Lady Antebellum Haze Jason Aldean’s ‘Dirt Road Anthem’ in New Video
Lady Antebellum target Jason Aldean's most recent hit, 'Dirt Road Anthem,' in the latest song-spoof episode of their video series, 'Webisode Wednesday.' The Colt Ford co-written song is the victim of a fun video co-starring ... Colt Ford! Few will argue that Lady A's 'Country Club Anthem' is not the trio's best prank yet. It's surely their most expensive.
The video opens with all three members of the band surrounding a golf cart, with Colt Ford lurking nearby in neon polka-dot shorts and a tangerine colored polo. All four are looking their country club best, and Charles Kelley quickly takes the lead, singing the song's chorus. "Chilling on the first green / Laid back sipping lemonade and sweet tea, Arnold Palmer's y'all / Got on a Polo and some Croakies / Straight pimping like it's 1973."
The video makes fun of the stereotypically square country club member as much as it pokes at Aldean's hit song. "Draining these putts make it look so simple / Sippin' on this Shirley Temple," Kelley sings in the first verse. Later, the hip-hop stylings of Hillary Scott steal the show. "So many pimps up in this spot / Like lawyers, doctors and astronauts / Make sure you don't talk to0 loud / Get your God voice on / Quiet as a mouse."
Colt Ford gets to throw a few lyrics around as well, but his best contributions are physical. Early in the song he's dancing around the green with a jug of Arnold Palmer sweet tea/lemonade in each hand, spilling it all over like a drunken college girl at her first spring break. Dave Haywood's verse is also appropriately square. His sharp and chunky rhythm is closest to what one would expect from a member of the privileged class.
