Oscar Winner Matthew McConaughey Stars in Zach Bryan's Triumphant New 'Nine Ball' Music Video Following Grammy Breakthrough Fresh off claiming his first Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance alongside Kacey Musgraves last weekend, rising country sensation Zach Bryan celebrates his breakthrough Grammy momentum by unveiling his highly anticipated new music video for single “Nine Ball” starring Oscar-winning actor and Texas native Matthew McConaughey. The cinematic visual pairs poignant small-town storytelling with plenty of star power.
The prolific Bryan, 27, has skyrocketed from viral TikTok obscurity in 2021 based out of Navy barracks to become Nashville’s most buzzed about modern outsider songwriting talent reinventing the country genre’s boundaries through raw authenticity. After chart-topping 2022 debut album “American Heartbreak,” the Oklahoma native recently released new EP “Boys of Faith” earning more critical acclaim plus key collaborations with indie stars Bon Iver and Noah Kahan signaling Bryan’s unique crossover appeal.
Yet beyond accumulating streaming billions, this hardscrabble underdog maintains devoted grassroots following through steadfast touring and channeling lyrical minutiae of overlooked American stories often overlooked by commercial Nashville polish. Bryan’s focus upholding creative authenticity over industry formulas earned him three Grammy nominations this year - including the duet victory with Musgraves manifesting Bryan’s broadening genre alliances.
On the heels newfound Grammy validation though, Bryan switches focus unveiling his new “Nine Ball” music video directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen starring Oscar-favorite Hollywood talent Matthew McConaughey alongside actors Tye Sheridan and Scott Shepherd. The opening track and visual sets tone for Bryan’s latest “Boys of Faith” EP channeling small town family bonds and tenuous fidelity against hardship's headwinds - recurring Bryan themes striking relatable chords among loyal listeners.
In the new video itself, Texas icon McConaughey inhabits a paternal narrator role overseeing a poignant multi-decade father and son relationship that undergoes evolution through a gritty pool hall lens as time passes framed by Bryan’s centered baritone stripped back to essential vulnerability by acoustic guitars. Director Cohen previously directed Zach Bryan’s “Oklahoma Smokeshow” video showcasing the musician’s signature moody plains photography plus stunning Bon Iver collaborative track clip further suggesting Cohen’s pedigreed eye capturing this artist’s indie appeal authentically.
The cumulative result with “Nine Ball” showcases Cohen’s sharp lyrical interpretation enlivening Bryan’s vivid understated character vignettes through an ambient visual tone blending rural atmospherics with Hollywood glow. Real life father and son actors bearing convincing resemblance play the leads across years with McConaughey orbiting their journey as omniscient empathetic guide under Cohen’s steady direction. In many ways the visually stunning short film echoes quintessential McConaughey vehicles like Mud by spotlighting gritty small town stories often overlooked. The patient character study effectively translates Bryan’s revealing narrative illustrating ambivalent generational bonds between stoic fathers and questioning sons who reconcile understanding broader human complexity only through weathering years apart coming to terms what loyalty demands - a densely thematic motif likely resonating many Bryan listeners’ truths.
With this latest Grammy credentialed release perfectly channeling Zach Bryan’s signature ability bearing unseen folk stories of overlooked Americans played out through understated country-folk soundtrack, the young troubadour cements 2023 momentum as Nashville’s most compelling outlier songwriter speaking marginalized struggles through boldly vulnerable art bucking commercial conventions. Much as Matthew McConaughey minted maverick acting career actualizing only later following early Hollywood uneven steps, the two Texas sons suggest fruitful roads less traveled get revealed in good timing. And through courage giving voice unflinchingly to outsiders bearing raw wisdom hard-earned through tests of pain and understanding alike, Zach Bryan channels the everyman poetry of the modern Sons of the Lone Star State.
