Florida Georgia Line Orchestrate Epic Vow Renewal in ‘Smooth’ Video
Never let it be said that the guys of Florida Georgia Line don’t know how to party. In their “Smooth” video, the duo take on Las Vegas — but not just to raise cain. They’re making sure their bud Craig Wiseman, a.k.a. “Cat Daddy,” gets to his vow renewal with wife KK on time.
The pair begin trying to fix their broken down truck delivering their signature Old Camp Whiskey, when Wiseman pulls up in a pink Cadillac with an Elvis impersonator he’s already picked up. The guys hop in at his request for a ‘witness,’ and all the while there are FGL lookalikes hiding in the bushes to spy on them.
“They’re kinda KK’s spies — they’re making sure we make it to the wedding,” Tyler Hubbard explains.

The real FGL get Wiseman, who’s a long-time friend of the band and an accomplished songwriter, all decked out for the occasion as they party with Fake Elvis, then meet up with KK for the ceremony. Fake Elvis performs the ceremony before they kick off the dance party.
In real life, Wiseman and KK have been married since 1994.
“KK and Craig actually just renewed their vows,” Hubbard says. “Cat Daddy surprised her with an awesome, custom-made diamond ring. [It’s a] really special moment here on set, so it’s cool, really cool, to experience that.”
Brian Kelley co-directed the video — his first time in the role. “It’s been really cool to write the treatment and see this thing slowly come to life,” he says about the process.
“Smooth” is the fourth single from the band’s newest record Dig Your Roots, following its recently-minted No. 1 hit “God, Your Mama and Me,” a collaboration with the Backstreet Boys. They’re teaming up with the boy band again for an episode of CMT Crossroads, as well as some select tour dates, including Wrigley Field Aug. 12.
