Songwriter-artist trio Nashvillains hit the back roads of Tennessee in their new “Who Don’t” music video. The group say the clip, which aired exclusively on The Boot, allowed them to build on their country roots.
Directed by Brian Vaughn and shot in Franklin, Tennessee, the video shows the band experiencing it at a field party, captivating a crowd with their performance – or is that a dream? Eagle-eyed viewers will spot Steve Dorff, who produced the song, and country rapper Big Smo, a friend of the band, as well as the son of Nashville member Troy Johnson … and gorgeous classic cars.
“This video really shows the energy of a Nashville performance and a quick glimpse into our country boy roots,” says band member Brett Boyett. “We had an amazing time growing up with Brian and his crew. There’s nothing quite like cruising in a Caddy on a back road in Tennessee, and we’re really proud of how the video turned out.”
The video ends with a tribute to the late songwriter Andrew Dorff – Steve’s son – who co-wrote “Who Don’t” with Old Dominion’s Brad Tursi and Corey Crowder. The youngest Dorff died in 2016, at the age of 40.
“It took a good part of the year to select my favorite songs from Andrew’s catalog. The legacy is in his songs, and I work really hard to try and maintain that – his catalog continues to live and breathe. “says Steve Dorff. “” Who Don’t “is the one that I always felt like addicted to and that could be a hit with the right artist. I always say that what makes a success is this marriage between a song and an artist, the right song and the right voice. “
Nashvillains – Colorado native Boyett, Texas native Johnson and Kentucky native Scott Lindsey – collectively had their songs cut by Trace Adkins, James Taylor and many more. Boyett and Lindsey first met during a writing session; Boyett then recruited Lindsey for the group after learning they shared a publishing company.
