Tim McGraw is making his next video, which is also his first video since “Neon Church” was released in 2018, a family affair. McGraw and Faith Hill‘s youngest daughter, Audrey McGraw, will star in the video, along with her famous father. The song is from McGraw’s Here on Earth album, which was released in 2020.
McGraw announced the news on social media.
“Couldn’t be more thrilled to have my youngest daughter, Audrey, play the lead role in the music video for #7500OBO!!!” the singer posted. “Be sure to check out the premiere on [YouTube] this Friday at 5pm CT, and stick around for the YouTube Premium-exclusive afterparty after the video premiere.”

McGraw, who is also a proud dad to daughters Gracie and Maggie, praised Audrey for how well she handled the challenges of her senior year, in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
“We had a drive-thru graduation for Audrey, where we drove through campus, which was really cool,” McGraw said on the Today Show. “Maggie graduated but didn’t have a graduation as well. We were together a little bit. We haven’t all been together during this time, but some of us have been together. I feel for all the parents out there, and all the kids, who didn’t have a graduation. But we tried to make it as fun for them as we could.”
McGraw’s daughter might be appearing in the video for the new song, but his new acting role will include his wife. The couple have been announced as co-stars, playing the Duttons, for the new series, 1883, which also stars Sam Elliott, and is a prequel to Yellowstone.
“This is truly a dream job … The Duttons are tremendous characters and it’s so thrilling to be able to bring them to life,” McGraw says. “As a kid growing up riding horses, you think about dream jobs like this and I am just so excited to work with this amazing cast and crew.”
McGraw recently hinted that there might be more music coming from Hill and him, since he loves how their voices sound together.
“We’re such different artists,” McGraw told BMLG. “Our style is different, the way we sing is different. I mean, she is [an] R&B, just soulful singer. But I think that there’s something that our voices together really work well. I think that there’s a sound that creates. If I can be objective as I can be, there’s sort of a thing that happens with our voices together because they’re so different, because they come from such different places musically, that really works together. I mean that’s what I feel. I feel like when we make a record there’s something that happens voice-wise, sort of like oil and water, that creates this sort of cool combination.”
