We’ve had dreams where all of our favorite country superstars got together to sing a few legendary country songs and star in a music video that showed off their talents, beauty and love for the genre that has changed our lives.
Well, it’s no longer a dream.
In a “Good Morning America” exclusive on Sept. 16, country fans got their first look at the music video for the song everyone is talking about.
As part of the celebration surrounding “The 50th Annual CMA Awards,” “Forever Country” features 30 of today’s biggest country superstars singing a medley of three of country music’s biggest hits, including John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”
“CMA has created the biggest music video in country music history,” a press release touted.
From Luke Bryan to Tim McGraw and Miranda Lambert to Carrie Underwood, it’s an epic project that is sure to make history before it’s over. The song itself premiered Sept. 16 in a virtual radio roadblock across the country and around the world. The full-length video will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 20.
“‘Forever Country’ is a moving tribute to country music, country music fans and the artists who have built this format into what it is today,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer in a recent press release. “This music video is the product of the CMA Board of Directors who came together in support of this project as a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the CMA Awards, a statement on the heritage and future of the country music industry, and a reflection of this year’s awards theme – ‘Then. Now. Forever Country.’”
