Set in a bar while Hubbard performs “Dancin’ In The Country,” Crews and his group of biker friends walk in and immediately the unexpected occurs on the dance floor in an extraordinary “bar fight.”
“This video is unlike any video that I’ve ever been a part of,” says Hubbard. “We had the ultimate heavy hitter with Terry Crews on set – he was made for a video like this. One minute, he looked like he was ready to punch a hole in the wall, and the next, he’s got the entire room laughing, just being himself. Terry is one of those guys that everyone wants to be around, and he was just perfect for this video.” Adds Hubbard, “Terry and the dancers brought the choreography to life and were able to tell the story through their amazing dancing.”
“I was so excited to be asked to do this video with Tyler and when I saw the concept, I thought there was no one else that could pull this off,” says Crews. “This video is like a three-minute touchdown celebration, and it was so great to be a part of. For Tyler to allow me to represent something he wrote from his heart means a lot and I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”
“Dancin’ In The Country” is featured on Tyler’s self-titled solo debut album, Tyler Hubbard, which will be available next Friday (January 27th).

Tyler Hubbard (DITC video) OC: …special day overall. :36
“My reaction to the whole thing was just amazement. You know, I have such an infatuation with dancers and watching them be able to move like the way they move and so fluid and again, bring the song to life and to add that extra element and the dynamic of dancing and the whole concept of the bad biker gang coming in. You think there’s gonna be this brawl and then they’re all of a sudden turning into a big dance battle, it’s a good time. I just sat there and watched in amazement most of the day at the talent that was in front of the camera and behind the camera. So, it was just a special day overall.”
Terry Crews (Tyler DITC) 1 OC: …Thank you. :33
“Working with Tyler has been such a pleasure. You know, representing a song is a very important thing, because for him to let me represent something he wrote from his heart means a lot, because people will always tie you into it. And I feel so welcome, I feel so just at ease being here. I feel like a part of the family, and I’ve got to thank Tyler. He’s a superstar, and it’s so, so good to be here in Nashville doing it for real. This is how it’s done, and I love it! Thank you.”
Terry Crews (Tyler DITC) 2 OC: …it was. (2x) :53
“This is the thing. I love music. I love country. I love rock. I love blues. I love it all, and this is one reason I host AGT because all different styles come through there and I support talent. And when I got asked to be in a country music video with Tyler Hubbard, I was sitting there like, and what was funny is that everybody that when I told them, they were like, ‘Tyler? Really? Do it! Do it!’ I was like, ‘Oh yeah, I know I’m gonna do it!’ And it was so surprising because you wonder what they want you to do and then when I saw the concept, I was like there’s nobody else I felt that could really pull this off, but me. You know what I mean? (TYLER: “He was made for this.”) I already knew. I knew it. I felt the pull, and they did a great job convincing me that it was gonna be done really well, and it was. It was.”
