If you’re a Reba McEntire fan, chances are you’ve heard her song “Just Like Them Horses” and you’ve seen the music video that goes with it. So, you probably already know that she gets really personal in both of them. After all, the song is a tribute to her late father, Clark McEntire.
While the actual video opens up with a powerful soliloquy sewn together by black-and-white clips, we can only gather so much as to how difficult it had to be for her to make.
Lucky for us, Reba gives fans a first-glimpse behind-the-scenes look into the making of the video. Shot in Chockie Mountain, Oklahoma, a place that Reba calls home, the majestic landscape and galloping horses is something to take our breath away, but it’s what Reba says near the end of the clip that has us holding back our tears.
“This video probably means more to me than any video I’ve ever gotten to shoot, because this song was really a family song,” says Reba.
She then goes onto say that she played the song at her father’s funeral. That it’s a cowboy song, and her daddy was a cowboy. “Just Like Them Horses”, which she holds so dear to her heart is the third single off of Reba’s 27th studio album Love Somebody.
