Bucky Covington had a blast with Shooter Jennings last week on the set of his new music video for their duet “Drinking Side Of Country.” The video, which will premiere in the coming weeks, is full of non-stop neo-outlaw action, and features a high-speed chase through the tiny town of Greensburg, KY. The raucous video, shot during record high temperatures in the region, also features cameos by country star Kellie Pickler, 5-time WWE Champion and current TNA Impact Knockout wrestler Mickie James, and professional freestyle motocrosser Cowboy Kenny Bartram.

I’m not kidding… ‘Wagon Wheel’ is the ringtone on my phone!”
