The director is Kristin Barlowe. From an article about Kristin at

Meet Kristin Barlowe, a well-respected Nashville-based photographer and director of hundreds of music videos. She has seen Nashville grow as a city while her craft, capturing images, has also changed dramatically. Creative, talented, and gracious, Kristin is a true FACE of Nashville. See the full article HERE

She’s had some big time clients from the photos shown in the gallery of photos in the article! And her list of 282 credits at Impressive! Or check out THIS photo shoot for Kolby Gray by Kirstin. The location with the windows looks like the same set for Danny’s “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me” video.

There’s also a Director’s Reel- Kristin Barlowe from Revolution Pictures on Vimeo.

We discovered the dancer is  Andrea Vierra when we saw this post on Danny’s Facebook page:

This is the dancer. It was so wonderful to be a part of your music video! I can’t wait to see the whole thing! Do you mind if I share your photo?

…..His music is beautiful, it’ll be an awesome video!

  1. I’m intrigued by the dancing, too, Ellen. I enjoyed seeing the dancing whenTYHTBA was played for “America’s Got Talent”.

    I’d like to see the video rather stripped down. Danny has occasionally put too much story line in a song video (HIFOM, IWNSGB) for my preference. The simple lyric video for HIFOM has a lot more views than the official video….

    I am looking forward to this. It looks like a great director/photogragher and dancer are involved 🙂
