It’s that time of the week again where we here at Keepin’ it Country start browsing through YouTube to find three of our favorite videos to share with our readers this week. Our Videos of the Week segment includes three videos, one music video of the week, one cover of the week by a favorite artist, and one live performance of the week. Check out our picks for the week of May 30th and share your favorites with us and you might see them on next week’s edition!
MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
Gloriana – (Kissed You) Goodnight
This has been a song stuck in my head since Warner Music played it for us at the CRS Luncheon with Faith Hill back in February. It’s one of those music videos that actually follows the story of the song, and it flows pretty nicely. It’s a pretty song with the perfect video production, and for that it’s our video pick of the week for music video. Check out “(Kissed You) Goodnight” and let us know what you think:

COVER OF THE WEEK
Little Big Town – “Moves Like Jagger” (original by Maroon 5 & Christina Aguilera).
It’s always a risk to take on a popular pop song and try to “country-fy” it, but the talented group managed to make this song sound like it was meant to be country. Who knew that slapping a bit of banjo on a Maroon 5 song could almost make it a country single? The “Pontoon” singers show off their creativity and harmony on their remake of “Moves Like Jagger” – just check out the girls slowing things down at 2:30. Amazing.
LIVE PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK
Hunter Hayes – “Storm Warning” at the Opry
Carrie Underwood during her Highway Takeover on Sirius/XM last week said she chose Hunter Hayes to open for her “Blown Away Tour” because of the confidence the young singer has on stage. It’s not arrogance, said Carrie, it’s comfort. He’s comfortable on the stage and he should be one of country music’s brightest stars this year. He played every instrument on his debut album, and our pick for the week is his performance of his debut single “Storm Warning” on the biggest stage in country music – The Grand Ole Opry.
