Cole Swindell stops hearts in his brand new music video for "Flatliner," his pop-country anthem with Dierks Bentley. Featured on his latest studio record, You Should Be Here, the song is an ode to the overwhelming effects a woman has on Swindell. "Somebody better call the doctor. She's a little heart-stopper," they sing in unison. The track fuses heavy guitar tones with a driving melody. It was co-written by Swindell, with Jaron Boyer and Matt Bronleewe, and serves as the album's third official single--following his most recent No. 1 hit "Middle of a Memory" (which went gold in January).
In the visual, which dropped this week, Swindell and Bentley show off their live performance style, as the roar of the crowd sets in over the soft pulse of an electrocardiogram monitor. The thrill of the open road is then unleashed with various cameras capturing the moment in real time. On how the song came together, Swindell previously said: "I wrote the song for Dierks around four years ago. I wrote it for him, sent it to him, and never heard from him. I don’t know if he heard it or didn’t like it...but a year or so ago, I was texting with him, and sent it to him, and he loved it. We talked about it for a while, and sure enough, we got to do it, and it’s gonna be awesome. I’m just very excited to be singing with Dierks.”
Swindell and Bentley are set to perform "Flatliner" on Sunday's (April 2) 52nd annual ACM Awards. Bentley and Luke Bryan are expected to co-host the show for the second time. The show airs live on CBS at 8/7c.
