Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton Head to the Bottom of a Whiskey Bottle for ‘Dive Bar’ Video [Watch]
Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton find themselves at the bottom of a "Dive Bar" — literally — in the music video for their new collaboration.
Prior to the video's release, they teased that the setting would be "underwater," but the two superstars actually find themselves at the bottom of a whiskey bottle sitting on the shelf of Shelton' Nashville bar, Ole Red. The video opens with the band members floating down wearing scuba gear and cowboy boots before Brooks and Shelton join them on the stage, with an Old Red banner displayed in the background.
Brooks is on guitar while trading vocals with Shelton as they sing, "So here's a toast coast to coast / With a big old adios to wishes wasted on them falling stars / We're gonna spend the weekend in the deep end of a dive bar." They're soon joined by a pair of dancing sharks, with the singers throwing in some cheesy moves of their own as they attempt a backward moon slide and Shelton rocks out on air guitar. The video ends as the camera pans back from the performance to show the whiskey bottle sitting on the bar before a bartender grabs it to pour someone a drink.
“I keep saying that this is the most fun I’ve ever had on a video shoot. I couldn’t stop laughing, just pure joy. The band, crew, Blake … everyone made this one an unforgettable experience," Brooks says in a press release. "It’s been a while since we’ve done a music video, and I hope everyone agrees this one was worth the wait.”
The country giants are scheduled to perform the lighthearted track during the 2019 CMA Awards, which are slated to air live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Nov. 13 at 8PM ET on ABC.
Brooks is currently working two tours at once. His Stadium Tour features him performing in some of the largest venues in the U.S., while his Dive Bar Tour finds him performing in the kinds of smaller venues where he launched his career.
Garth Brooks tickets are available for his upcoming shows.
