JT Hodges has released his new music video for his latest single, “Already High.” Directed by Mason Dixon, the one take, live action video was shot on location in Nashville, and features cameo appearances by several guest celebrities, including NFL football players and fellow recording artists.
“This video was fun for me to do for several reasons,” Hodges says. “First, I got to hang out with lots of friends at a bar, so how can that be a bad thing? We even had to take a break and hunker down when one of those wild Tennessee summer storms blew through. Next, I got to work really closely with Mason in conceptualizing this video. I wanted it to have a light hearted, fun feel to it and look like a typical night out on the town, except here, I’m just trying to say goodnight to my buddies and get home to my really hot wife! Luckily, I convinced my really hot wife Kasey to play that role in my video. It took a lot of pleading, but I finally got her to say yes.”
In addition to his wife Kasey, Hodges’ video features another family member -- his Australian shepherd, Dax. “Dax didn’t take a lot of convincing and works for peanuts, or should I say jerky treats,” jokes Hodges. “This is old hat to him, as he’s already had a role in a movie called The Sophisticates. He loved being on set because there were so many new people to get attention from. He's such a ham.”
Fans watching the video can look for cameo appearances from Michael Roos and Brian Schwenke of the Tennessee Titans, Ryan Seymour of the 49er’s, Tim Fugger of the Jets, Wesley Johnson of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Matchbox 20's Kyle Cook, Love and Theft's Stephen Liles Barker, American Young's Jon Stone, Joshua Jones, Whitney Duncan, and Driver Williams of Eric Church’s band.
