Some artists like to go on “location” for a video shoot.
Dierks Bentley is one of those artists! Dierks and his wife, Cassidy, went to Iceland to film “Black.” The video was shoot over four days. Cassidy got out of her comfort zone by starring in the video with her husband! Dierks enjoyed the short visit, saying “We’ve been talking about Iceland as a location since before I even released the album last year, but I never thought we’d actually go. The next thing I know, there’s a shoot booked and we are standing on the side of a glacier half-dressed. The crew wasn’t kidding around . . . it was four long, cold days in some really treacherous conditions. We were on a lot of the same locations that Game Of Thrones and the Star Wars films have shot, and it’s just crazy what those people go through every day. I had the idea of putting my wife in the video, which is totally taking her out of her comfort zone, but I just couldn’t imagine doing a video for this song without her in it and she reluctantly agreed, but then totally NAILED it. It wouldn’t have been genuine without her. I think the end result is something really special, and it was a trip of a lifetime for everyone involved.”
