“Neglectful,” “selfish,” “liar,” “alcoholic”–those are just some of the words haunting the main character at the center of Rascal Flatts‘ new music video for their single “Changed.”
The video stars actor Charles Esten, best known these days for his role as Deacon Claybourne on the TV drama Nashville. In “Changed,” Esten plays a guy carrying some serious personal baggage, which is deeply affecting his relationship with his wife and daughter. But as the video shows, not every person who’s sinking winds up at the bottom–some can, with enough willpower, support, and self-awareness, face their demons and work to turn their lives around. It’s a video that starts out tragic but is ultimately uplifting.
