The Fifth Annual Music Video Madness: Round One

Vote for your favorite star's music video in the fifth installment of this yearly fan-supported poll!

The fifth Annual Video Madness tournament is underway and for this year we have 16 competing videos from all levels of country stars, from superstars (Reba, Luke Bryan) Rising stars (Logan Mize, Maddie & Tae) to upcoming stars (Casey James, Tyler Farr) and Americana/Roots star (Old Crow Medicine Show). While last year we had a play-in round, this year we return to a true "Sweet 16" model. We will see these games voted for through Friday at 7AM. Friday Afternoon, we'll have Round 2 (Elite Eight) which will run through the weekend. Then next week will see the final 4 and then the final game over the following weekend.

The Music Video Madness Contenders

There are four regions with two games in each region: the Southeast (Old Crow Medicine Show “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer” VS. Olivia Lane “Steal Me Away” AND Mitchell Tenpennny “Black Crow” VS. Tyler Farr “A Guy Walks Into A Bar”), the Northeast Home Free - “What We Ain’t Got” VS. Karli Whetstone - “Frozen” AND Luke Bryan “Spring Breakdown” VS. The Swon Brothers - “Pray For You”), the Southwest (Logan Mize “Can’t Get Away From A Good Time” VS.Blackberry Smoke “Too High” AND Humming House “Frozen” VS. Maddie & Tae “Fly”) and the Northwest (Casey James “Fall Apart” VS. Franke Ballard “Young & Crazy” AND Sam Hunt “Take Your Time” VS Reba “Going Out Like That”).

How Music Video Madness Works

The Bracket will have the winners of the 8 games going to an Elite Eight set up over this coming weekend Until we get to a Final Four which will have the Southeast region winner facing off against the Northeast region winner while the Southwest region winner will face the Northwest region winner. Finally, the final two winners will battle to see who will follow  Craig Campbell, Andy Gibson, Aaron Lewis and Robby Johnson in being crowned the winner of the Roughstock's Fifth Annual Music Video Madness.

We ask that you view each music video before voting and that you choose a favorite. You can vote as much as you want but you MUST vote for each of the 8 games in round one.
