Little Big Town's "Sugar Coat" music video takes us back to the 1960s and gives us a heart-wrenching look into a marriage that's no longer working...

Country music group Little Big Town‘s “Sugar Coat” music video stars actress Kate Bosworth as a sixties housewife feeling trapped in an empty marriage.

“I play a woman who is in a complicated marriage,” Bosworth explains. “She is often lonely and unfulfilled, realizing that she is not getting what she needs from a partner, devastated by the choices that her husband is making.”

“As she slowly discovers what is happening, while it’s a sad moment, it is ultimately a resilient one,” the actress adds. “She finds her strength, her fortitude, and ultimately herself. It was an honor to bring this song to life with a band that I love.”

Little Big Town stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon  in advance of launching their Nightfall Tour at New York’s famed Carnegie Hall on Thursday, January 16th and dropping their latest album of the same title on Friday, January 17th.

“Sugar Coat” Lyrics

I turn the bathroom light on
To take my makeup off
Look at myself in the eye
And wonder why I wear it anyway

Another car drives by
I wonder where you are
The kids are all in bed
And everything but you is in its place

From the street view looking in
It’s pretty as a picture
A home sweet home

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat

Passed down from my mom
She wore it so well
She’d rest it on my shoulders
Say it’s colder out there than you think

Would I recognize myself
Would anybody else
If I took the damn thing off and burned it up

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat
Oh, this damn sugar coat

One of these nights I’ll meet you in the driveway
And tell you to go to hell, go to hell

Sometimes I wish I liked drinking
Sometimes I wish I liked pills
Wish I could sleep with a stranger
But someone like me never will
Sometimes I hardly can stand it
I just smile with a lump in my throat
Sometimes I wish I could bear it
Didn’t have to wear this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat
Oh, this sugar coat
This damn sugar coat
