Rising country artist Adam Doleac just released the official music video for his catchy single, “Famous,” which he co-wrote with Andy Skib and Bobby Hamrick.
For the clip, Doleac called on Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph of ABC’s The Bachelor to star as lead characters falling in love for the first time. Fans get to see Randolph catching the attention of Underwood, while she works as a production assistant on his fictional film entitled, Code Midnight. The pair flirts by making eye contact with each other from opposite sides of the room before Underwood works up enough courage to ask Randolph to slow dance with him.
“Colton and Cassie were my first choice when it came to who I wanted to have join me on the video,” Doleac told Country Now of the Preston Leatherman-directed clip, which also features him performing the song while seated on a barstool. “The fact that they were willing and supportive really made this dream come true.”
Indeed, it makes perfect sense for Underwood and girlfriend Randolph to play love interests in the music video, as it fits the role of their real-life romance. The pair was first introduced to fans during season 23 of The Bachelor. At the time, Randolph won Underwood’s heart during their one-on-one date in Thailand.
“When we were in Thailand filming the one-on-one dates for The Bachelor, we dealt with rain delays. That was really the first time Cass and I were able to bond over listening to country music,” Underwood recalled. “That’s why we were so excited for Adam to ask us to be in the video. We’re extremely grateful that we got to be a part of this with Adam and can’t wait to see where Adam’s talent takes him.”
Doleac and Underwood also share a unique kinship. Both talents played rigorous sports in college before getting into show business. Underwood was a football tight end at Illinois State before he spent time on various NFL teams. Meanwhile, Doleac, who Played Division 1 baseball at the University of Southern Mississippi, won three rings in four years and played in the 2009 College World Series.
Adam Doleac no longer plays baseball, but he does feel the same excitement when he entertains fans on stage. When he moved to Nashville in 2012, he quickly earned support from SiriusXM’s The Highway, and landed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. He has since scored cuts by artists such as Kane Brown, Darius Rucker and Hootie & The Blowfish. More recently, Doleac signed a contract with Sony Music Nashville on the Arista Nashville Imprint.
“Famous,” which reached the No. 1 spot on the Hot 30 Countdown for SiriusXM The Highway, is set to hit country radio Dec. 16.
