Drake White Shares Real Life in ‘Livin’ the Dream’ Lyric Video [Watch]

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Drake White is living the life in his new lyric video for “Livin’ the Dream,” which premiered in January.

The video was directed by Matt Zervos and filmed on White’s beautiful farm in Nashville, Tenn. It includes scenes of him riding around on his big, red tractor, walking the grounds with his wife, Alex, and time spent chopping wood.

“We’ve been out there a year-and-a-half,” he tells Rare Country. “I’ve got a little pond on the property. Got some dogs. That’s kind of my happy spot. That’s where I go to chill out and relax.”

The lyric video shows life at home for White as he explains he’s always been a “do-it-yourself guy,” as scenes of him chopping wood, building a bonfire and lounging around with his wife can attest.

“I am a strong advocate for a good fire,” he adds. “I love a good fire and sitting around it. There’s a magic that can be sucked out of you around a fire. You know, a man who cuts his own wood gets warmed by it twice.”

Meanwhile, on the track White sings of an “old Ford truck with a dog in the back” as the video paints exactly this picture in one of its scenes.

“Livin’ The Dream” was written by Tom Douglas, the Cadillac Three‘s Jaren Johnson and Luke Laird. Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover produced the track.

Named by many as an artist to watch in 2016, White has previously shared tours with Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Zac Brown Band and Little Big Town.
