Few people knew the band, though.
Now that band, Florida Georgia Line, has gone on to have a huge hit with that song, “Cruise,” and its video. The band is appearing tonight at Intrust Bank Arena, and Coen’s friends are now more than impressed that she was in the video.
“They’re just like, ‘Are you serious?’”
The senior marketing major has done some modeling with a Nashville agency, which is how she landed the video gig. She appears in a purple tank top in the video (the one that doesn’t bare a bellybutton).
Coen also interned for a Nashville record label and wants to be in marketing for the entertainment industry.
She isn’t looking for a career in music videos, though she did have a great time in the video, which included getting to throw colored corn starch around.
“It was really, really fun.”
She made her father proud, too.
Steve Coen, president and CEO at the Kansas Health Foundation, says the video was a great opportunity.
“You just want the best for your children and want them to experience … whatever they want to do while they’re young.”
