Holly Williams’ ‘Waiting on June’ Music Video Inducted Into The Boot’s Video Shootout Hall of Fame
The touching tribute to Williams' lesser-known grandparents, Warren and June White, and their 58-year love story, started its run by besting Blake Shelton's video for ‘Neon Light’ and the visual for ‘Look at You’ by Big and Rich with 47 percent of the vote.
In its second week, 'Waiting on June' took on Keith Urban‘s sexy ‘Somewhere in My Car’ clip and Old Dominion‘s lyric video for their debut single, ‘Shut Me Up.’ Williams' video earned 60 percent of the vote.
“This song means more to me personally than anything I’ve ever written,” Williams says. “It’s the bittersweet true story of my grandparents’ life together from the beginning until the end. I wrote it from the shoes of my papaw to my granny, shortly after I lost both of them.”
Finally, 'Waiting on June' competed against Brad Paisley‘s latest for ‘Perfect Storm,’ as well as Glen Campbell‘s video for ‘I’m Not Gonna Miss You,’ which captures the final recording session of his career. Williams earned 60 percent of the vote -- and her spot in the Hall of Fame.
“We compiled tons of old family footage to disperse throughout this video that was shot as a live performance,” says the new mom of the clip. “It meant so much to me to make this video.”
Congratulations to Holly Williams!
