Thomas Rhett Releases ‘Star of the Show’ Music Video
Thomas Rhett has released the video for his latest single, “Star of the Show.” The song is already the fastest-rising single of Rhett’s career, and its popularity will likely only increase after fans get a look at its fun-loving and unique clip.
Directed by TK McKamy, Rhett's “Star of the Show” video was shot in one single take … and left completely unedited. In the video, Rhett moves from scene to scene, freezing for a split second as he begins a new action every few moments. Readers can press play above to watch.
“This music video was unlike anything we’ve shot before, which is why I always love teaming up with TK," Rhett says in a press release. “He captured that feeling I get when [my wife] Lauren walks into a room, no matter where we are, and the spotlight completely turns to her. The song was sped up double-time to get to point A to point B, and there were a lot of moving parts we had to execute perfectly for the video to make sense. We literally got it in the last take of the shoot.”
Like his CMA-winning Single of the Year "Die a Happy Man," Rhett’s "Star of the Show" was inspired by his wife Lauren and written shortly after their wedding; in fact, it was the first tune that Rhett ever wrote about her. Rhett has performed the song live but had never recorded it until recently.
"It was a staple in our set before we had any hits," Rhett recalls, "and fans still request it to this day."
