Joe Nichols Is In Darn Good Shape
The "Gimme That Girl" singer also landed at No. 2 on the site's list of overall most viewed artists.
The video for "The Shape I'm In" was made in partnership with the Lone Survivor Foundation and The Boot Campaign, and pays tribute to America's servicemen and women who have overcome adversity and returned to everyday life with a positive attitude even "when they could probably have more of a gripe than any of us," said Nichols.
The video features testimonials from former Navy SEAL and author of the best selling book "Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell, as well as some of the servicemen that were wounded in war and have come back home to face "normal" life.
"It's not just that, 'Hey! I'm recognizing that this guy lost a limb and he's got a presthetic leg and that's how he's got to go about his life,'" Nichols says. "It's the...smile on his face, like 'Hey! I know what's going on. I know that I've got something to overcome here, but I'm doing alright. I'm getting better. I'm going about my business, and this is not going to stop me.'"
The Boot Campaign encourages Americans to purchase a pair of army combot boots to wear in support of our nation's troop. To show your appreciation for the military, the Boot Girls are asking Americans to wear boots during the routine of daily life to "symbolically walk in the shoes of our military men and women, remembering their service and sacrifice."
"The Shape I'm In" is featured on Nichols' "Greatest Hits" collection and is in stores now.
