Police were called to the home of country musician John Rich when neighbors complained about the noise from a night video shoot that used fireworks and a helicopter.

Police spokeswoman Kristin Mumford told The Tennessean that officers went to Rich's Nashville home twice after neighbors reported a raucous party.

Mumford said there were no citations issued but Rich's security crew was asked to keep the noise down.

Warner Music Nashville spokeswoman Tree Paine said the filming was done with the proper permits.

Rich's neighbors have complained before about the large, ultramodern home the singer calls Mount Richmore.

The newspaper reports that a sign on his gate warns people to keep out and adds, "Violators may be shot. Protected by the 2nd Amendment."
