Watch the Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban “Highway Don’t Care” Video That Brings Rudy to Tears
The new Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban collaboration was just released and it caught me by surprise. As I watched, it was becoming pretty predictable. The story follows a girl who is upset, jumps in her car with cell phone in hand and as she's driving she's constantly distracted by text messages. As I anticipated, she is in an accident, but that's where all the predictability ends.
The video now takes a couple of strange twists and this is where I found myself crying like I did at the end of the movie "The Notebook." McGraw tells MusicRow.com "I got the idea from my daughter, who is 16-years-old and just got her driver’s license. Initially we didn’t start out to make this video into a public service announcement, but as it developed and I started realizing that I have two teenage daughters, I didn’t mind being preachy.”

My hope is that everyone that watches this video will keep in mind the real dangers of texting and driving. Distracted driving accidents are on the rise in America, they account for the majority of fatalities among young Americans under the age of thirty. What are your thoughts on this video? Comment below.
