âForever Countryâ is a country music video like no other.
This song, which was made to honor the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards, features 40 of country musicâs hottest names singing a mix of three endearing country classics. Although country music fans probably have already heard this song, since it was first played on September 16th, âForever Countryâ has only just recently been released in music video format.
This music video was directed by the Korean American director Joseph Kahn. Kahn is perhaps best known for his work on videos for Eminem, Taylor Swift, and U2. Kahn collaborated with the songwriter Shane McAnally to organize the perfect arrangement of lyrics and music for this video.
The three songs that âForever Countryâ is made up of are Dolly Partonâs âI Will Always Love You,â John Denverâs âTake Me Home, Country Roads,â and Willie Nelsonâs âOn The Road Again.â The video features stunning visuals that take viewers on a ride across the Deep South and around the world.
The roster of big name country stars featured in this video is really the highlight of âForever Country.â Some of the country stars people will get to see and hear in this video include Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, and Keith Urban.
Many people feel that the most emotional part of âForever Countryâ is seeing Randy Travis, who suffered a stroke in 2013, take part in this great collaborative video. Although he doesnât sing, his presence in the video has made a powerful impact on viewers.
