I can’t say for certain, because I haven’t actually seen every single country music video ever released, but Dan + Shay’s new video for “Tequila” has to be the first country music video to feature a love story between a hearing impaired man and a cute girl bartender.
Fans pick up the love story during a snow-filled hike in Colorado when cute bartender girl and a friend happen upon a man sitting alone in a field. Since he’s deaf, he doesn’t respond to their screams, so they assume the worst. Despite the language barrier, the cute bartender girl and the lonely hiker begin to spend time together and while they’re alone in the mountains sitting on the hood of his incredibly old and likely unreliable truck, they taste tequila together for the first time.
While “Tequila” is already an official hit for the duo, the captivating and unique love story in the video is only going to bring in new fans and listeners. Because, like I said earlier, this has to be a first in country music story-telling.
Dan + Shay are currently in the studio working on their highly-anticipated third studio album, expected for release later this year. Fans can catch the duo live this summer as they join Rascal Flatts on their Back To Us Tour.
