See Dierks Bentley Songwriter Steve Moakler’s Reflective ‘Wheels’ Video

Nostalgic track, written with Caitlyn Smith, is the latest release from Pittsburgh native’s ‘Steel Town’ LP

Steve Moakler’s new single “Wheels” recounts many of the ways that wheels have afforded freedom, while also pointing out how quickly they can enable us to speed past life’s more precious moments. In a nostalgic video for the song, the co-writer of Dierks Bentley’s inspirational “Riser,” uses the theme as a metaphor for the circle of life, as a boy graduates to various sets of wheels: from baby stroller to his own car. All the while, various circular objects – clocks, film reels – flash across the screen, driving home the notion that time is fleeting.

“Wheels,” written by Moakler with Caitlyn Smith and Gordie Sampson, is taken from Moakler’s new album Steel Town. The title track, penned by the Pittsburgh native with Casey Beathard, is a loving tribute to Moakler’s Pennsylvania hometown.

Pittsburgh is an amazing place full of hard working, passionate, beer drinking, warm and welcoming people,” Moakler tells Rolling Stone Country. “It was a great place to grow up and the older I get, the more I can see how much it has shaped who I am and the more I hope it shapes who I become.”

Moakler is currently headlining the SiriusXM Highway Finds Tour, with Drew Baldridge and the duo Smithfield. The tour stops in Cleveland on March 22nd.
