Tim McGraw Debuts 'Highway Don't Care' Music Video Feat. Taylor Swift and Keith Urban

May 07, 2013 09:48:27 GMT


It's been two months since Tim McGraw's new country ballad "Highway Don't Care" leaked online before the much-awaited music video was finally unveiled today. But it's truly worth the wait as the Shane C. Drake-directed masterpiece is a fitting visual accompaniment to McGraw's smashing hit from his "Two Lanes of Freedom" album.

The five-minute-and-a-half long clip cinematically tells the storyline that casts McGraw as a Vanderbilt University Medical Center doctor, but that piece of information is surprisingly revealed only towards the end of the video as he attends to a female car crash victim. McGraw's co-star can be quickly assumed to be his love interest in the story as both appear to be exchanging messages on their phones throughout most of the video, with him at home and her on the highway, before she crashes.
