Longview, TX — Everything was A-OK on Wednesday in downtown Longview.
You could tell that by the music, the dancing and the energy Neal McCoy and a troupe of volunteer extras were giving the camera for a video of the home-grown country singer’s new single, “A-OK.”
“Everybody look at the camera,” McCoy called to about 25 young people who had just danced with him from the rear of his tour bus and along Tyler Street to a spot directly in front of the camera on a 20-foot boom. “The camera’s going to shoot up, and y’all shoot up, too.”
For that shot, while dancers’ moms and Tyler Street retailers watched from the sidewalk, the extras bunched behind McCoy and leapt upward at the lyric, “like a rocket,” before each glided into freestyle hoofing while the song sailed along.
