Sugarland drops a teaser for its "Babe" music video. The 31-second clip features a red-headed Taylor Swift, who also happens to be the writer of the track.
The trailer for "Babe" premiered at the 2018 Country Music Awards this week. It features Jennifer Nettles, whose pretend husband, Brandon Routh, is cheating on her with Swift.
The music video for "Babe" is set in the 1960s. It opens with Nettles walking at the grocery store. Swift is shown next walking inside a room while in her all-red ensemble. In the next cut-to-cut scenes, Nettles kisses Routh and bids him goodbye. They also dine at the table, but it seems that the image just transpired in Nettles' imagination.
Elsewhere in the clip, Routh bonds and flirts with Swift. The theme of "Babe" confirms that the woman knows about her husband's infidelity and has decided to leave him. The full music video for the track will be released on Saturday, June 9.
Sugarland Reveals How Taylor Swift Got Involved With 'Babe'
In April, Sugarland dished on Swift's involvement with its new song. Nettles revealed that the "Red" singer was the one that reached out to them.
"We [have] obviously known each other for many years. When she was first getting started we had just had our first title EP out called Premium Quality Tunes. She still has a copy of it that we signed for her whenever we played a couple of shows together. She was excited we were getting back together and reached out..." said Nettles.
Kristian Bush added that Sugarland is not used to including songs written by other artists in their album. This is the reason why they kept the collaboration a secret until after they finished it. Bush was pleased to know that Swift liked the track because he thinks it is a good song.
"Babe" will be included in Sugarland's forthcoming album Bigger, which will be available on Friday, June 8.
The other songs in the compilation are "Bigger," "On a Roll," "Let Me Remind You," "Mother," "Still the Same," "Lean it on Back," "Bird in a Cage," "Love Me Like I'm Leaving," "Tuesday's Broken," and "Not the Only."
Sugarland is an American country music duo made up of Nettles and Bush. It was founded in 2002 by Kristen Hall and Bush and became a trio after Nettles was hired.
Some of the duo's most popular songs are "Stay," "Stuck Like Glue," "All I Want to Do," "Something More," "Baby Girl," and more.
