Old Dominion is taking the message of girl power seriously in the video for their latest single “Be With Me.” The clip starts out with women talking about themselves and their strength as part of their audition for the video, and the clip is filled with a bunch of strong women and girls lip-syncing along to the song.
“We’ve talked about that song — about it being on the surface and just being kind of a lighthearted song — but it does have this kind of undertone of girl power to it,” Matt Ramsey tells CMT. “A lot of us have daughters. I think that’s kind of an important message that we would like them to take away from it. So our director Steve Condon took that idea and ran with it and surprised us.”
The video even features cameos by the guy’s moms. “We didn’t know that behind our backs, he filmed our mothers,” Matt shares. “It was cool. When we finally saw the finished product, it was very exciting to us all.”
