The country star’s new video for “Highway Don’t Care,” which parks itself at CMT and CMT.com today, includes a car crash caused by a young girl who is texting while behind the wheel.
“The impetus of this idea came from my daughter, who’s 16 years old. She got her driver’s license today,” an emotional Tim said through tears at a world premiere event this week. “It was her idea to talk about a crash and texting. We didn’t set out to turn it into this public service announcement, but as I started realizing that I have two teenage daughters… I didn’t mind being preachy.”
In the video, Tim turns out to be a doctor who treats the crash victim.
The video also features song collaborators Taylor Swift and Keith Urban. Watch the full mini-movie below.
