Lady Antebellum Debut ‘Bartender’ Video
Lady Antebellum serve up plenty of fun in the video for their latest single, ‘Bartender.’ The trio enlisted the help of model Kate Upton and Emmy-winning actor Tony Hale (‘Veep,’ ‘Arrested Development’) for the comedic new clip.
“I think we definitely captured the spirit of the song, but we also threw in some unexpected twists that the fans will love,” Charles Kelley says. “Kate and Tony took what could have been just another music video to a really cool place. I mean, pretty much every guy in America is in love with Kate Upton. And if I’m being totally honest, Dave and I now both have a little man-crush on Tony too…he’s hilarious! Hands-down my favorite video we’ve ever done.”
In the song, Hillary Scott sings, “What I’m really needing now / Is a double shot of Crown / Chase that disco ball around / ‘Til I don’t remember / Go until they cut me off / Wanna get a little lost / In the noise, in the lights / Hey, Bartender,” while downing several rounds of shots and mixed drinks. It’s a message the songstress says she is proud to stand behind.
“As a female, I love the fact that it’s not this song about her [saying], ‘My heart’s been broken, it’s so sad, he did me wrong.’ It’s not about going and rebounding with some other guy,” Scott notes. “She’s just going out with her friends and having a night to forget about what this dude just did to her. I love that as a woman, kind of taking the reins in a situation and getting over it in a fun way.”
The trio will have plenty of chances over the summer to perform ‘Bartender,’ which is the debut single from their upcoming album. They are currently headlining their Take Me Downtown Tour, which heads to Colorado and Wyoming this weekend. See a list of all of their upcoming shows here.
