Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Paul Boyd and premiered in January 2007. It was filmed in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. It is a fairly simple video, featuring the duo Jennifer Nettles singing into a microphone performing the song against an all-white moving background on a rotating swivel circular stage with a full band. During the second verse, audience members are revealed and sing and dance to the song as the duo perform.
