Sugarland Takes Fans Behind the Scenes of ‘Babe’ Video
Where can you find sweet cars, vintage fashion and beautiful people?
Look no further than Sugarland's "Babe" music video. While the official version was released in June 2018, the country duo recently followed up with a behind-the-scenes look. Focused mostly on the stunning looks of Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles (who's dressed in brilliant '60s garb), the new video gives a little more context to the "Babe" story.
"The concept is a married couple, who we think is the perfect married couple—and then we find out that the husband is a cheating cad," says actor Brandon Routh, who plays Nettles' husband in the video.
Written by Taylor Swift and Patrick Monahan of Train, "Babe" also features Swift's background vocals throughout the song—and she even stars in the official video as the redheaded secretary that Nettles' "husband" is cheating with (Swift, unfortunately, doesn't appear in the behind-the-scenes video).
Nettles notes in the clip that the music video was filmed on the same set as popular AMC series Mad Men, and her counterpart Kristian Bush speaks of how fun the 1960s concept of the video was.
Nettles tells People that the idea for the video originally came from Swift: "She actually reached out to us and said, 'I've got a great idea for a video,' and she wrote the treatment," she explains.
"Babe" is included on Sugarland's 2018 album Bigger, and has so far peaked at No.19 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
