If there is any country artist who knows the importance of a music video in one’s career, it’s Dierks Bentley. The Capitol Nashville superstar’s first video -- for 2003’s “What Was I Thinkin'” -- definitely turned heads and helped to set him apart from the pack. Of course, he took home the 2014 CMA video of the year trophy for his hilarious “Drunk on A Plane.” What makes a great video in Dierks’ eyes? The Grand Ole Opry member, whose recent album, Black, debuted atop the Top Country Albums chart, says it’s a mixture of water skis, fire... and maybe a tractor? Here’s a recap of his five favorite country videos of all time.

See the All-Time Country Charts: Country Artists | Country Songs | Country Albums

1. "Chattahoochee," Alan Jackson“Seeing Alan in a cowboy hat and with water skis on has always cracked me up.”

2. "One More Last Chance," Vince Gill: “I love seeing George Jones passing Vince on the tractor on his way from the bar. I always thought that was very cool.”

3. "Hurt," Johnny Cash: “The video was so stark and so real, and those images were so strong.”

4. "New Favorite,"  Alison Krauss: “I always loved the slow motion, and it was such a rich video.”

5. "Kerosene," Miranda Lambert: “It’s hard to beat the image of her with the fire, the white tank top and that image.”
