Nashville, Tenn. (Sept. 15, 2017) – USA Today and The Tennessean exclusively premiere Colton Dixon’s latest music video, “The Other Side,” from the artist’s critically acclaimed Identity (March 24).
One of the most personal songs for Dixon from the album, the music video for “The Other Side” shares the powerful stories of two families reflecting on the passing of loved ones; Dixon’s own wife’s late brother, as well as a young fan touched by Dixon’s music. The music video instills a sense of hope in the midst of tragedy.
“This music video means so much to me – to have my wife Annie and her family be a part of it, and to have Lexi’s family there as well. It’s so hard to put into words the emotion we felt filming that day,” says Dixon. “Their involvement speaks to the greater message of this song – that death doesn’t have the final say because of the hope that’s promised to us on the other side.”
Dixon will be performing on the Air1 Positive Hits Tour alongside GRAMMY® nominees Skillet and Britt Nicole, with special guests Tauren Wells and Gawvi. With almost 30 shows, the tour will travel to cities including Nashville, Seattle, Denver, Kansas City and more.
