Toby Keith Films New ‘Made in America’ Video
No one could ever doubt that Toby Keith — who celebrates his 50th birthday today, July 8! — is a proud, card-carrying American, but the country superstar is putting his money where his mouth is with his upcoming video for ‘Made in America.’
Keith didn’t utilize a set in order to shoot the clip. Rather, he made use of real, red-blooded Americans, filming scenes in the heart of Cedarburg, Wisc., during the town’s Fourth of July parade last weekend. According to local station WISN, the town’s parade is actually the largest in the state, boasting 100 units, and it offers his video a slice of American life and reality.
Keith’s crew also filmed footage during his Summerfest performance that Friday night, but something tells us that the parade footage from this little town nestled in the southeast portion of the state will lace the video with a down-home, authentic Americana feel.
It was not coincidence, accident or serendipity, either. The video’s director is based in Los Angeles, but is originally from the Whitefish Bay area. “When he found out that Toby was performing in Milwaukee, he said we should shoot the whole video in the Whitefish Bay and Milwaukee areas,” a crew member revealed.
The video for ‘Made in America’ will be complete and viewable at the end of the month. If you life in Cedarburg and were at the parade, perhaps you will be immortalized in the video.
