Shot over two days near Leiper's Fork, Tenn., the video incorporates images of a wide-open field, motorcycles on a country road, rural neighbors in a small-town diner and an American flag, backed by snippets of Gilbert's current single, "The Ones That Like Me," plus Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama," Kendrick Lamar's "Backseat Freestyle" and Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild." Other acts whose names are visible in Gilbert's playlist include Johnny Cash, Metallica and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
Gilbert said Apple's plan to capture his lifestyle won him over. "To me, when you're being real, that's the best way to chase the music," he said. "When you're doing that, you're hitting right up in the place where the songs come from."
