Kix Brooks does a little time traveling in his new video, “New to This Town,” which tells the story of a guy wishing he could go back in time before he ever met his ex-love interest.  Kix’s son Eric is an aspiring filmmaker, and the concept for the video was actually his idea.

“He wrote this treatment backwards,” Kix says of the somewhat complicated video. “It’s like, the only way to be new to this town would be to turn back the hands of time, so it’s this story of love and heartbreak, and it not only plays out in reverse, but we filmed it backwards, and I’m moving forward through this love story that’s in reverse.”

If you didn’t get all that, don’t worry.  Kix assures fans, “Everybody’s gonna have to watch it at least five times to figure out what in the heck they are lookin’ at.”

A lot of long hours went into the video shoot too.

“Technically, it was pretty complicated and some pretty tedious business,” Kix explains.  “A lot of patience involved.  But now to look at it, it’s really interesting, and it turned out great, and I’m excited about it.”

“New to This Town” is the lead single from Kix’s upcoming debut album, due out in the coming months.
