Ashley McBryde’s ‘A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega’ Video Finds a Cloud’s Silver Lining [Watch]
Ashley McBryde's "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" music video tells the story of a bad day turned upside down, but it's the singer's honest, been-there performance that makes the story so believable.
It's hard to imagine any characters in McBryde's new video as actors. It's a slice-of-life, blue collar, down-on-your-luck story that eventually becomes a cloud's silver lining. It could even be a love story, but the clip ends before fans get that far.
McBryde wrote "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" with Nicolette Hayford and Jesse Rice. They were all having a bad day, talking about other bad days. Rice shared a story about his car breaking down outside of Dahlonega. He ducked into a dive bar to mend his wounds over a beer and ended up meeting the woman of his dreams. Later they’d get married.
The Reid Long-directed music video was partially filmed at a bar near McBryde's home in Lebanon, Tenn. Dahlonega is a city in Georgia, about 65 miles north of Atlanta. The song is specific but tells a story many can relate to. The music video elaborates on an idea that has already become tremendously popular on satellite radio.
"Girl Goin' Nowhere" is another McBryde song that's earned her recognition as a new artist to watch in 2017 and beyond. The Memphis, Tenn., native's Jay Joyce produced album is expected later this year or in 2018.
