Shoot of Popular Country Music Video Damaged Nashville Landmark

Shoot of Popular Country Music Video Damaged Nashville Landmark

One of country music�s most popular videos resulted in damage to one of Nashville�s landmarks.

The video, Big and Rich�s �Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy� was shot entirely on the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge.  Steve Lamar produced the video.


�We've got the Pearl Cohn Marching Band.  Grechen Wilson is on the tractor.  The concept was really like a do da parade, a big party�, said Lamar.


It quickly became one of country music's most popular videos, but this party had a cost.


Metro Public Works says the shoot damaged the decorative painting on the newly opened bridge.  You can actually see the hoof marks from the horses.


It left scuff marks and actually dents in the pavement that have to be repaired.  The repairs cost $23,000.  The Metro council is set to pass a resolution agreeing to accept the money.


It was a lot more expensive than I thought it was going to be, but that's what it is.  I'm glad the insurance was there.  That's what it's for,� said Lamar.


Other groups are allowed to use the bridge.  There was a wedding and there will be a wine tasting event this weekend.  Public Works always checks to see if there's damage.


You may even see the bridge in a video again, but if you do, Steve Lamar bets there won�t be any horses.
