RCA Nashville chart-topper [lastfm]Chris Young[/lastfm] is among the favorite men selected as Country’s Hottest Guys in the July issue of People Country, in addition to being named Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year at the 22nd Annual Music Row Magazine Awards last month. Following his top hit songs “Gettin’ You Home” (The Black Dress Song) and “The Man I Want To Be” here is his latest video for “Voices” featuring Chris’ real life family!
The song “Voices” was inspired by something very close to the singer’s heart — his family. When it came time to discuss treatments for the video, Chris knew that he didn’t want to hire actors. “The more I thought about it, the more I was like I don’t want to not use my family in this,” Chris tells The Boot. “We pulled it together and made it happen. Somebody needs to go hug David McClister, because he was the director on the video. He put up with me and my whole family the whole day! Everybody was in it — my grandparents, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, my mom and my dad.”
The only member of the family who was unable to attend the shoot in person was Chris’ sister, Dot, who recently enlisted in the U.S. Marines. Chris, however, made sure he found a way to make Dot’s presence known in the video. “There’s a shot of me picking up a picture of Dot that I’m going to make sure gets in the final cut of the video,” Chris says sweetly. “So she’s still in the video. It was pretty cool.”
