When Jamey Johnson needed a director for the video of his new single, "Playing the Part," he called one of his biggest fans: Matthew McConaughey
PEOPLE has a first look at behind-the scenes footage of the video shoot – including interviews with the musician and his actor pal.
"He called a couple months ago and said, 'Matthew I got a new album coming out and a single, and I want you to direct the video,' " says McConaughey, who first hit it off with Johnson when they met in Las Vegas during the 2009 ACM Awards. "I said 'I'm in.' "
