Dierks Bentley As Dwight from The Office
Dierks Bentley just dropped the music video for his song "Gone," and it is worth a view or 12. The video shows Dierks laying in a vintage hotel bed watching the TV. What is on the TV is the fun part. It is Dierks himself playing 13 different iconic roles from TV and movies. It also shows some great performance shots of Dierks and all of his scruffy hotness.
This is perfect setting for the song, "I've been gone, I've been gone / I've been sittin' on the couch watching TV all day long," he sings. "All day long, I've been tryna figure out how a good thing went wrong."
Shortly after the video Dierks had an interview with PEOPLE and said, "It just always ends poorly for me in this video. I definitely had a lot more fun making it than it looks though. We got to film a bunch of scenes inspired by some of my favorite shows like The Office, MacGyver, Game of Thrones and Full House. And I got to collaborate with some new directors I've never worked with, so I left at the end of a really long day feeling really happy and inspired about a kind of sad song."
The clip was shot in Nashville in November and produced by Lora Criner, Angie Lorenz and J.R Wilson, directed by Wes Edwards, Ed Pryor, Travis Nicholson, Running Bear and Sam Siske, with animation by Skylar Wilson.
I love just about everything that Dierks releases, including this song "GONE" which he officially released in late October. We are playing it in regular rotation here on 104.3 WOW country. I loved it even before I watched the video and now I love it even more. Check it out for yourself:
