Paul Cauthen, "Saddle"

Filmed at the Broken Spoke in Austin, "Saddle" opens with a loosely filled dancehall. Cowboys are ordering burgers; cowgirls are shooting pool. Gradually, more and more patrons begin practicing a new dance move – let's call it "the lasso" – until Cauthen arrives, kickstarting a Texas-sized boogie breakdown that's as nostalgic and irresistibly fun as the song itself. Not only a showcase for Cauthen's larger-than-life persona, the "Saddle" video also pays warm tribute to Austin, with hometown hero Shakey Graves making a cameo during the video's first minute.
