Eric Church has done it again with the help of Mickey Smay, of course.
Smay stars alongside Church in Church’s new video for “Round Here Buzz.” Previously, he was in Church’s “Mr. Misunderstood” and “Record Year” videos.
It’s been a couple of years since we first met Smay on the cover of Church’s surprise Mr. Misunderstood album and he’s aged enough to play a believable part in the new video, which recounts the story of high school flames that burned out as one left town and the other hasn’t ever been east of Dallas.
The most brilliant thing about this video isn’t just that Church found another role for Smay, but that he’s not trying to convince you that he’s the parking lot down and outer– he’s just the subtle narrator of a story every single person knows.
