Drake worked closely with Taillight executive producer, Chandra LaPlume-Pereira, Tim's Big Machine Records' Sandi Spika-Borchetta, as well as McGraw's creative director, Kelly Clauge.

"I'm extremely proud of this video," says LaPlume-Pereira. "The entire process was so creatively fulfilling. Watching Shane in action on set, giving such pointed direction and bringing his creative vision to the project is always thrilling. He's the kind of director that makes me excited about what the future holds for us in the country market!"
