Justin Moore Shoots New Music Video for ‘Bait a Hook’
Justin Moore had his work cut out for him as he shot his new music video for his current single, ‘Bait a Hook,’ yesterday afternoon (Tuesday, September 27). As the song title suggests, the song has to do with fishing … which means Moore just had to suck it up and spend the day out at the lake in order to capture the song perfectly in the video.
“Somebody’s gotta do it,” Moore tells Taste of Country with a laugh. “It [was] awful.”
Moore shot the video out at Nashville’s Percy Priest Lake in plenty of sunshine on the gorgeous fall day. The relaxing setting helped take some of the edge off the task at hand, which is something that Moore typically dreads doing in general.
“I’ve made this known, but I’m not the best at shooting videos. It’s not the absolute favorite part of my job,” he says with a laugh. “But this one [was] fun. Not only were we on the lake and fishing and that kind of stuff, but I’m a big NASCAR fan. I’ve been able to meet Carl Edwards a few times. He’s one of my favorite drivers, and he’s actually in the video with me.”
‘Bait a Hook’ is the second single from Moore’s ‘Outlaws Like Me’ album. The tune, penned by Moore, his record producer Jeremy Stover and Rhett Akins, is the follow-up to his latest No. 1 hit, ‘If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.’ Moore and the songwriters of the recent chart-topper celebrated in Nashville earlier this week.
