Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler spent part of the offseason working on a video with country singer Luke Bryan that was released Thursday morning. You could say that it's Jimmy Butler like we've never seen him before.
According to tasteofcountry.com: "The NBA player is apparently a country music fan who frequently attends Bryan's concerts. Butler plays the main character in the three-minute 'Light It Up' clip, acting out the song's lyrics."
The website whiskeyriff.com says that Butler was seen at country shows in and around Chicago during the six seasons that he played for the Bulls before being traded to the Timberwolves over the summer.
Bryan and Butler have been teasing the video of "Light It up" with a series of Instagram posts.
The short version: Butler plays a basketball player distraught that he hasn't received a text message from his girlfriend.
