Blake Shelton released his new "She's Got a Way With Words" video on Tuesday, and watching the full 3-minute video is a treat. To the shock of most everyone, the video was shot in a dentist's office. Of course, Shelton filmed his new music video after making modifications to the office, but if you take a closer look at the door, it still looks like it is meant to keep all those screams in.
In an interview with People, Shelton shared that he returned to his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma, to film "She's Got a Way With Words." In a behind-the-scenes look at his new video, the country singer said, "It was the dentist's office, believe it or not, before I bought it."
"We did gut the building so we could do this video," he explained. "And this is making for the perfect backdrop." As for turning the dentist office into a bar, Shelton says that he and his crew used their imagination.
In his music video, Shelton, who just celebrated his 40th birthday on June 18, can be seen sitting at a poker table with some friends and some cold ones while he sings his breakup song. "When you're puttin' two and two together, you figure out love's got four letters," Shelton starts his song.
The lyrics of "She's Got a Way with Words" were penned by Andy Albert, Marc Beeson and Wyatt Earp. The song is the second single on Shelton's new album "If I'm Honest."
Following the poker table scene, the singer shoots some pool with friends and appears at a bar enjoying some beer with his band. Shelton's friends in the clip include his band members, poker bodies, and a couple of females who seem to be the kind of girls a guy can hang out with.
As for the song's lyrics, Shelton says that "there's just a hint of sarcasm in this one." "I have high hopes for this one," the country singer said.
Watching Blake Shelton's "She's Got a Way With Words" new music video a second time without sound is an interesting experience.
The opening scene shows the singer coming out of a light, then he sits with friends at a table telling (singing) his story, then being alone again, and then returning to the scene with his friends - listening and nodding to his words. The scenes are followed by teeth in a day procedure Shelton playing with his band.
After the recurring switch from being alone to playing poker with listening friends (male and female) to playing with his band, the singer is shown laughing and in good spirits at the bar. What more does a guy need to move on after a painful breakup?
In the final scene of the music video, the camera (again using excellent lighting) moves to the main theme of Blake Shelton's song. Words can hurt -- and heal.
