Carrie Underwood knows how to throw the ultimate girls’ night out.
In the midst of her critically acclaimed The Denim & Rhinestones Tour – the eight-time GRAMMY Award winner released a high-energy music video for “Hate My Heart,” which became the No. 1 most-added single at country radio.
The Shaun Silva-directed video finds Underwood and her girl squad coping with messy breakups. The cinematic clip begins like any popular rom-com with females acknowledging their self-worth and calling it quits on toxic relationships.
Following several door slams and signs of frustration, Silva films the four ladies approaching their breakups in different ways. While one indulged in ice cream, another maxed-out her credit card online shopping. On the other hand, Underwood went to the gym to channel her rage. The multi-platinum artist displayed her incredibly toned legs on the treadmill and mind-boggling boxing skills.
If country music fans watch closely, the singer paid homage to her chart-topping classic “Before He Cheats.” A friend engraved her name into her ex’s leather seats of his car.
Eventually, Underwood built up the courage to hit the town and reclaim her happiness. Without any convincing, her girl gang followed. The ladies head to a Carrie Underwood concert, the perfect place to heal a broken heart. The video captures the hitmaker riding a mechanical bull and crowd surfing.
Towards the end of the clip, Underwood the fan ended up on stage with Underwood the country phenomenon. Her posse did the same and stepped in as the all-female band. While they were leaving the venue, they compared themselves to their alter-egos.
“I could totally be a rock star,” said Underwood with a wink.
The singer-songwriter and Silva filmed on location at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. Silva served as the director for Underwood and Jason Aldean’s music video for their award-winning duet “If I Didn’t Love You.”
The powerhouse vocalist co-wrote “Hate My Heart” alongside frequent collaborators Hillary Lindsey, David Garcia, and HARDY. The party-starting banger lives on “Denim & Rhinestones,” which was released in June. The songstress is currently on the first leg of her 43-city stop tour with Jimmie Allen as direct support.
At a recent show in Texas, Kelsea Ballerini made a guest appearance and announced that the 2023 CMT Music Awards would be held in Austin at the Moody Center. The “Subject To Change” singer officially declared that Underwood, the most decorated artist in CMT Awards history, would perform at the star-studded affair. The 2023 CMT Music Awards will air on Sunday, April 2.
