The video, directed by Tom Dyer (Rack-N-Roll Audio), was shot at Thompson's house and reflects the light-hearted nature of the single's tongue-in-cheek response to a breakup. Thompson sits idly by in a lawn chair, beer in hand, watching all of his possessions being tossed out the window. No props were used in the making of the video - all the items featured are Thompson's, including a deer target and a wall-mounted fish that he had caught during a trip to Lake Okeechobee.

"I definitely had the most fun I've ever had shooting this video," said Thompson. "It tells the story of the song perfectly, and you can't go wrong with spending the day sitting in a lawn chair with a beer."

"Turn It Up" also features lead single, "Cold Beer With Your Name On It" as well as nine tracks co-written by Thompson.
