Dierks Bentley Fans Tip One Back in New Music Video
Sticking with the theme of cold beers, Dierks Bentley released the music video for his new song 'Tip It on Back.' The song tells the story of a dying small town, and how residents can cope with the loss of their favorite businesses and homes by tipping back a beer. With images of for sale signs and happy families losing their property, the video runs deeper than a typical clip about beer drinking.
Through a series of different shots, the video shows a man pounding a for sale sign into the ground in front of his house. Old memories of raising kids at the house, relaxing with his wife in the yard, and spending time with the family in the barn race through his mind as he tries to escape his troubles.
What's left to do when you lose your house except drink a cold beer and try to forget your problems? The man and his wife attend a Bentley concert and together they figure out a way to let their problems go and have a good time. The video was filmed at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Ga. and although it's a bittersweet clip, Bentley and his friends had a blast making it.
“This video shoot took me back to the ‘High Times & Hangovers’ days when we were playing dirty rock bars and sustaining on beer and Jager bombs,” the country star said in a statement (according to Country Music Tattle Tale). “We just started texting people to come down to the Georgia Theatre, and hundreds of UGA students showed up to day-drink with us. It was a total blast and a great kick off to the college shows we did across the Southeast the rest of the week.”
'Tip It on Back' is the latest single off of Bentley's CMA-nominated album, 'Home.'
