Lady A drops "Bartender" today with Upton

Thursday, June 19, 2014 – Lady Antebellum premiered the music video for its new single "Bartender" on Today this morning.

Super model Kate Upton (The Other Woman, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model) and Tony Hale (Arrested Development, VEEP) are in the clip, which fans can now watch here and on other media web sites this afternoon.

Directed by Shane Drake and shot in Los Angeles last month, the plot takes Upton and her girlfriends on a wild night out where a drinking battle royale ensues with a shot-slinging bartender (Hale), and only one is left standing.

"I think we definitely captured the spirit of the song, but we also threw in some unexpected twists that the fans will love," said Lady A's Charles Kelley.

"Kate and Tony took what could have been just another music video to a really cool place. I mean, pretty much every guy in America is in love with Kate Upton. And if I'm being totally honest, Dave and I now both have a little man-crush on Tony too...he's hilarious. Hands-down my favorite video we've ever done," said Hillary Scott.

Heart Break CD review - Heart Break
Lady Antebellum may cause you to throw out many of your country music principles. They don't sing and play traditional country music, for starters. They're not cool like more rocking Americana artists. In fact, they're huge mainstream country stars. So, why are some of us still suckers for their sound? And why does the new "Heart Break" sound so good on the ears? Well, it's simple, but complicated. Hillary Scott is simply a wonderfully sincere singer. »»»

Six albums into its career, Lady Antebellum pretty much has the formula down pat. Either Hillary Scott or long and lanky Charles Kelley assumes lead vocals with Dave Haywood also providing vocals plus guitars and mandolin in a bunch of songs easy on the ears with a story often involving a lust for love. The typical song ("Lie With Me," for example) starts with Kelly or Scott taking a stanza, followed by the other with both then tackling the chorus together. This has worked quite well »»»
