“King Me” is classic country song that portrays family ties and issues of young adulthood. The recently released single received critical acclaim in the Music City. Critic Robert K. Oermann of Music Row describes the narrative as “sung with heart, produced with taste and written with class.”

A master storyteller, Gibson expertly draws upon his own relationships with the family members who helped raise him in a single-parent household in west Texas.

The video was filmed in Goodslettsville, Tennessee, at a ramshackle former country store owned by a man who ironically reminded Gibson of his own grandfather. Eerily, the former general store had a story of its own: in 1934 it was the site of a grizzly murder after an angry customer slaughtered the store owner with an ax.

This is one of several collaborations between Gibson and one of his writing partners, Craig Monday. “I can’t think of when I’ve enjoyed an experience more,” says Gibson, summing up both the collaboration and the filming. Monday, as well as Gibson’s wife, songstress Daisy Dern, and their daughter, Savannah, all appear in the video.

“King Me” is done in the manner that Gibson likes most: a narrative piece with a surprise ending, delivered with his trademark sense of irony.

“Dave Gibson's consummate storytelling abilities are clearly underscored in the music video 'King Me,'” says Jeff Cohen, the Chief Executive Officer of Savannah Music Group. The video was produced by Laurie Spoon and directed and videographed by Mark Dreyer.
