Who is Dustin Lynch’s ‘Small Town Boy’ Video Co-Star, Claire Holt?
Fans at the nightly concerts during CMA Fest were in for a special treat when Dustin Lynch debuted part of his sexy video for “Small Town Boy” on the big screens within Nissan Stadium. The clip was shot on the West Coast, complete with a beach-side day of fun in the sun.
“We had a great day. You know, it was a one-day shoot out there. Beautiful day, you couldn’t ask for a better day,” Lynch told Sounds Like Nashville and other media backstage during a press conference. “It was all about being in the moment. It’s all about that moment. It’s all about that feeling of just being with that person that you truly love and adore. That’s why I fell in love with this song and that’s kinda what we wanted to capture with this video.”
Lynch was surely in the moment, partly due to his stunning Australian co-star.
“We had a blast shooting this video,” Dustin shared. “It was out in Malibu with Claire Holt, who is an incredible actress and smokin’ hot… She did a great job. She taught me a lot of things on the cameras.”
Holt’s name and face may be familiar to those who’ve caught the previews for the new feature length film 47 Meters Down. The blonde actress co-stars alongside This Is Us actress Mandy Moore in the film that follows sisters Kate and Lisa on a trip to Mexico. The siblings get trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean and with less than an hour of oxygen in their tanks and great white sharks circling above, there’s not much time left to decide what to do.
Thankfully for Holt, her shoot with Lynch was much less intensive than being in the bottom of shark-infested waters. Her other acting credits include Mean Girls 2, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
Lynch will take “Small Town Boy” out on the road for a slew of tour dates this summer. The track is the lead single from his forthcoming, unannounced full-length album.
