Bachelornation is converging with the country music world today (Nov. 1) by way of the new music video for Adam Doleac’s “Famous.” The video, directed by Preston Leatherman, stars Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, one of the most recent couples to come out of ABC’s The Bachelor.

“When I first put out ‘Famous,’ Colton and Cassie were the first famous people to post about the song,” says Doleac in an exclusive interview with Sounds Like Nashville. “That night I think I sent them both a message and was like, ‘Hey, thank you so much. I’m glad ya’ll love it.’ We didn’t really talk much after that until it came time to do the video. We thought it would be really cool to have some famous people in the video with it being called ‘Famous,’ and my first choice was Colton and Cassie.”

“[The song] just resonated and it hit us with what we were going through since freshly coming off the show and being thrust into this weird ‘fame,’” says Underwood. “Being famous — I feel like nobody’s ever really built for that, and at the time, we were still trying to figure out how to handle certain situations, and the lyrics and the dynamic of the song just really spoke to us.” 

While Underwood and Randolph are very much in love in real life, their characters meet for the first time in the video, and the sparks fly all over again. The video finds Underwood, who plays a movie star, doing TV interviews for his new blockbuster film. However, he becomes a bit distracted when he spots Randolph, a production assistant, on set. The two then trade glances, while Doleac sings in a separate frame, until Underwood finally introduces himself to Randolph and asks for a dance. 

“I was, I think, trying the whole time to avoid Colton’s eye contact, and it was really fun getting to try and act,” Randolph says of shooting the video. “I remember being so nervous. I was like, ‘I don’t know how to act,’ but it all came together so nicely. At the end of the day he asked me to dance, and I’m like, ‘Eh, I’m a little hesitant because I’m working,’ but then we dance on set and it’s really cute.”

That happy ending is soon shattered though, as the video fades out and shows that the story was all in Randolph’s imagination. Having just been awakened by a grocery store employee played by Doleac, Randolph realizes she is actually in the supermarket checkout line buying magazines with Underwood on the cover, a scene inspired by the ‘supermarket’ lyric in the song’s chorus. Back in reality, Randolph walks out of the store, but as she leaves, Underwood himself walks in and the two share a moment as if they had already met. 

“The very end was my favorite part of the whole entire shoot because Cass and I often joke about, ‘How would we have met each other if we didn’t go on the Bachelor?’” says Underwood. “For that scene, that was sort of one of our moments to be like, ‘Maybe we walked past each other in the grocery store. You showed those eyes and I came up and said hello.’”
