2018 Golden Boot Awards: Vote Now for Music Video of the Year
Welcome to the fifth annual Golden Boot Awards! The Boot’s fan-voted digital awards, the Golden Boot Awards feature 10 categories of staff-selected nominees who made waves in the country music world in 2018. Readers can vote for their preferred winner in each category as often as once per hour through 11:59PM ET on Jan. 27. We’ll announce the winners on the site on Jan. 28.
The year 2018 brought country music fans some epic music videos from some of our favorite veteran stars and a few up-and-comers. From Kelsea Ballerini's cliche-kicking “I Hate Love Songs” to the Brothers Osborne's rowdy “Shoot Me Straight,” the lineup of Golden Boot Awards Music Video of the Year nominees swings from powerful emotions to hilarious gimmicks.
The fantastic “Short Skirt Weather” video finds Kane Brown getting all "dolled up," while Eric Church becomes a “Desperate Man” in his retro-themed, high-stakes thriller of a clip for the title track of his newest album. In his nominated music video, Brett Eldredge learns to “Love Someone" -- namely, his adorable canine pal Edgar Boogie.
Chris Janson's hard-hitting "Drunk Girl" music video makes the audience take a dramatic and sober look at consent, and Maren Morris plays the hero in the Wild West video for her latest hit, “Rich.” True to form, the Pistol Annies also get rowdy -- but as divorcees -- in their music video for “Got My Name Changed Back."
John Prine takes a more delicate look at the past in the video for “Summer’s End," which tells the tragic story of one family's loss. Sugarland, meanwhile, go '60s glam -- along with Taylor Swift -- in the spectacular music video for their hit “Babe.”
