Dierks Bentley’s video for his latest single, “Tip It On Back,” was shot in Athens, Georgia at the famed Georgia Theatre, a year after re-opening from a devastating fire in 2009. The Arizona native says the venue is one of his favorites. “I played there three times before I sold it out, and my brother went to school down there.”  “I’ve always loved that theater, and there’s certain clubs along the way when you’re playing those club dates that when you sell them out, it’s a big deal. Selling out the Georgia Theater is a milestone for any country singer. When it burned down, I’m not from Georgia, but I really love that place and it really affected me. I went down there and visited and just the walls were standing. When it came time to make this video, we knew we wanted to shoot it somewhere kind of college-y, and really just Athens [Georgia] and knowing that place was back open again, I wanted to shoot it there.”

Dierks, who is closing in on the Top 10 with “Tip It On Back,” will begin rehearsals soon for his Locked and Reloaded Tour with Miranda Lambert January 17th in Columbia, South Carolina.
