Kate Upton, Tony Hale Duel Over Drinks in Lady Antebellum's 'Bartender' Video

The country trio's lead single off their fifth album challenges the model to chug whatever the "Veep" star mixes. And only one makes it out of the video.


Kate Upton is challenged to chug whatever Tony Hale can manage to mix in the music video for "Bartender," Lady Antebellum's lead single off their upcoming fifth album.

The breakup anthem—written by the country trio's Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott with co-writer Rodney Clawson, and co-produced by Nathan Chapman—centers on a brokenhearted woman who bounces back with a good ol' girls' night out, complete with a ton of whiskey.

Directed by Shane C. Drake, the video first features The Other Woman actress, Kate Upton, deciding to take on the town after a breakup, as she walks across a moving stage and into a bar to drown her sorrows. With rounds of shots, margaritas and martinis, the night quickly turns into a battle of the sexes in a setting similar to a boxing ring, as men wipe the sweat off the forehead of a hard-working Hale in one corner, and Upton's girlfriends cheer her on in another.

While the band sings along and looks on the match from a booth nearby, one aggressive competitor wins the duel and makes it out of the music video, while the other is left sitting in a blank soundstage.


This video will be released @ 5:00pm Today.
