When Miranda Lambert recruited her friends and family to be in her music video for “Tequila Does,” of course, husband Brendan McLoughlin had to have a starring role. The song, known for its hook “He don’t love me like tequila does” peaked at spot number 23 on Billboard charts back in October 2019. Now back with a new sound, Lambert decided to give the music video a more electric sound with the Telemitry remix.
As one of Miranda Lambert’s backup dancers, Brendan McLoughlin had to look the part. So, with some help from a couple of equally-ripped brothers, the self-claimed “city boy” worked hard to tone his midsection for the video. And the results are impeccable.
In the first of McLoughlin’s two photos, he poses alongside his two brothers on a pier. All three are shirtless and perfectly tanned, posing behind a bucket of “domestic beer.” Miranda Lambert’s husband flashes a bright white smile on the far right with a cross necklace around his neck.
Meanwhile, the second photo features the country legend herself posing with the McLoughlin men. Taken during the video shoot, Miranda Lambert has on her rainbow sunglasses and pink gingham shirt. And, of course, she’s holding a margarita.
McLoughlin captioned the pictures, “When your cowgirl ropes you in for another video you call in your brothers for backup. @mirandalambert Tequila Does @telemitry remix out now.”
Miranda Lambert’s Husband Plays Love Interest in Music Video
It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to fans that Miranda Lambert used her music video as an opportunity to spotlight her love for her husband. While the song clearly states that no man can come close to her relationship with tequila, McLoughlin is a close second. Even as a happily married couple, Lambert and McLoughlin never pass up an opportunity to show their love and appreciation for each other. Perhaps in a permanent honeymoon phase, the music video shed a little light on how much fun the two have together.
We first see McLoughlin in the music video when Miranda Lambert walks towards him and his brothers with a liquor bottle in hand. Standing on the same pier as in McLoughlin’s photos, the brothers jostle each other and spray on another layer of suntan oil. While the country star sings, the camera closes in on the men.
“I’d sure like to find
A cowboy tonight
To get me back in the saddle
But the boys around here
Drink domestic beer
They’re all hat and no cattle”
While McLoughlin dances with the rest of Miranda Lambert’s crew, it seems the director’s instructions were just to have a blast. Between a boat ride, drinking games and bonfire, the stage direction was clearly an easy one. Finally, just before the video ends, Lambert and her husband share a big smooch before the group clinks their solo cups together.
