Songfacts®:

  • The song's music video shows Lynch performing in front of a large crowd, using footage from various shows. "I love having this as my first live video because it fits perfectly with "Hell of a Night" as a song - it's that same energy and upbeat thing that we try to have," Lynch explained. "We bring a rockin' party every night, and that's what the song is about."

    "It was important for us to show the world what the shows are like, too," he added. "I still think there's a lot of people that know me for 'Cowboys and Angels,' which is a very country ballad, and I think it's a surprise when people show up to our show and it's as intense and high-octane as it is."
