Sugarland’s “Babe” video: Stars, cars, and… a jaguar?

Everyone knows by now that Taylor Swift had a heavy hand in the direction of Sugarland‘s new “Babe” video… she co-wrote the song (along with Train’s Pat Monahan), sings background, and plays a role in the video. But there’s more to it! Check out some fun stuff below.


The cheating husband is Brandon Routh.


The first classic car in the video is either a ’63 or ’64 Lincoln Continental. I had a hard time narrowing it down with nothing to go on, really. Until I noticed the door handles. Take a close look and you’ll see the rear passenger door handle is right next to the front passenger door handle. Odd, right? Those were called suicide doors back then, and then I was able to find the Lincoln. The ’63 model seems a bit longer on the back end, so I’m leaning towards ’64 with this one.


The next car, driven by Jennifer Nettles as she meets her hubby at work, well, thanks to a comment below, it’s identified as a 1966 Ford Galaxie. It’s beautiful!

Words from the second letter in Jennifer’s hand are lyrics of Roxy Music “My Only Love”.

The house is the same one used as the set of Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart” video, which premiered in March of 2013.


And is that a jaguar pin? Maybe a puma?

10 signs your church is trendy

Thought I’d post a lighthearted list of signs your church might fall on the side of super trendy, hipstery, and/or cool. Have a laugh, and feel free to add your additions in the comments below – Out of the Wilderness

10 Signs Your Church is Trendy

  • Forget hymns or anything by Hillsong. The worship team is teaching you songs by OneRepublic, Taylor Swift, or Coldplay.

 

  • The pastor calls passing the offering plate, “the original crowd-funding.”

 

  • People there are all pretty much the same age as you… that is, if you’re 25-35 yrs old.

 

  • You overhear someone call a hymnal, “vintage.”

  • Ignite. Encounter. Resurrection. The word ‘church’ isn’t actually in the name of the church.

 

  • The Gathering. Oasis. Red Door. Glide. The church sounds like an apartment complex or night club.

 

  • Before church, you stop by a coffeeshop… and it’s¬†in the church.

  • At any particular point, you count 47 guitarists on stage.

 

  • You haven’t brought a Bible in years.

 

  • You leave a church service feeling great about yourself.

Thanks for checking out the list! If you have any to add, feel free to comment below ūüôā

Taylor Swift’s first music video?

I had just moved to Nashville and one of my first paying jobs was as a production assistant for a music video. I was so excited! I don’t remember many of the details that day, but I do remember The Jordainaires, and a tall, curly-headed blonde girl that I walked by a couple of times. She ended up being part of the music video along with a choir of singers and songwriters…
taylor1…but I had no idea who she was. You wouldn’t have known either because this was BEFORE her first album came out! Scroll down to check out a 17-year old Taylor Swift starting around the 2:10 marker in the Wayne Warner video “God Bless the Children.”

Kanye West running for president?

Evidently during the 2015 VMAs Kanye West announced his candidacy for the 2020 presidential election.

And all of a sudden I’ve never been more convinced to vote for Hillary in 2016.¬†Get it? If Hillary becomes president in 2016, you know she’ll run for reelection and Kanye will be¬†out of luck. Unless he runs as a republican? With Trump as his running mate? And Taylor Swift as his Secretary of State?

Any scenario I come up with in my head makes me want Jesus to come back in 2019.
