If You Like the “Forever Country” Single, Tonight’s Video Premiere Will Be Worth the Wait


By now, most country music fans have heard “Forever Country,” the CMA’s new recording that combines 30 award-winning artists in a new mashup of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” and Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again.” But tonight on Dancing with the Stars, we’ll get our first glimpse at the epic music video that accompanies the single.

 “We don’t even know about the concept of the video itself other than, you know, there’s gonna be some stuff going on behind us,” Kix Brooks confesses, “but [there is] a very talented director as well so we’ve all kind of got a big question mark hanging over our head right now…” he jokes.

“The visual side of it is really what’s gonna be beautiful,” Vince Gill predicts. “And everybody is excited to see what [director] Justin [Kahn] is gonna do with it.”  

Monday night at an exclusive screening at Nashville’s historic Belcourt Theater, Music City insiders got their first glimpse at what’s being called the biggest music video in country music history. If you can envision the Ryman rising behind Reba as she sings a snippet of Dolly’s signature song, that’s just a foretaste of the dreamlike clip.

The first 90 seconds of “Forever Country” will premiere Tuesday on Dancing with the Stars, which starts at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. You’ll be able to watch the entire video immediately afterwards at ForeverCountry50.com. You can check out a behind-the-scenes preview of the shoot at GMA.Yahoo.com.
