Kid Rock’s new video, and other puppets in country music

Kid Rock’s new video for “Tennessee Mountain Top” features a raccoon named Jackson. This is one of the better country music videos I’ve seen that feature puppets. Take a look:


But Kid Rock is not the first to join up with puppets. Take a look at the following collaborations with puppets and/or music videos that feature puppets. First up is one that was considered a swing and a miss, from Trace Adkins.


More recently you have Brad Paisley portrayed as a mascot among quite a few mascots from college sports.


Kacey Musgraves is accompanied by a puppet playing the violin in “Biscuits.”


Elvis Presley acted in many movies, one which included a song called “Wooden Heart,” in which he appears alongside a puppet.


This next one isn’t exactly country music, but in the Miley Cyrus video for “Younger Now,” she has a scene a lot like the Elvis clip above.


The Cadillac Three used puppets to announce their new album. Click here for the video.
