Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Jake Owen, Wynonna + More Featured in Viral Version of Little Big Town’s ‘Pontoon’ [VIDEO]
Let’s face it, Little Big Town’s new single, ‘Pontoon’ is a fun, catchy tune. If you’ve heard it once, you probably know most of the words. But you’re not alone. ‘Pontoon’ has caught on with some of the biggest country music stars, and there’s video evidence.
Luke Bryan, the Pistol Annies, Darius Rucker, Jake Owen and Sara Evans are among those featured on this funny video that may very well surpass the official ‘Pontoon’ video in popularity. The original video already has 4 million views in less than three months on YouTube, but the all-star version has been up for less than a week and is already approaching 100,000 views.
It’s fun to see the lighter side of our favorite entertainers, and that’s what this video delivers. It opens with Luke Bryan doing his ‘warm up’ into a studio microphone, and that pretty much sets the tone for the entire video.
While it’s almost painful to watch Rucker dance, he makes up for it with his infectious laugh at the end. You also get to see the Eli Young Band lounging around (and in) a plastic kiddie pool, Bryan doing some sort of ‘fishin’ dance’, Carrie Underwood performing the song at a concert, and many more cameo appearances. Check it out, and see if you can name them all.
‘Pontoon’ is the first radio single released from Little Big Town’s upcoming CD ‘Tornado,’ which comes out on Sept. 11. With such a popular and catchy single leading the way, I don’t guess it will take too long for ‘Tornado’ to get to the top of the country album charts.
In all fairness, we should show the original ‘Pontoon’ video, too. After all, it gives us another excuse to listen to the song!
