Blake Shelton Posts Behind-the-Scenes Clips of Dangerous Video Shoot
Last month, The Voice coach Blake Shelton debuted the music video for his song “Come Back as a Country Boy.” He recently shared a few behind-the-scenes clips from the video shoot on his Instagram, showing some of the risky situations he put himself in to get the perfect shot.
Blake Shelton Shares Dangerous Behind-the-Scenes Clips
Part of the “Come Back as a Country Boy” video involves Shelton emerging from a bonfire. The fire was real, and Shelton performed right next to it. “I can be in fire and just shake it off,” the star joked in a clip from the set.
In the behind-the-scenes video, Shelton can be seen getting up and hurrying away from the fire, cursing. “If you saw me almost catch on fire… you didn’t,” Shelton wrote to caption the clip on Instagram.
In another clip, Shelton explains that the video’s director Sophie Muller had the idea for him to stand on the edge of a cliff. “The things I do for Sophie and my music videos,” Shelton said, as he pretended to lose his balance and almost fall. He wrote in the caption that he needs a stunt double for these shots.
Shelton Says His Music Video Has Never Been Done Before
“I wanted the video to be what I wanted it to be, and so we had to implement some things that maybe have never been seen in a country music video before,” Shelton explains in another behind-the-scenes clip. “I don’t know if that’s true … but I will tell you there were some people there that I’ve never seen at video shoots before, saying things that I’ve never heard.”
The clip shows Shelton performing in front of a green screen, interacting with things that aren’t there. He said he was determined to do it “no matter how stupid I feel,” adding that he hoped the people involved in the video would “make it look cool.”
Unfortunately, Shelton’s fellow The Voice coach Ariana Grande missed her chance to star in the music video, but the show recently shared her audition tape for the gig. Maybe next time Shelton will have a part for her.
