‘Get your Hand off it’ – Transport for NSW
Is anyone else having ‘walks the line’ de ja vu with this hilarious PSA from the guys at Transport for NSW? It’s got everything a country music vid needs; hay-covered fields, cowboy boots, busted-up vintage rides and a whiney country accent. They do a great job at getting the safe-driving message across without being too preachy, so remember to Get Your Hand off It people, sending a smiley-face emoticon while driving isn’t worth it!
‘Party in the USA’ – Miley Cyrus
Before Miley discovered marijuana-printed leotards and a new use for her tongue, she was an innocent teeny-bopper rocking the stage with some country-pop style hits. This track is jam-packed with vintage corvettes, lined up in front of a drive-in movie. The catchy tune features so many classic country references; it’s hard to keep up! From the dusty vintage cars, to the dirt roads, trailers and a whole lot of cowboy boots how could any country lover not watch wanna watch this?
‘Highway Don’t Care’ – Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift
When two of the biggest names in country music team up for a number one hit, what’s not to love?! Showcasing some classic shots of cars driving down lonely highways and a whole lot of tears, the video perfectly complements this emotional country hit. The actress in the video does however get into a pretty severe car accident while looking for her phone and texting-while-driving, so pay attention and use this as a warning!
‘Over And Over’ - ft. Tim McGraw
Apologies for the Tim McGraw double-up but this is one is a killer track, with Tim McGraw teaming up with hip hop veteran Nelly for an unforgettable country R&B ballad, ‘Over and Over.’ In the video, McGraw drives a Chrysler SUV through country highways and Nelly is in a classic, custom low-rider, as the two cruise the hood before boarding a private jet.
‘Two Black Cadillacs’ - Carrie Underwood
For one of our favourite country videos, we’ve included music sweetheart Carrie Underwood’s hit ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ which features, you guessed it, two black Cadillacs! There’s more than meets the eye with this moving track about jaded lovers though, with Miss Underwood causing quite a stir with the controversial theme of murderous revenge in the music video. If you don’t buy the sob story, at least check out the rims and custom fitting; classic car lovers – you won’t be disappointed!
