The video was filmed in the El Mirage desert, about 90 miles north east of Los Angeles. The day was hot, dry and windy – even a sand cyclone appeared.
“This is my first desert video – I always said I wouldn’t do one of those cliché desert videos but Robert (Deaton) pitched his idea and it all made sense,” says Paisley. “It’s a big metaphor – Carrie and I are in a desert walking towards one another. It’s as symbolic as it gets in reference to the song.”
“It was important to us that the video be shot with a sophisticated approach,” added Underwood. “The song and recording came together in such a wonderful, natural way. We wanted the video to also be something we could be proud of...and we are!”
