Dwight Yoakam causes chaos on Sunset Boulevard in his brand new video for “Liar.”
Yoakam and his production crew were given unprecedented access by Los Angeles city officials that allowed them to perform out of the back of an El Camino on the side of the legendary street.
“We almost got clipped once,” Yoakam said to KTLA radio about the risky video shoot. Shots of Yoakam alongside his guitar, bass and harmonica players are intersected with shots of a pair of artists who end up right in the middle of Yoakam’s energetic performance. You can tell from everyone’s faces that the chaotic shoot was really just one big party for everyone involved.
“The ‘Liar’ music video shoot was an especially fun and unique shoot to direct because after lengthy negotiations with the city, we were granted an unusual and special clearance to capture a live performance on the legendary Sunset Strip; a street that more than any other has earned iconic status for being the location of music history for decades,” director Gregory Alosio told Rolling Stone Country.
