Directed by Tristan Cusick, the new video finds the pair of country singers taking over some open land in Middle Tennessee with their tailgates down as a group of boys tear up the dirt with their bikes, race cars and four-wheelers. After Marlowe tackles the opening verse of the upbeat tune, the setting shifts to a blazing bonfire and full kegs as Scott enters with his Louisiana twang.
A Rowdy Collaboration
“Yeah, here’s to the boys back home/ Drinking dirt road beers/ On a Friday night/ Yeah, I’m wishing I was with y’all/ Singing them old songs/ Trucks circled up ’round a farm fire/ Putting paint on that small town/ Turning dirt into them dust clouds/ Hell yeah, it’s been too long/ This one right here’s to the boys back home,” Marlowe and Scott sing on the chorus.
Which Country Star Makes A Surprise Cameo?
Towards the end of the clip, fellow country star Russell Dickerson brings his good energy and a bit of extra chaos onto the scene in a surprise cameo. He shuffles in on a decked-out ride to help his friends belt out the final lines of the epic track penned by Marlowe with Joe Fox and Seth Ennis.
The video perfectly captures the song’s message which pays tribute to the irreplaceable feeling of a southern night spent with your hometown crowd where keg stands, beer pong and wheelbarrow races are a must. There’s no telling what could happen when this kind of group gets together, but it’s pretty much guaranteed that a good time will be had under the stars.
“I wrote ‘Boys Back Home’ with Joe Fox and Seth Ennis because I got homesick when I moved to Nashville and missed all of my friends back home,” Marlowe said while recounting the story behind the song.

Marlowe And Scott Connected On The Road
He went on to explain that the idea to bring Scott onto the project came as a result of their strong bond that formed during his first stint of shows on the road.
“Dylan Scott took me on my first tour and I ended up showing him the song on the road. He loved it and I ended up asking him to sing on it with me. A year and a half in the making and I’m excited for the fans to finally have it,” he shared around the time of the song’s release.
With over 33 million total global streams, “Boys Back Home” is impacting country radio now. This Friday, the Statesboro, Georgia native is set to deliver a follow-up to his most recent releases, “Boys Back Home,” “You Did It Too.” He has already shared sneak peeks into the unreleased tune via social media.
A Year Packed Full Of Touring
Coming off his opening stint on HARDY’sthe mockingbird and THE CROW FALL TOUR along with Lainey Wilson, Marlowe is set to kick off his headline DIRT ROAD WHEN I DIE TOUR this Thursday in Mobile, AL.
