Rascal Flatts got to do some acting and throw a few friends into the video for their latest hit, “Yours If You Want It.” The clip, which premiered across Entertainment Weekly and People ‘s websites beginning Thursday, March 16th and was also premiered at the Nashville diner at which it was filmed yesterday morning for a group of industry insiders. The video was shot at the Hermitage Cafe in downtown Nashville, the same spot that the group held their very first photo shoot more than 17 years ago.
Rascal Flatts enlisted friend Billy Zabka (Karate Kid, Most), who previously collaborated on their “Why Wait” music video, to direct the video. Gary Levox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney transformed into diner employees, as actors Kevin Farley (The Waterboy, Still The King) and Kristy Swanson (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The Chase) surprise viewers with a whirlwind romance.
Gary said, “We had so much fun filming this video, and I think that really shows when you watch it back. The three of us are always joking around so when our good friend Billy came up with the idea for us to actually work at the diner where Kevin and Kristy’s scene is playing out, we definitely went for it! The atmosphere on set was amazing and hopefully everyone enjoys watching it as much as we did making it.”
Rascal Flatts will release their 10th studio album, Back To Us, on May 19th.
