Little Big Town’s ‘Rocket Man’ Video Is Full of Wonder
The video for the song — which is featured on the country cover album Restoration: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin — focuses on a little boy who grabs his bike and sneaks out of his house for a spacey encounter that results in him disappearing and leaving a techno-cube left in his place, showing images of LBT’s Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, Karen Fairchild and Phillip Sweet along with vintage footage of Elton John himself.
"It's always a huge compliment when an artist loves your song enough to take the time and effort to rework it" Elton John said earlier this year of the album, which also includes covers by Maren Morris, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves. "As songwriters, Bernie and myself are thrilled when singers we admire and respect as much as those on Revamp & Restoration choose to add their own unique twist in the process. It means that our music is still relevant and ultimately that our songs continue to reach new audiences. We're humbled and thank them all for their generosity."
The release of the music video is a worthy kickoff for Little Big Town, whose summer includes a much-anticipated tour alongside Miranda Lambert.
