Two videos were made for the song. In the first video, Nichols plays the song's protagonist at various ages; makeup was used to make him appear thirty years older.[1] The song's first video first aired on the television network CMT on November 23, 2006. A second video was later made, featuring an acoustic remix of the song and shot in black and white. This version is the one most often played on TV. The video was directed by Chris Hicky.
