The lighthearted clip marks Brooks’ first video in 12 years, and it finds the pair of land-locked Okies in unfamiliar waters. Featuring an under-sea CGI stage setup, dancing sharks and a band full of scuba diving cowboys (plus bubbles that rise from the stars’ mouths every time they sing a note) it’s not necessarily in line to win any Oscars — but it sure does match the tune’s fun-filled, leave-your-worries behind nature. According to Brooks, it was good to get back on the music-video boat.
“I keep saying that this is the most fun I’ve ever had on a video shoot,” he explains. “I couldn’t stop laughing, just pure joy. The band, crew, Blake … everyone made this one an unforgettable experience. It’s been a while since we’ve done a music video and I hope everyone agrees this one was worth the wait.”
Fans won’t have to wait long to see Brooks and Shelton perform the track live, however. They’ll share the stage and deliver “Dive Bar” at the 53rd annual CMA Awards November 13, where the track is up for Musical Event of the Year.
