Blake Shelton and Ashley Monroe Turn Up the Yearning in ‘Lonely Tonight’ Video
The song casts the pair as former lovers who can't resist getting together one final time -- or is it? As the lyrics say, "I could be there in five / One more one last time / We don't have to be lonely tonight."
The city of Los Angeles is the real star of the video, setting a scene of yearning by juxtaposing scenes of the city at night against shots of Shelton and Monroe singing their parts separately as she takes a limo to his hotel.
"He's like a brother," Monroe tells Rolling Stone. "He's one of my best friends. We just sing and look at each other and are like, 'Ah, I know you!'"
'Lonely Tonight' is the second single from Shelton's 'Bringing Back the Sunshine.'
