Andrew Combs Premieres “Dry Eyes” Video Via Rolling Stone Country

Speaking to Rolling Stone Country, Combs said “‘Dry Eyes’ is the only classic ‘you did me wrong’ relationship song on this new record. I wrote it with my pal Burton Collins, who is a great lyricist here in Nashville. It’s about a former bride who did not know how to show any emotions, even in the face of a dissolving relationship. The narrator is trying to make sense of someone so callous, while at the same time trying to erase them from their own memory. The video was shot by Austin Leih, a ridiculously talented filmmaker in Austin, Texas. We did not have a whole lot of time or money, so the idea was simple – man flees the spell of a woman. Her memory haunts him in many mystical forms.”
