DIERKS BENTLEY found the inspiration for his “Riser” video from a segment on “60 Minutes”about families living out of their cars.  The video follows the real life story of a mother of two named Amy Thomas.

He explains quote, “The first thing I thought when I met Amy was you would have never known she’d been living out of her car with two kids.

“Her story is such a solid example that there are people we pass every day who are going through tough times.  I really wanted this video to reflect the risers among us, so it was important to me that the storyline follow something real.”
