Brad Paisley debuted his star-studded music video for his current single “No I In Beer” on Wednesday (July 29).
In the celebrity-filled new music video, Paisley enlisted quite the guest list of friends including Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Tim McGraw, Darius Rucker, Brett Kissel, Clayton Kershaw, Peyton Manning and several others, among some lucky fans.
The country superstar even included fan-submitted clips in the fun-filled “No I In Beer” video includes hilarious footage of the TikTok viral beersketball challenge, news briefings, guitarist from all over the world, Zoom calls that Paisley crashed including birthday parties, happy hours, hospital staff and also some footage from his recent drive-in concert.
225 fans joined the star singing and performing the song from the comfort of their own homes, quarantine may stop friends from gathering in-person but it’s 2020 and virtual hangouts are more important now then they’ve ever been which this music video proves.
“You invited me into your parties, your homes, you bounced beers off basketballs, and you’ve made this strange time so memorable for me. Here’s the video WE made. All in this together, indeed.” Paisley explained.
“‘Cause we’re all in this together / That’s why God put us here / Drinkin’ oughta be a team effort / There is no ‘I’ in beer,” they sing during the chorus.
The music video was edited by Paisley himself and includes fans and celebrity talent from 39 different countries and is the perfect example of a message of inclusion and togetherness.
Paisley co-wrote the track in 2018 with his longtime collaborator Kelly Lovelace and even though the song wasn’t written during quarantine, he says that it “takes on a new meaning” during the ongoing pandemic.
“It’s been fun to watch this take on this meaning of sort of defiance,” Paisley said about the track. “It’s sort of a way, like the world is screwed up and things are strange, but we can all have a beer together some way.”
“People are utilizing this time to connect and to feel solidarity as human beings,” he said in a press release. “If we’ve ever felt unified as Americans, as citizens of the world, it’s in the fact that nobody loves what we’re going through, but everybody’s willing to do what we have to do. One of those things is, let’s be a team.”
