Rising country singer Cole Bradley enlists National Hockey League players for his “Party Don’t Start” music video, which Sounds Like Nashville premieres below. The Columbus Blue Jackets’ Jake Bean, Seattle Kraken’s Cale Fleury and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Max Crozier are featured throughout the memorable four-minute clip.
The “Party Don’t Start” video was filmed over 11 hours in the midst of rainfall, windstorms and heavy smoke from a nearby forest fire. Director and videographer Oliver Banyard brought a house party to life with an A-list cast despite the inclement weather.
“Oliver truly captured the essence of the song while shooting an incredibly entertaining story,” Bradley, a Nashville-based artist and Canadian transplant, tells Sounds Like Nashville. “A lot of my close friends were extras and it felt like a real party by the end of it. This includes one of my best friends, Jake Bean, who plays in the NHL for the Columbus Blue Jackets. We grew up in the same neighborhood and have been great pals for a long time! Jake and I both took the ‘road less traveled’ in our careers and I feel like that has bonded us.”
