Finally, we know what all those #ForeverCountry videos on Instagram are all about!
In celebration of The 50th Annual CMA Awards, CMA has created the biggest music video in Country Music history. Titled “Forever Country,” the single and accompanying music video features 30 CMA Award-winning acts. This single was produced by CMA Board member and CMA Award winner Shane McAnally and the video was directed by Grammy Award-winning director Joseph Kahn.
The music video is set to an intricate medley of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” All are former CMA Entertainers of the Year.
In another historic move, the single will be unveiled to the public Friday, Sept. 16 in a global roadblock across Country radio, premiering on hundreds of radio stations simultaneously at 8:30 AM/ET across the U.S., in addition to premiering in key international markets. But fans will have to wait a few more days to see the full length music video; the video will make its worldwide premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 20.
So far, Trisha Yearwood, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Dierks Bentley, Reba McEntire, Keith Urban, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Alabama, Luke Bryan and Charley Pride have posted #ForeverCountry videos which are all viewable at ForeverCountry50.com.
