- Carrie Underwood & John Legend – “Hallelujah”
Carrie Underwood and John Legend teamed up for a wintry and mesmerizing video to accompany their song, “Hallelujah.” The single is off Underwood’s critically-acclaimed Christmas album, My Gift.
2. Elle King & Miranda Lambert – “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)”
No pair can go shot for shot better than Miranda Lambert and Elle King. This is clearly evidenced in the fun, feisty and rambunctious video for their infectious new single, “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
3. Kane Brown – “Worldwide Beautiful”
Music has a power of unifying people together, and this is what Kane Brown does on “Worldwide Beautiful” and the powerful accompanying music video. A timely message and visual for the times we live in.
4. Keith Urban & P!nk – “One Too Many”
Thanks to technology, Keith Urban and P!NK managed to pull off filming the scenic music video for “One Too Many” remotely in the pandemic last year. Though it’s all green screen magic, it seems so real. Anyone else keen to join them on that ocean-floating couch?
5. Kelsea Ballerini – “hole in the bottle”
Kelsea Ballerini has tons of fun playing a newly-single lady on the “hole in the bottle” music video. Who needs a man when you can have multiple bottles of wine and your girl squad to celebrate life with, right?
6. Kenny Chesney – “Knowing You”
This stunning, cinematic visual tugs at the heartstrings. Filmed in New England and St. Croix, the video opens with a ruminative narration from Kenny Chesney, before truly bringing the aching ballad to life.
