Elle King and Dierks Bentley debuted the official music video for their latest collaboration, “Worth A Shot”.

The concept was created and written by King, who collaborated with directors Stephen Kinigopoulos and Alexa Stone (Running Bear Films). Filmed Murfreesboro, TN, the video flashes back to the Wild West in the late 1800s where King and Bentley star as husband-and-wife characters. With wanted signs, a liquor-filled saloon, and a shot for shot duel, the cinematic video is an unexpected take on the “highly engaging” (MusicRow) tune.

“Worth A Shot” is the second time King and Bentley have teamed up, following their Grammy-nominated, CMA Award winning, No. 1 hit “Different for Girls.” The song is the follow up to King’s smash single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home)” with Miranda Lambert. The Grammy Nominated, certified Platinum hit reached #1 on both Billboard’s Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Charts. The #1 marked the first woman-woman collaboration to reach the top spot on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart since Reba McEntire and Linda Davis’ “Does He Love Me” in 1993 which was also the only one on the 1990 launched airplay chart.

Following her headline Drunk And I Don’t Wanna Go Home Tour, King is currently hitting the road with Chris Stapleton as part of his All American Roadshow Tour.

Multi-platinum, award-winning recording artist Elle King has enjoyed nearly 1.7 billion streams worldwide. King spent the better part of 2021 supporting her #1 hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home) with Miranda Lambert, which has amassed over 275 million on-demand streams worldwide, and hit #1 on both Billboard’s Rock Digital Sales Chart and Country Digital Sales Chart upon release. The track not only garnered a nomination for Musical Event of the Year at the 2021 CMA Awards, but earned King her fourth Grammy nomination (Best Country Duo/Group Performance). Additionally, the track marked King as the first female artist in history to have scored four radio No. 1 singles on different formats including Adult Pop Songs, Adult Alternative Songs, Alternative Songs and Country Airplay charts.

Her debut album Love Stuff featured her breakthrough single “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which earned her two GRAMMY nominations and is certified 4x times platinum. The breakthrough single hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart, topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach No. 1 at the latter format. Her single “Shame,” featured on her second studio album Shake The Spirit marked King’s fourth radio #1 single. Prior to the release of her current single “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home),” King released her latest EP Elle King: In Isolation in summer of 2020, a collection of raw demos/songs she’s recorded acoustically while quarantining at home.

Dierks Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams and 21 career chart-topping singles including his recent No. One “Beers On Me” featuring BRELAND and HARDY. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge ”(New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on his latest full-length release THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and he continues to surprise fans, most recently with his LIVE FROM TELLURIDE collection that was touted as “a gift that Country music fans didn’t know they needed” (The Tennesseean).

Having amassed countless nominations from the ACM’s, CMA’s, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations, Bentley has also been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 16 years. He has created professional endeavors outside of music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, and his live-music restaurant and bar franchise “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” hosts four locations. Bentley will launch his BEERS ON ME TOUR with special guests Ashley McBryde and Travis Denning in June ahead of his SEVEN PEAKS MUSIC FESTIVAL this Labor Day Weekend in Villa Grove, CO.
