Watch: Sugarland's Latest Video "Babe" Featuring Taylor Swift
The video traces the tale of a man having affair with a co-worker, played by a redheaded Swift. But when his wife, played by Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, catches on, she shuts him out for good. The other half of the Sugarland duo, Kristian Bush, also makes a series of cameos from nosy neighbor to weatherman on a fuzzy black-and-white television in the "Mad Men" inspired clip.
As it turns out, Swift not only co-wrote the song with the band, she also wrote the treatment for the video.
"She actually reached out to us and said, 'I've got a great idea for the video,' and she wrote the treatment," Nettles told People. "She loves this song. ... She loves our recording of it. She's been such a champion of ours, not only for many, many years, but also where this project is concerned. She's just super excited that we're doing it."
The "Babe" video arrived just one day after Sugarland's sixth studio album, Bigger, which marks the band's first new release since 2010's The Incredible Machine. The band is currently on tour across North America through Sept. 9, where they wrap up in Philadelphia at The Mann Center.
