Coronavirus: Dierks Bentley ‘honored,’ Kentucky teachers use ‘Thinking Of You’ for school video

LOUISVILLE — A group of Kentucky teachers wanted to let their students know they were thinking of them amid the isolation caused by the coronavirus, so they created a video using the Dierks Bentley hit “Thinking Of You.”

Teachers at Binet School, a special needs school with students aged 5 to 21 years old, created the video while the school has been closed since March, Popculture reported.

"Binet we sure do miss you," a caption reads as images of the school are shown as the song starts to play. "We are always thinking of you!"

The video caught the eye of Bentley.

“Honored that a school in Louisville chose ‘Thinking Of You’ to put together a video for their students,” Bentley said on social media. “I’m thinking about you too.”

There are 1,393 confirmed cases and 73 deaths from the coronavirus in Kentucky, the New York Times reported.
