While they are often found on glamorous red carpets or giving once-in-a-lifetime performances — like they did on the 49th annual ACM Awards — the couple’s new video for the song from McGraw’s upcoming album finds them at home on the sprawling grounds of their Tennessee farm.
“The reason I picked the farm is because anytime I can be at the farm, I wanna be at the farm,” McGraw told Entertainment Tonight about shooting the nostalgic video. “I don’t get out there enough, so if you can combine having to work with a little bit of hanging out at the farm at the same time, then that’s always a good thing.”
Featuring footage from the ACM Awards performance side by side with shots from the farm, the video highlights McGraw and Hill’s personal connection, which appears as strong as ever after nearly 18 years of marriage. But it also goes beyond love and romance to make a point about life in the modern world.
“It’s a sweet thing to remember in the middle of chaos in our world today,” Hill said. “Just to even mention ‘mama’ in a song brings back great memories.”
“Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” will be available on McGraw’s new album, Sundown Heaven Town, out Sept. 16.
