While we don’t keep an eagle eye on the country music scene, sometimes we do find our beloved bluegrassers popping up in what Nashville dishes out.
The new video from singer Laura Bell Bundy occasions just such a discovery. In promoting her current single, Kentucky Dirty, Bundy wanted some real Kentucky bluegrass to be pictured in the video, just as you can hear some banjo tinkling in the background of the song. As the director of the video, she had full reign over content, so she hooked up with Daily & Vincent to provide just the right feel.
Is that a tad racy for Jamie and Darrin?
In addition to D&V regulars Jeff Parker, B.J. Cherryholmes, and Jessie Baker, Seth Taylor is pictured in the video on guitar.
This “behind the scenes” video shows the music video being staged and shot, and includes Laura’s comments about how much she admires Dailey & Vincent – and UK sports.
Kentucky Dirty isn’t the first time she’s bathed her music in five string goodness. Giddy On Up, her debut single in 2010, used banjo as the primary rhythm instrument for much of the song, and the video demonstrated her song-and-dance background.
Ms. Bundy took a circuitous and non-traditional route to Nashville. Showing a precocious talent for the stage as a child, she started acting in regional theatre productions before she got to high school, worked as a model as a teen, and was appearing in national television and films just out of high school. She began a successful string of Broadway appearances in her twenties, including a year in the lead role as Elle Woods in Legally Blond: The Musical. She also appears alongside Charlie Sheen in his new television show, Anger Management.
