The Funniest Country Music Videos?

Donna Hughes over at The Boot has done a rundown of what she considers the ten funniest country music videos of all-time.

It’s an interesting list. I think the Luke Bryan clip is funny, but so many of her choices rely on stunt casting.  I think she left off a few great ones.

Here are a few of my favorites that didn’t make the list:

Alan Jackson, “That’d Be Alright”

The fourth wall is completely disregarded here, in a meta send-up of country music videos as an art form that even pokes fun at Jackson’s own CMA nomination for Music Video.

Junior Brown, “My Wife Thinks You’re Dead”

This actually won the CMA award for Music Video in 1996.

Shania Twain, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”

So many people missed the humor in Twain’s work. This gender role reversal video is brilliant, managing to satirize the blatant sexism in the classic Robert Palmer clip while also paying tongue-in-cheek homage to it.

Matraca Berg & Friends, “Back in the Saddle”

There’s more talent in the back of that paddy wagon than country radio has seen in more than a decade.

Thompson Brothers Band, “Back on the Farm”

Because there aren’t enough talking animals in country music videos.

  1. I’ll have to come back later when I have time to watch all of these videos (many of which I haven’t seen). But for now, I’ll just throw out a couple of my faves.

    Pam Tillis, “Cleopatra, Queen of Denial”

    Patty Loveless, “I Try to Think About Elvis”

    Reba McEntire, “Why Haven’t I Heard from You”

    I’m sure five or ten more great ones will pop into my head as soon as I’ve closed out my browser, but they’ll have to wait.

  2. Good call on “My Wife Thinks You’re Dead.” I also got a kick out of Brown’s “Venom Wearin’ Denim” video, but if I had to pick one it’d be “Wife.” I am stunned that neither list includes Deana Carter’s classic “Did I Shave My Legs for This” video!

  3. I like #’s 1 and 2 on the Hughes list. I also like Terri Clark’s “Girls Lie Too” video. If you’re old enough to remember Wayne Newton, it’s even funnier. Another favorite is Diffie’s “If the Devil Danced in Empty Pockets”.

  4. The video where Toby Keith is trying to brick up a wall with his wife behind it, but it backfires and he bricks himself up!! Hilarious! Can’t think of the name of the song at the moment! Can someone help me out?? Is it As Good As I Once Was??

  5. “A Little Too Late” with the brick wall.

    My favorite videos by Toby are “As Good As I Once Was, Trailerhood, Stays In Mexico”.

  6. Brad Paisley – “Online”
    Brad Paisley – “Celebrity”
    Ricky Skaggs – “Honey (Open That Door)”
    Patty Loveless – “Try To Think About Elvis”
    Johnny Cash – “One Piece At A TIme”
