Shot at Miller’s grandfather GB Miller’s farm in his hometown of Lancaster, Kentucky, the music video features several members of his family, including his mother and father, Brandi and Roger, respectively, among others. In addition to the Miller family, the clip stars super-model/KY basketball TV and radio host, Maria Montgomery as well as various friendly Kentucky locals.
The storyline to the Steve Kinney-filmed music video features Miller and Montgomery, a city girl who doesn’t seem to like the country lifestyle, brought to life the “country boy vs. city girl” concept, perfectly capturing the differences in the characters while also portraying the dichotomy between the beauty of the farm and the realities of rural life.
Alongside the storyline were clips of Miller performing the boot-tapping tune on a barn stage.
“Well, the performance looks really natural thanks to Steve,” Alex recalled as he laughed. “But my dad and I both fell setting things up, and we got banged around pretty good. You’d think the city girl would take the tumble, but oh no … for a farm boy whose first word was ‘tractor,’ I guess I’m pretty clumsy.”
Watch the new music video below.
The clip marks Miller’s first-ever music video.
Co-written Bill Whyte alongside Paul Bogart and Dan Wilson, “Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” is a fast-paced Western Swing tune that finds Miller comparing the country boy lifestyle to the city boy with a love or leave it mentality.
“You got loud horns we got dogs barkin’ / Ain’t gotta pay for no John Deere parkin’ / There’s meat and taters and a lot of fried vittles / If you don’t like that let me tell you a little / Tell you a little thing about that / Don’t let the barn hit ya / Don’t let the barn door hit ya / Don’t let the barn door hit ya / On the way out,” Miller sings in the track’s anthemic chorus.
The Jerry Salley-produced single, recorded at The Gorilla’s Nest, marks Miller’s debut on the Nashville-based label, Billy Jam Records.
“It’s just a great showcase song for Alex,” observes Salley. “It gives him a chance to shine at what he does best – traditional Country – and it is a real reflection of the true artistry this young, refreshing talent brings to the table. We are thrilled to have Alex at Billy Jam.”
“Don’t Let The Barn Door Hit Ya” follows his independently released debut single, “I’m Over You So Get Over Me.”
