Eric Church released his official video for “Round Here Buzz,” directed by Reid Long, this week. It's an emotional video, casting the same teenager from the “Mr. Misunderstood” video released last year. “Round Here Buzz,” written by Church, Jeff Hyde, and Luke Dick, is the fourth single from Church’s current album, Mr. Misunderstood, and is No. 13 on Billboard’s Country Airplay.
“Catch me a ‘round here buzz 'cause you ain’t 'round here none.”
Implementing the lyrics of this hometown song, the video follows two teenagers throughout their love story, starting at a high school football game. The boy is a music-loving band member and the girl, Julie, is on the cheerleading team. They unexpectedly start spending time together and fall in love. He confesses his love by making a personal mix-tape CD, which Julie keeps with her after they separate. The two end up chasing different dreams, but their hearts continue to chase each other.

Mickey Smay, the teenager portrayed in "Round Here Buzz,“ as well as "Mr. Misunderstood” and “Record Year,” is also on the cover of Church’s LP, Mr. Misunderstood. It seems as though Church enjoys sharing his own story through the eyes of this one teenager, who lives the life of Church’s younger years in his music videos.
