Kenny Chesney is paying tribute to all the free spirited women in his new music video for “Wild Child.”

The nearly four-minute clip follows Chesney’s friend, songwriter Gretchen Rhodes, in Hawaii as she explores the land.

Set in Hawaii, we see Rhodes skateboarding down a hill, surfing at the beach and wandering throughout a field in Hawaii with wild horses. The video was premiered via USA Today.

“[Director] Shaun [Silva] really captured everything that makes Robin–and every woman just like her–and I know people get their music in so many different places,” Chesney said in a press release. “I wanted to give the clip several opportunities to be seen beyond the traditional country outlets, because I think no matter what kind of music you love, this woman is someone everyone should celebrate.

“It is a song about any woman so hungry to engage life, she spends her days trying to taste it all… You don’t have to be a gypsy to be a free spirit, but just someone so in love with life, you will never get enough. To see a woman like that is a pretty amazing thing.”
