When I first wrote about this music video (Who’s the dude in the video), it was at 1.8 million views on YouTube. Now, less than a year later, it’s up to 17.2 million views. Congrats to Ingrid on her success with this song and video!
Anywho, that post I referenced above was about the guy in the video. But you might be wondering who the lead actress is. Well, her name is Kathryn Walters.
She comes from a family of 6, according to this Vimeo video she posted in 2019.
She’s either engaged or married to a guy named Mahlon Stoltz, a singer/songwriter in Nashville. They both live in Nashville, Tennessee. Here are links to their Instagram pages.
Rising over 1.8 million views on YouTube, obviously Ingrid has found something that might just “make America cry again.” The music video premiered on April 24th so by now you’ve had plenty of time to watch it. But here’s another chance…
You can find plenty of info about the story behind the song, just check out this and this… but what about the video? Who’s the ex-boyfriend? What kind of car is she driving? Where was it filmed? Well, here’s what I found out!
The guy playing her love interest former love interest is actually a singer/songwriter himself. His name is Davis Mallory. He’s got a ton of stuff online so go check him out when you get a second. One interesting thing is he’s counted among the alumni of MTV’s Real World. From what I could find, I believe Davis is gay, so I kind of chuckled because Ingrid’s video is about breaking up with a boyfriend, who’s played by a gay guy. Perhaps this is why they break up in the story? So many layers to peel back!
There’s really not much to go on at all, but based on the headrest in the beginning of the video, I’ll bet this is a Volvo from the late 80s or early 90s.
If you know anything about cars or Volvos specifically, do share!
Location, location, location… The video was filmed in Springfield, Tennessee, a town with a population around 17,000. It’s about 30 miles north of Nashville, roughly 2,100 miles east of Los Angeles. It’s home of one of Tennessee’s best 18-hole golf courses, but you won’t find me swinging clubs there.
