Well this one will heat things up…
Back in October, Justin Moore released the second single off of his as-of-yet-unannounced upcoming album, a duet with Priscilla Block called “You, Me & Whiskey.”
The steamy song talks about rekindling the spark that’s faded from a romance as time has gone on, taking things back to a time when it was just the two of them – and a bottle of whiskey:
It was you, me, and whiskey all night long
Sinkin’ to the bottom of them country songs
Fire burnin’ hot ’til the last drop’s gone
Let’s turn it up, turn it up
‘Til we take that black label buzz too far
And say them things that stay in the dark
Ain’t nothin’ as sweet, ain’t nothin’ as strong
As you, me, and whiskey all night long
Yeah, that’ll get the juices flowing…
And now they’ve dropped a video for the steamy love song – and this one’ll get you all hot and bothered.
Directed by Cody Villalobos, a member of Justin’s management team who’s also directed his videos for “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home” and “Why We Drink,” the video was shot in and around Nashville. (And if you look close, you might see a certain writer for Whiskey Riff in the background of the bar scenes…)
As Cody told us in an exclusive interview, it was actually Justin who wanted to make the video even more sexy:
“This video was actually pretty collaborative between us. Justin first came to me with the start of an idea that was fairly vague: He wanted the story to take place in a cabin, with a cold environment.
That initial idea evolved between us back and forth for a few days into a fiery love story about a mid-thirties couple using whiskey to reignite their lost flame. Every version of the treatment I wrote and sent to him, he would send it back asking me to push the sexiness further and further.
Him pushing me to make it hotter, coupled with the flashbacks, makes for a steamy visual that pairs nicely with a smash song!”
And the video also contains similarities to another – albeit completely different – video of Justin’s:
“My favorite element to the video is definitely the flashbacks the couple are having. Each moment in the kitchen they catch a glimpse of what used to be, and I think it’s a really cool element to have, thanks to my production team who helped me pull off those frames pretty well.
The flashback element was also a sort of ode to a previous video I did with Justin, “The Ones That Didn’t Make It Back Home,” which is a flash/dream into everyone’s worst fears of their line of duty. So I’m excited to keep that similarity amongst these JM videos!”
Might wanna cover the kids’ eyes before you put this one on…
