As part of TODAY's Toyota Summer Concert Series, country star Brad Paisley will rock Friday morning's Rockefeller Plaza crowd — but before then, he has a treat for viewers at home.

The three-time Grammy Award winner premiered a tease of his new video, "Country Nation," on TODAY Thursday, and has the video in its entirety.

Here are some fun facts about the video, which was directed by Jeff Venable and produced by Trent Hardville for Revolution Pictures.

  • The song’s celebration of the blue-collar spirit and our nation’s love for sports colorfully come to life in the video.
  • It was filmed in part on Nashville’s Vanderbilt University football field.
  • It features more than two dozen college football mascots.
  • Be watching for a guest appearance by Brad’s own mascot, his in-concert crowd-favorite, Bobblehead Brad.
