The shark guitar, locations, and more “Dive Bar” Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton music video

This duet between country icon Garth Brooks and megastar Blake Shelton now has a music video to go along with it. “Dive Bar,” the song, was released in the middle of 2019 after Brooks called on Shelton to join him on the track.

The video was premiered worldwide on TheBoot.com (click here for their article), and is also available on Garth’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Check out the video, then scroll down for more info!


The music video was directed by Garth Brooks himself. Director of Photography and operating the camera was Vance Burberry, who’s an expert in underwater cinematography. From his website

“My other passion I bring into my work is my love of the underwater world. I have been a diver for 40yrs and a NAUI Instructor trainer for 20yrs. I continue to teach including a professional underwater cinematography course which I wrote and is an official NAUI sanctioned course. I am able to bring my land cinematography and lighting skill set to any underwater film project.”

Everything underwater was in a pool at Splash! La Mirada Regional Aquatics Center in La Mirada, California. The band had to become scuba certified before shooting the video, as they’re wearing scuba gear about 15 feet underwater and also shredding various instruments. 🙂

Speaking of instruments, the “shark guitar” is a Glen Burton, and apparently when you strum the strings, markers on the neck of the guitar light up. Cool! You can pick one up for $281.99 at BridgeCraftUSA.com.

The bar scene at the end of the video was shot in Long Beach, California (referenced in behind-the-scenes video below), although according to the Ole Red website, these Blake-inspired restaurants are located in Gatlinburg, Nashville, Orlando, and Tishomingo, Oklahoma.

At least some of the equipment was provided by Quixote Studios, located in California.

Another fun connection between Devvon Terrell and Melii is his video for “Temperature” back in 2017. Melii stars as the love interest. Check it out here.

The song and video feature Daystar Peterson, a Canadian singer/rapper more well-known as Tory Lanez. As far as relationships go, I can’t find anything that says the pair are romantically linked in any other way besides being on the same record label, Interscope Records. How romantic [insert heart eyes emoji]

The video for “Slow For Me” was shot in Cafe La Trova, a nightclub/restaurant in Miami, Florida. Here are side by side pics from the video and the restaurant website.
