The singer’s music video was shot on campus at his school, North Carolina State University — a lush and beautiful campus. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Roman White, the ‘See You Tonight’ shoot appeared to be super relaxed and stress-free, thanks to McCreery’s laid-back personality and White’s talent and experience.
“It’s a cool concept, I’m glad that we’re shooting it here — at my college,” reveals the young country singer. “It’s a cool thing for me to be here, at home, doing it.”
This marks the first time he’s had his band in a music video, which McCreery says he was pumped about, and White joked with the band, “It’s important you don’t suck tonight.” McCreery shares that he loved working with White, saying, “He’s a funny dude, but he’s top of the line.”
When the singer wasn’t behind the mic, lip-syncing to his lyrics, he was the picture of poise, never looking harried or frustrated or shouting out demands. We should have known he’d handle everything with ease, as he brushed off a recent onstage fall with humor.
Although he’s only 19 years old (with a birthday on Oct. 9), McCreery’s maturity is well beyond his years. His sophomore album will be available on Oct. 15.
