Album: Oh, What A Life (2014)


  • Originally recorded for American Authors' self-titled debut EP, this song later appeared as the fourth track on their debut studio album Oh, What a Life. It was released on March 3, 2014 as the fourth single from the set.
  • The song's music video was shot at Sandilly's S & W Saloon, a roadside bar in Dickson, Tennessee, about an hour outside of Nashville. Country singer Colton James filmed his clip for "Date With Dixie" at the same venue.
  • Lead singer Zac Barnett explained the video's concept to MTV News. "I keep seeing these other, more positive visions of myself," he said. "I'm going through the video in one mental state, seeing what I could become, or maybe where I have been, and then you know, it shows that life can change."
