Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley Release ‘Flatliner’ Music Video
Bentley and Swindell are out on the road together, on Bentley's What the Hell World Tour, so the two country stars are used to performing "Flatliner" together live, and they wanted to bring that energy to the the party anthem's official music video. Swindell co-wrote the song with Jaron Boyer and Matt Bronleewe almost four years, with Bentley in mind; the tune is the first track on Swindell's sophomore album, You Should Be Here, but he never imagined that he would be able to actually sing it with Bentley.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think he would record it with me for my own album one day. And here we are," Swindell tells the Tennessean. "[Performing "Flatliner" with Bentley on tour] is such a fun, highly energized and, honestly, surreal moment each and every night of the tour for me that there was no question in my mind of how I wanted to capture this video.”
Bentley and Swindell perfectly complement each other on the high-octane track, their gravelly vocals and slick harmonies mixing with hard-rocking guitars and heavy drum beats. In the song's chorus, the two sing, "Sippin' on this 7-7, never been this close to heaven / Got her pretty turned up to 11 / Droppin' 'em dead on the dance floor / Somebody better call a doctor / She's a little heart stopper / I'm talkin' breaker-breaker one-niner / She's a flatliner ..."
"Flatliner" is Swindell's third single off of You Should Be Here. It is available for download on iTunes.
