Country music also picked up on the trend of promotional clips to go along with songs. Sam Lovullo, the producer of the television series , said his show presented "what were, in reality, the first musical videos," while JMI Records made the same claim with ' 1973 song, "The Shelter of Your Eyes. Country music historian Bob Millard wrote that JMI had pioneered the country music video concept by "producing a 3-minute film" to go along with Williams' song. Lovullo said his videos were conceptualized by having the show's staff go to nearby rural areas and film animals and farmers, before editing the footage to fit the storyline of a particular song. "The video material was a very workable production item for the show," he wrote. "It provided picture stories for songs. However, some of our guests felt the videos took attention away from their live performances, which they hoped would promote record sales. If they had a hit song, they didn't want to play it under comic barnyard footage." The concept's mixed reaction eventually spelled an end to the "video" concept on .
