Dwight Yoakam’s ‘Liar’ Enters The Boot’s Video Shootout Hall of Fame
The video was filmed on the iconic Sunset Boulevard in Burbank, Calif. and features Yoakam and his band playing on the back of an El Camino. Instead of shutting the street down, Yoakam and director Gregory Alosio decided to do a live shoot on the legendary Sunset Strip. The result? A music video that captures Sunset Boulevard in its richest sense, and one that fans obviously love.
"Liar" began its Video Shootout run in early August and went head to head with Gloriana‘s “Trouble” and Chris Young's "I'm Comin' Over." He easily won that round and in the second week, Yoakam went up against Thomas Rhett‘s “Crash and Burn” clip and Pat Green‘s heart-wrenching “While I Was Away” video. Yoakam received a whopping 85 percent of the votes and went on to round three
After that, Yoakam was unstoppable beating out A Thousand Horses and their music video for “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial,” Kacey Musgraves‘ cheeky video for “Biscuits” with extreme ease. To capture the Video Shootout Hall of Fame spot, Yoakam beat out duo Thompson Square and their clip "Trans Am" as well as Gary Allan's "Hangover Tonight."
Congratulations to Yoakam for entering the Video Shootout Hall of Fame!
