POLL: Who Should Win Music Video of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards?
There have been some incredibly entertaining music videos released throughout the past year, by everyone from new country duo Maddie & Tae to country superstar Carrie Underwood. Five of these videos, each with its own theme and direction, have been nominated for Music Video of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards, but only one can be crowned the winner.
Kacey Musgraves' "Biscuits" clip was directed by highly touted director Marc Klasfeld. The goal was to make it feel like "Hee Haw meets Pee Wee’s Playhouse meets Wes Anderson," and the finished product -- a high-energy and fun music video -- is pure entertainment.
In contrast, Little Big Town's "Girl Crush" clip is shot in black and white, and it lets the song's lyrics do most of the talking. The end result is sophisticated, classy and low-key -- think deep red lipstick, a gleaming mirror ball and little black dresses. It was directed by Karla and Matthew Welch.
There hasn't been a music video as fun and satirical as Maddie & Tae's "Girl in a Country Song" video in quite a long time. And there's never been a country music video in which the male characters are wearing cut-off jean shorts, sporting crop tops and sensually biting into strawberries. Directed by TK McKamy, the "Girl in a Country Song" clip won Music Video of the Year in the 2015 Golden Boot Awards.
Miranda Lambert can be pure sass when she wants to be, and that's never been more apparent than in her "Little Red Wagon" music video. Directed by Trey Fanjoy, the cast of characters includes a tiny dog, a pool boy, a hilarious housekeeper and, of course, Lambert clad in some Daisy Dukes.
Last, but certainly not least, Underwood's "Something in the Water" is something to talk about. A Raj Kapoor-directed project, this music video features 12 dancers, and it's completely ethereal, integrating water and dance into an inspirational clip. Not only does it correlate well with the song's theme of faith and baptism, it's also visually engaging.
