Luke Bryan just released the video for “Light It Up”, the lead single from his upcoming album, What Makes You Country. The video stars NBA player, Jimmy Butler, who played for the Chicago Bulls for years, and now plays for the Minnesota Wild.
Butler posted a teaser of the video yesterday.
Butler plays a man that is waiting on his spouse to respond to an apology text from him. “I open my eyes, reach for the phone / Not a word from you baby / It don’t leave my sight since we had that fight,”. The video follows him as he continues on with his game, post-game interviews, and into the rest of his night.
Butler is a huge country music fan, having attended several Luke Bryan shows. He also was recorded warming up to a little Florida Georgia Line a couple years ago.
He got the chance to meet up with the guys earlier this year.
Luke’s new album What Makes You Country is coming out on December 8th, and you can pre-order it here. He’s been asking his fans “what makes them country”? In this video, he plays along, himself.
