Dierks Bentley took inspiration from his wife of more than a decade, Cassidy, for his new single, “Black.” The title just happens to be her maiden name, and it only makes sense she’s featured in the video for the song.
Oh, and this video definitely features Cassidy like we’ve never seen her before.
In between the stunningly beautiful shots of the couple on location in Iceland, the video for “Black” also includes very intimate close-up shots of Dierks and Cassidy in the bedroom. Cassidy is wearing nothing but black underwear in the shots, so it’s no wonder Dierks had to twist her arm a little bit to get her to star in the sexy clip.
He says, “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.”
As for that stunning location, Dierks had been dreaming of filming a video in Iceland for about a year now. The conditions were extremely frigid and a little dangerous for the four-day shoot, but Dierks thinks it was all worth the effort.
“I think the end result is something really special,” Dierks adds, “and it was a trip of a lifetime for everyone involved.”
