Tim McGraw: When a concert video is acceptable

Tim McGraw premiered his new video, “Felt Good On My Lips,” on CMT.com today. First thing you need to know: He’s talking about a woman’s name, a song, a drink, and a cherry lipgloss-coated kiss. Secondly, it’s a concert video. Normally I find those a bit boring. This one, however, kept my attention. Because McGraw performs in large venues, in order to keep us experiencing the massive crowd, the camera has to repeatedly shoot McGraw from behind.

Accuse me of objectifying him. You’re right. But if he didn’t want to be admired in those skin-tight jeans, he would’ve a) worn darker denim and b) asked for the footage at the following timecodes to be trimmed: :8, :17, :34, :53, 1:04, 1:34, 2:25, 3:19, 3:35, 3:40, and 3:49.

To the director’s credit, McGraw was actually shot from the waist up a lot, too.

Watch the video below (the song is good, did we mention that?):

So when do you think a concert music video is acceptable?

  • I’m generally okay with concert videos, especially if there’s gratuitous eye candy like the above video, but if you start relying on them too much, it’s so cheap. tim’s had several concert videos in recent years (the cowboy in me, felt good on my lips, don’t take the girl, real good man, last dollar, etc.), so it’s time to be a little more creative in his case. or, at least find some way to make it special.

      I don’t know if I would classify “Dont Take the Girl” as a concert video. IIRC it pretty much follows the “plot” of the song with shots of him singing mixed in. But I agree that he does too much live stuff. Jason Aldean does that, too.

    • Kel

      I agree, – “…” (Would’ve been nice if yo has an actual name, but no matter…). I remember when he said he wanted each of his videos to have a certain art concept unique to all of them. Guess that’s gone out the window. It’s a shame, because those sure were nice.

      Yep I think your rite, but one problem, Tim is going to be out of his contract with curb soon and that can only be a good thing cuz,it obivious they are only using him for money when they can’t afford to make a really good video with lots of story in it, I think Tim will go self-release after this, still love him its not his fault.

  • TJ. Church

    Tim stole this idea from Kenny Chesney.

    • Karrah

      Tim did it way before Kenny did, my friend.

      • Jean

        and looks better in the jeans!

    • Annamarie

      Yeah, I agree with Karrah. Tim was the one responsible for getting Kenny where he is today!

  • PJ

    I almost prefer concert videos as some of the “plot” videos ruin the song because it’s not what one would expect. Also, I’d rather see Keith, Brad and Tim than actors I don’t know.

  • Karrah

    Tim does really well with the concert video. I love the video for “Real Good Man” which is just him performing. At one point he even plops down in a comfy chair to sing it. Also, he does have a pretty great caboose. I kinda love him.

    • Rebecca conn

      O my was that not a good thing. Wat a chair. Lol. Perfect match. Just saying
