Chris Young tackles the sometimes devastating consequences of drinking and driving in his emotional new video for “Sober Saturday Night.”
Young’s latest single, which features backing vocals from Vince Gill, follows the story of a man dealing with intense heartbreak. The country star’s new video follows a couple pulled apart during a tumultuous evening at the bar.
“Sober Saturday Night” was directed by David Poag, was filmed in the small towns of Culleoka and Columbia, Tenn. Young wisely opts to dive into a moment that changes a relationship forever while tackling a still taboo subject. It follows closely in the footsteps of Chris Stapleton’s recent video for “Fire Away,” by showing how one’s struggle with a disease can change everything in an instant.
Chris Young has always been one of the few mainstream artists who manages to focus on meaningful storytelling, even with polished production behind it. Props to Young for choosing to go the extra mile for this one.
Later this year, Young will embark on the I’m Comin’ Over Tour, which will hit 25 cities across the country. You can find a full list of his upcoming concert dates at his official website.
