Tim McGraw, ‘Truck Yeah’ Video Shoot Underway in Chattanooga
Tim McGraw is reportedly in Chattanooga, Tenn., this week to film the music video for his current single, “Truck Yeah.” According to Nooga.com, the country superstar filmed at least a segment of the clip yesterday (Aug. 21) at the former site of the U.S. Pipe and Foundry, which operated for more than a century. Since the tune touts slinging “a lil mud off the back” of a truck, the website presumes this is the site of the shoot’s “muddin’ scenes.”
The “Truck Yeah” video is expected to be filmed entirely in Chattanooga, with actors, extras and crew members working through today (Aug. 22). However, cinematographer and photographer Joe Labisi — who tweeted a photo yesterday of a digital clapperboard, designating him the DP of the shoot (and Chris Hicky the director) — also posted on the social networking site this morning (before 7:00 AM) that it was “wrap time.”
Tim’s Facebook account also posted the photo to the left yesterday, with the question, “Can you guess what we’re doing today? Hint: #TRUCKYEAH.”
The Louisiana native will be in Foxborough, Mass., this Friday and Saturday for the last two shows on the Brothers of the Sun tour with Kenny Chesney, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals and Jake Owen. Tim will then take a short break from the road before starting a series of weekend shows with wife Faith Hill at the Venetian hotel and casino in Las Vegas.
