If the line-dancing craze from the nineties makes a comeback, you'll be able to thank -- or blame -- Keith Urban.
Keith’s new video, “Never Comin Down,” takes place mainly on the dance floor, following a shy everyman who makes his way into a club where the Aussie superstar is playing. By the end of the clip, the cap-wearing protagonist is in the middle of the crowd, mastering the steps to a hipped-up version of a line dance.
Keith says the song “Never Comin’ Down” “captures the energy and spirit of being at a show -- lost in the music, along with everyone else that’s there, whether you know them or not.” He says that’s the feeling he wanted to capture in the video.
He enlisted director Carter Smith -- and a troupe of happy dancers -- to help him.
“In casting, we took the people that were happiest to be themselves -- whatever that was,” Smith explains. “We brought in voguers, break dancers, hip-hop dancers -- line dancers -- everybody’s dancing together for this one song, on this one night.”
You can check out the “Never Comin’ Down” video -- and maybe pick up a few new steps -- on YouTube.
