"The Ride" is the second of three videos filmed at The Sutler in Nashville during the Cellar Sessions. Directed by Brian Harstine (Dolly Parton, Ke$ha), the clip features dramatic lighting and tight camera shots of the artist. Denny's powerful performance is among his finest; the smoky, speakeasy lounge setting draws viewers in to a whiskey-soaked world where the hint of destiny hangs in the air. Strickland admits this is one of his favorite songs of any genre. "It's a tribute to the 'outlaws' of the past," he observes. "The struggle is real, and the song does a fine job of expressing that lyrically while paying respect to the late Hank Williams Sr." Denny often plays the song during his extended acoustic shows.
The talented Arkansas native is currently writing songs and working in the studio to finish his upcoming EP. In June, fans can find him in his own booth at CMA Music Festival 2016, and catch him in full-band performances at Nashville hot spots throughout the week.
