After Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard won duo video of the year honors Wednesday (June 10) at the CMT Music Awards, I had the chance to find out what it was they loved the most about making it.
And it was that they got to get out of the box and into the barn.
The video — directed by Nigel Dick (a longtime LeAnn Rimes collaborator) — was a bit of a departure for the country duo. Mostly because the song is a ballad but also because, at nearly five minutes, the video is more of a mini-movie.
The song tells the story of the life of two young lovers and the roots that their love creates. And according to Kelley, they wanted to make sure the video did that story justice.
“The video had to match the energy and the passion of the song,” he said, “and I feel like we’re blessed that we did that.”
