NASHVILLE, Tenn - An abandoned warehouse in Nashville is the backdrop for Colton Dixon's first every music video shoot. Eric Walsh, who is directing the video, says it has a Tim Burton industrial feel to it. "When we found this location it felt like an old factory. We wanted to play that into his performance."
Despite this being Colton's first take, he says he is comfortable and says he hasAmerican Idol to thank. "Idol prepared us for a lot of this. We were always on camera, so they taught us how to look past a camera to those watchig. I am excited that I'm finally getting to use those tools."
The video is for his #1 single "Never Gone". Colton says he read a bunch of different scripts and with the guidance of his director, they pieced together the perfect storyline. "We didn't want to get too specific. But landed on the prodigal son story."
This is actually the second day of shooting for the video crew, day one was all about the actors. "I am going to cry when I watch it. I was getting choked up watching actors yesterday" says Colton, who can't wait for the video to be released, so fans can have something visual to go along with what has been one of his most popular songs.
