Fandango Movieclips, the number one destination for movie trailers and movie-related video content on YouTube, launched today a Country Edition of its “I Love Movies” original video series, featuring four new episodes with Country Music stars Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery and Maddie & Tae.
The episodes, filmed on location at CMA Music Festival in Nashville earlier this summer, are available now for viewing on Fandango Movieclips on YouTube and Fandango.com. “I Love Movies” celebrates the joys of moviegoing and showcases celebrities and other cultural influencers across the globe, sharing personal stories and introducing fans to the movies that have touched their lives.
“There is a similarity between Country songs and the movies, maybe more so than any other art form,” said Brad Paisley, during his “I Love Movies” episode where he reveals, “It’s a Wonderful Life” as his favorite movie. He added, “Country songs, when done in a story form, are the closest thing to a Hollywood script you’ll find.”
Scotty McCreery reveals how the film “Miracle,” based on the historic U.S. Olympic men’s hockey team victory over the Soviet Union, inspired him during his “American Idol” competition. McCreery recalls, “If you could read my mind when Ryan Seacrest said the winner of ‘American Idol’ is Scotty McCreery, you could almost hear those lines ‘Do you believe in miracles?’ It was incredible for me out of nowhere, small town USA, to be getting up there and doing that in front of all those people.”
The 2008 horror thriller, “The Strangers,” has left a lasting impression on Country Music duo, Maddie & Tae. Maddie admits it’s the only scary movie she’ll watch with Tae, who has been a huge fan of the genre from an early age. Tae shares, “It is something my Dad and I would bond over. Any time a scary movie comes out, he’s my go-to date buddy,” and now she’s trying to bring that tradition over to Maddie, who shows some serious reluctance.
Previous episodes of “I Love Movies,” have featured NBA All-Star Dwight Howard, Grammy Award winner Reba McEntire, skateboarding icon and X Games gold medalist Tony Hawk, five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, rock legend Slash and Country Music artist Darius Rucker.
