Carrie Underwood recently collected the CMT Music Award for the best video of the year, and it didn’t take her long to give us a candidate for next year’s ceremony. The country princess showed the world that she’s still on the top of her game with playful visual for “Southbound”.
This music video is the very definition of summer fun, and it shows Underwood having a blast with her closest friends, enjoying her time on the road, and being chased by her son Isaiah with a water gun.
The music video for “Southbound” perfectly reflects the happy-go-lucky sound of this party anthem, but the country star admitted it was pretty difficult to put it together while discussing her latest album Cry Pretty in an interview with CMT last year.
“I don’t know if there was one specific line that was the hardest to write, but there was a song called ‘Southbound,’ that was kind of surprisingly hard to write for being just a fun light song,” admitted Carrie Underwood.
