Jason Aldean returned to his hometown of Macon, Georgia this week to film the music video for his new song Gonna Know We Were Here. Approximately 1,200 people applied to be extras, while just over 200 were selected, according to Terrell Sandefur of the Macon Film Commission.
Aldean also recruited students from his high school alma mater, Windsor Academy, to appear. A bus from the school, football players, and cheerleaders were on set with the other extras. (Bonus fact- that’s the same high school Nancy Grace attended)
The video shoot closed Tuesday night with fireworks over downtown Macon.
