Joey Feek's "Red" music video is a fun look back at the inspiring songstress when she was still in her 20's. Enjoy it here!
Before forming the duo Joey+Rory with husband Rory Feek, Joey Feek was a solo country music artist signed to Sony Records. Unfortunately, the album she recorded with Sony in 2002 was shelved due to a management change and not even a single hit country radio.

“I really never found all the great songs [for the album] I was hoping to,” Joey told CMT in a 2008 interview. “Halfway through making the record, Rory and I met, and we got married probably within four months of meeting. Looking back, it’s nothing I would record today, but at the time, I was really proud of it.”

A few years after marrying Rory, he produced her 2005 Strong Enough To Cry album, which was a collection of classic country songs penned by the late artist herself. One of the tracks on the record was a boot-stomping, patriotic song called “Red.” The music video for the tune was filmed at and around the Feek family’s farm while Joey was working full time at an equine veterinary clinic.

Check out Joey Feek’s music video and lyrics for the fun country tune below.

“Red” Lyrics

If all the clothes you wear are camouflage
And you drive around in a dually Dodge
With a blue-tick hound ridin’ in the bed
You’re red, you’re red

If you’re into sittin’ in a tree stand for daylight
With an eight point buck in your sights
And not for sport but to keep your family fed
You’re red, man you’re red

You’re red, white and blue
Country through and through

If your arms are tan and your chest is white
And your idea of eatin’ right
Is turnip greens, fried chicken and cornbread
You’re red, You’re red

Now, if you don’t know who your congressmen are
But you can name every driver in NASCAR
And you cried when you heard Earnhardt was dead
You’re red, man you’re red

You’re red, white and blue
Country through and through

You’re American lovin’, flag wavin’, northern-southern family raisin’
Workin’, playin’, heaven prayin’ country through and through

If Haggard sings your favorite song
And you learned the difference between right and wrong
With a hickory switch out behind the shed
You’re red, you’re red

If your letter jacket says FFA
And you spend your summers bailin’ hay
With a John Deere cap sittin upon your head
You’re red, man you’re red
You’re red, you’re red
R-E-D
