Nashville and Hollywood are quite different, but the two worlds collide more often than not.
Several country artists have enlisted the help of mainstream celebrities to star in their music videos. While some appeared before they got their big breaks, others were cast long after their names became well-known within the entertainment industry.
Here are nine country music videos with celebrity cameos.
Brad Paisley – “Celebrity”
Brad Paisley just might be the king of music video cameos. While he has several videos that feature stars, the 2003 “Celebrity” music video features a number of famous faces, including William Shatner, Jason Alexander, Trista Sutter, and Jim Belushi.
Trisha Yearwood – “Walkaway Joe”
Before his breakout performance in Dazed and Confused, Matthew McConaughey starred in Trisha Yearwood’s 1992 video for “Walkaway Joe.” Surprisingly, it’s not his only tie to country music. A Texas native, McCounaughey has shown his appreciation for country music with several appearances at the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Awards.
Toby Keith – “Crash Here Tonight”
Toby Keith’s 2006 video for “Crash Here Tonight” features Melrose Place star Heather Locklear. Though Keith usually is not the type to release a romantic single, the video features the two getting quite cozy with a guitar, some candles and a bottle of wine.
Dixie Chicks – “Goodbye Earl”
You may know Jane Krakowski from her run on 30 Rock, but do you remember her starring in the Dixie Chicks’ video for “Goodbye Earl?” Krakowski stars as Wanda, the victim of Earl’s domestic abuse. Her friend Mary Ann, played by actress Lauren Holly, comes to help her devise a plan to stop Earl’s abuse.
Rascal Flatts – “Why Wait”
Rascal Flatts’ 2010 video for “Why Wait” spoofs the comedy film The Hangover. If they were going to spoof a Hollywood movie, they needed a Hollywood star to help them. Scream star David Arquette stars alongside the country trio as they embark on a wild Vegas trip.
Zac Brown Band – “Colder Weather”
Billy Ray Cyrus and Miley Cyrus aren’t Liam Hemsworth’s only connection to country music. The actor starred as the main character in Zac Brown Band’s snowy 2010 video for “Colder Weather.”
Lady Antebellum – “Bartender”
Model Kate Upton and Veep star Tony Hale make an unlikely, but hilarious pairing in the music video for Lady Antebellum’s smash “Bartender.” After rallying for a night out with her girlfriends, Lady A’s Hillary Scott included, Upton antagonizes bartender Hale for round after round of shots to get over the pain of her broken heart. Does Upton make it through the night unscathed or does Hale’s drinks get the better of her? Watch to find out!
Brett Eldredge – “The Long Way”
Brett Eldredge is well-known for his romantic tunes and his single “The Long Way” is no different. The Illinois native enlisted the help of Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson to act as his love interest in the steamy clip. Fans were convinced the two were dating after catching a glimpse of their onscreen chemistry.
Chris Janson – “Fix A Drink”
There are no Hollywood actors in this video, but there are quite a few famous faces! Chris Janson got help from his buddies Luke Bryan, Dustin Lynch, Michael Ray, and Chris Lucas (LOCASH) for his feel-good summer music video for “Fix A Drink.”

Recently it has been discovered that a fiddle belonging to the late great King Of Country music, Mr. Roy Acuff, has been donated to GOOD WILL for auction.
Instead of this musical instrument being donated to the COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME for the world to view, it has been offered to the highest bidder.
What will be next that is sent to the auction block? Hank Williams Cadillac? Patsy Cline’s wig?

The Bible says, ‘Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him’ (Jeremiah 17:7). To succeed at whatever God calls you to do, you must learn to be confident – not self-confident, but confident in Christ. Paul was brilliant, but he said, ‘I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency.’ Jesus said, ‘…without Me you can do nothing’ (John 15:5). It seems to take forever to learn this truth. Much of our frustration comes from misplaced confidence. Paul says, ‘Put no confidence in the flesh’ (Philippians 3:3). Now, he wasn’t saying you aren’t supposed to trust anyone. He was saying if you give others or yourself the trust that belongs to God alone, you won’t succeed. He won’t let you! To succeed at anything you must have confidence, but it must be confidence in God. You must believe that He wants you to succeed. You may fail on your way to success, but if you trust God, He will take your mistakes and cause them to work out for your good (See Romans 8:28). Sometimes our confidence is shaken when trials come, especially if they’re lengthy. When this happens you must do what David did: He ‘encouraged and strengthened himself in the Lord’ (1 Samuel 30:6). When David had no one else to believe in him, he believed in himself. He also believed in God’s ability to work through him. One Bible teacher says, ‘The Lord told me that if I didn’t believe in myself, I really didn’t believe in Him. He said, “I am in you, but I can only do through you, what you believe Me for.”’ Think about it.
Prayer Heavenly Father,
Help me to only put confidence in You so that I can have the confidence I need
to do what You would have me do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
