The visual was filmed at the historical New Braunfels, Gruene Hall, hailed as Texas’ oldest dance hall. The video starts with McCreery walking into the venue and all you can hear are his footsteps, a distant train, a dog barking, and other natural sounds.  The video is set up with text that reads: “In the fall of 1975, the first of what would be many performances by ‘Ace in the Hole Band’ took place at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, TX. For six years, the band was a Gruene Hall fixture, spending what little free time they had between shows traveling to Nashville in hopes of landing a record deal.” “In 1981, after several failed attempts at a recording contract, the group made one last trip to Music City, resolving, ‘If it doesn’t happen this time, it will be our last try.’ By year’s end, Ace’s lead singer, George Strait, would make his major-label debut with the release of Strait Country. The album marked the beginning of a country giant’s decades-long career. The album’s iconic cover would be photographed at Gruene Hall.”
