Carrie Underwood multi-tasking last night at the CMA Awards. Not only did she co-host the show with Brad Paisley but during the show she released the video for her new song, “Something in the Water”.

Chase Bryant boards a train for his first ever video for “Take It On Back.”
Through the shoot, Chase is shown singing beside two trains as the sun sets. As the storyline develops, we see a relationship unfold on a train with a young couple. But that’s not the only reason trains are in the video. Chase says it’s also a nod to his past.
“My grandfather was super into trains,” he told People Magazine. “He was fascinated by them and collected them his entire life.”
“There were railroad tracks by my grandfather’s house but trains didn’t run through there very often. On the day my grandfather died – at the very moment it happened, I kid you not – a huge freight train came barreling down that track. It was so strange, but there was something very spiritual about it. So when I first read [director] Wes Edwards’s treatment for [my] video, I knew this had to be the storyline we chose. In some way, I feel like I get to share this video with my grandfather.”
Chase will play a free show at Juana’s Pagoda and Sailors’ Grill on Navarre Beach this Tuesday, November 11 at 7:00!
Lady Antebellum is taking you on a fun trip through New York City in the video for their new song, ‘Freestyle.’
The shoot features comedian/dancer Nathan Barnatt playing his alter ego, Keith Apicary, whose, dance moves steal the show.
Kristian Bush’s video for, “Trailer Hitch,” has a timely theme, zombies.
He tells CMT, “a zombie apocalypse” is under way, and apparently “the only thing that can save us” is his guitar and “the backbeat of this song.”
The “undead” element to the video was inspired by the same line that sparked the song — “I’ve never seen a hearse with a trailer hitch.” Kristian says he found the lyric “kinda funny” but also “kinda true. ”You can’t take it with you when you go.”
Tyler Farr is busy in the video for “A Guy Walks Into a Bar.” It shows him playing the song outside of a tunnel, then serves up drinks and breaks up a fight at a bar. And, in the end, he gets the girl.
Kenny Chesney has released a live video for his latest single, “Til It’s Gone,” taken from his show at the Georgia Theater in Athens that was filmed for ‘CMT Instant Jam’ special.
Fewer than 1,000 people were in the audience for the show, so Kenny is glad to share the performance on a larger scale. Kenny says, “If you think about what the song says, it’s very much a one-on-one piece of communicating. It’s about hanging on to the one who matters to you. For me, it’s talking straight to those hardcore fans who’ve been there — and saying ‘no matter where or what, I’m in this as long as you hang on.’”
Thomas Rhett debuted the music video for his new single “Make Me Wanna” yesterday.
He says, “Making this video put me a little outside my comfort zone. I wanted it to have a little swagger in a loose, fun way and reflect that sort of Bee Gees feel the song has. I’ve never claimed to be a dancer, but me and my band love to goof off on stage, especially to this song. I wanted the video to reflect that and let everyone know it’s OK to shake your hips a little bit.”
