Kellie Pickler Reveals Inspiration Behind ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight’ Music Video
Kellie Pickler recently released the hot and steamy video for her latest single, “Someone Somewhere Tonight.” The “Dancing with the Stars” season 16 champion reunited with her partner Derek Hough and created a video that fans won’t soon forget.
The singer spoke with Parade about the story behind the video and what it was like to partner with Hough again. When it came to the idea behind the dance, Pickler said the duo had a short time to prepare. “We just kind of winged it. I literally called Derek a week before we shot the video and was like, ‘Do you think you could choreograph my video?’ He was like, ‘Absolutely!’ I’m so happy with how it all turned out,” she said.
The inspiration came from both of her passions; dancing and singing. “It was really neat that we were able to incorporate my passion for singing with my new passion for dancing, which I discovered on ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ It was great that we were able to put the two together. I’m so happy with how the song ‘Somewhere, Someone Tonight’ turned out, and I’m even happier with how the video turned out. It was really a fun day.”
The video also shows the intense chemistry between the pair. “I think for all of the couples on DWTS, you do feel trust with your partner. There’s complicated lifts and moves, so you have to trust that your partner has got you and is going to take care of you, and they’re going to catch you when you fall down,” she explained, adding, “Derek and I already had that foundation of trust, and we got to know each other very well on the show. When you’re dancing, you have to play this character, you have to transform into the dance that you’re doing. Like the Viennese Waltz — I never did any of that stuff, but you put on a costume and transform. The music starts and your feet and your body just go with the flow.”
