The video for “Fancy”, shows a heartwarming story of an affluent Reba McEntire visiting a rustic shack that she grew up in. The video cuts back and forth between Reba as a teenager with her mother and herself as an adult in a vacant house. The video does a stellar job at capturing the nostalgic feeling of the song with the use of a brown and white filter. “Fancy” remains one of the most metaphorical filled country music videos ever produced.
“He Ain’t Worth Missin” shows Toby Keith working as a bartender and is being continuously stared at by a random woman. The woman ends up being hit on by a random male piano player, but he eventually leaves her. Toby Keith displays his sorrow for the woman by singing in his lonesome dark apartment. The video’s mix of soft background lighting and shadows displays the trend among 90’s country music videos.
