She’s starring in a new music video for the 80 For Brady film, alongside the likes of Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry.
Released a few days ago, you see the country queen open up the song “Gonna Be You,” which was written by Diane Warren, wearing a #12 New England Patriots jersey (Tom’s old team), and singing with her friends as they run through different shots of the film.
In a statement, Cindi says she was thrilled to be part of this project and work with some of her closest friends in the music business:
“This was such a great project to be part of because it was nice to be able to join forces with my pals for the song. Each of these women mean a lot to me.
Friendships between women are important and I think Diane’s lyrics captured that. It was really touching. You don’t often see female ‘buddy movies’ so this was fun.”
Dolly added how much fun it was to work with a few old friends and actresses she goes way back with, including Jane Fonda (9 to 5) and Sally Field (Steel Magnolias):
“I’m so excited to be a part of 80 for Brady and the Diane Warren title song for it. Working with Jane, Lily, and Sally Field again, my older pals that are in the movie, and then working with all the wonderful artists on the song and video, like Belinda Carlisle, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry was a joy.
This is very exciting to me. I love feeling like I’m still part of something great and being with those gals that we know are great was a thrill.”
The new movie is based on a true story of four best friends who promised each other they’d live life to the fullest, and trekked to Super Bowl LI in 2017 to watch their hero, Mr. Tom Brady, play in the big game.
The Patriots did end up winning the Super Bowl that year, famously overcoming a 28–3 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons.
The movie stars Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field, and seven-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady (who also served as a producer) will make an appearance.
80 For Brady will be out in theaters on February 3rd, the week before this year’s Super Bowl 57 in Glendale, Arizona.
