve ever been a part of,” says Hubbard. “We had the ultimate heavy hitter with Terry Crews on set – he was made for a video like this. One minute, he looked like he was ready to punch a hole in the wall, and the next, he’s got the entire room laughing, just being himself. Terry is one of those guys that everyone wants to be around, and he was just perfect for this video.” Adds Hubbard, “Terry and the dancers brought the choreography to life and were able to tell the story through their amazing dancing.”
“I was so excited to be asked to do this video with Tyler and when I saw the concept, I thought there was no one else that could pull this off,” says Crews. “This video is like a three-minute touchdown celebration, and it was so great to be a part of. For Tyler to allow me to represent something he wrote from his heart means a lot and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
