My Kind of Country

Country music from a fan's point of view since 2008

A swarm of new videos!

CMTHead over to CMT’s website today, and there are 10 music videos that are premiering. Those would be “Southern Voice” by Tim McGraw, “I’m Alive” by Kenny Chesney & Dave Matthews, “White Liar” by Miranda Lambert, “Keep You” by Sugarland, “Consider Me Gone” by Reba McEntire, “That’s How Country Boys Roll” by Billy Currington, “Hit The Ground Runnin'” by Keith Urban, “Sooner Or Later” by Michelle Branch and “Cowboy Casanova” by Carrie Underwood (Click the links to get to the videos, as of now, the Kenny Chesney video doesn’t seem to be working…). The Chesney, Urban, McGraw and Currington videos are all either half or mostly performance videos, so this time around the girls have better videos. Here are my 3 favorites:

“White Liar” by Miranda Lambert
I saw it was a wedding scene, and I knew it would be awesome: it doesn’t disappoint. Look at the preacher… You might see another country star!

“Keep You” by Sugarland
A simple video set in a theater, for some reason Jennifer Nettles cuts her hair in the most depressing way possible. It kinda makes sense, but looks gorgeous and has an amazing song, so it’s still good.

“Cowboy Casanova” by Carrie Underwood
Definitely a pop video with dancing and outfits, but the retro vibe is awesome, and at the end that guy has to be freaked out. Random synchronized dancing terrifies me.

What do you think of the new videos? Anybody else think that Michelle Branch really looks like a Hippie? Will Keith Urban make more than one non-live video per album?

    Those are my top three as well, in that order as well. Not a fan of the Carrie song but the video is awesome. The Miranda song is to be expected. Sugarland looked to build on the success of “Stay” by letting the emotion of the song carry the video, rather than trying to infuse meaning through the video like so many others try.

    Carrie’s is no doubt the best. Miranda’s is just as bland and annoying as she always is…Sugarland’s is great too!

    Is it just me or did anybody else find it odd that there’s no cowboy in Carrie’s video?

    Greatest. Preacher. Ever.

    The Sugarland video reminds me of a skit from the old Muppet Show:

    I cannot play the videos here in my country, but I saw Carrie’s and Branch’s videos.

    I think Branch misunderstood country with Mexican immigrant, I don’t know. Nothing against Mexicans, I must say! =]
    And Cowboy Casanova just follows the song. Not a great thing, though.

    I think Michelle Branch’s video was a great one =) She looks like she’s a Native American

    Miranda’s was the best though! ❤

    I wasn't too impressed with Sugarland's video – its pretty boring, and the concept has been done before (Natasha Bedingfield's "I Bruise Easily" comes to mind)

    Love the I’m Alive video by Kenny..Not happy about him taking a year off but understand.
