Kate Upton is challenged to chug whatever Tony Hale can manage to mix up in the music video for "Bartender," the lead single off Lady Antebellum's upcoming fifth album.

The breakup anthem — written by the country trio's Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott with co-writer Rodney Clawson, and co-produced by Nathan Chapman — centers on a brokenhearted woman who bounces back with a good ol' girls' night out.

Directed by Shane C. Drake, the video opens with the Other Woman actress deciding to paint the town after a breakup as she walks across a moving stage and into a bar to drown her sorrows. With rounds of shots, margaritas and martinis, the night quickly turns into a battle of the sexes in a setting similar to a boxing ring, as men wipe the sweat off the forehead of a hard-working Hale in one corner, and Upton's girlfriends cheer her on in another.
