Country star, Dierks Bentley released an adorable video for his current single “Living”. The video shows Bentley going around town doing tons of fun activities with his son, Knox. “It’s basically just me and Knox, just a day in the life,” Bentley explains to People. “The two of us, just doing what we’re doing when we’re off the road, which is a lot. We pack a lot into one every day.”
Watch the video below!
His latest album The Mountain is all about appreciating life and nature. The opening lyrics of “Living”: “This morning I got up at 6:01, I walked out and saw the rising sun and I drank in it, like whiskey”; one would believe he got up voluntarily to watch the sunrise. However, the video puts an ironic twist to it as Knox runs down the stairs and jumps on his father. Bentley gets out of bed looking exhausted and steps on his son’s toys as the sun from the window blinds him; definitely not drinking it in like whiskey. To Bentley’s displeasure, Knox begins to play the drums. His father comes in the room to stop him but then Bentley sees the look on his son’s face and picks up a guitar and the two start a jam session at six in the morning.
After spending time in the backyard, Bentley and Knox hit the road for some more fun activities including the Water Park, the arcade laser tag, karaoke, go-carting, ice cream and more. At the ice cream parlor, Bentley gets jealous of his son when the attractive women behind the counter starts to flirt with Knox.
At the end of the video, Bentley and Knox cash in their tickets to win a big plush bear at the prize stand. As they are walking back to their car, they pass a mother holding her young daughter’s hand. Knox, being the little gentleman he is, runs back and gives the little girl the big stuffed bear. The two hug and Knox runs back to Bentley, who high fives his son. A heart-warming moment to an already loveable music video.
This video emphasizes the difference between breathing and living. You have to appreciate your life and take advantage of every opportunity you get. Living for Bentley is spending quality time with his son and he does not want to miss out on his time being a father.
Knox’s is Bentley’s youngest child at five years old. He has two other daughters, Evalyn “Evie” Day (10) and Jordan Catherine (8).
You can see Bentley on his Burning Man Tour with Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and Hot Country Knights. The tour is stopping at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ July 26th and at Jones Beach on Long Island August 2nd.
