Its Better This Way: Doug Strahm’s country song about a man who struggles with coming out.
Singer-songwriter, Doug Strahm, plays a closeted construction worker, in his newest video “Its Better This Way.” Strahm’s character has feeling for and is in a secret relationship with his much more confident co-worker (Chris Miklos). The secrecy, embodied through Strahm’s embarrassment and fear of coming out to his friends, family and co-workers, begins to take its tole on their relationship. Until, at last, Strahm’s fear begins to morph, with the help of his love, into courage. Pushing through some of his friends and co-workers at the local sports bar he embraces and kisses Miklos, finally coming-out to his friends and co-works, who all erupt in a spontaneous hootenanny. In my very humble opinion, country music is certainly, better this way.
