Taking a short break from their headlining tour Take Me Downtown, the Lady Antebellum trio took to the Today Show this morning for the release of the highly anticipated music video for their newest single ‘Bartender.’
When first released fans and other spectators noticed this song was a different direction taken by the band. It takes on a fresh, modern tone that helps prove the undeniable theme that country music is becoming more and more mainstream with each new single dropped.
The sultry video, directed by Shane Drake features supermodel Kate Upton as well as Emmy award- winning actor Tony Hale. The story line takes Upton and her friends for a night on the town where they meet bartender (Hale), and a drinking battle ensues.
“I think we definitely captured the spirit of the song, but we also through in some unexpected twists that the fans will love,” said Kelley of the music video, “Hands down my favorite video we’ve ever done.”
