At a time when the world seems heavy and the news is filled with heartache, Brett Young, wife Taylor and baby girl Presley are delivering a music video so full of innocence, hope and unconditional love, it makes it easier to breathe.
Brett dropped the music video for his current single, “Lady,” on June 17th and in it, fans are treated to a cinematic scrapbook of the Young family. Misty images of both Mother and Daddy cradling their giggly, blue-eyed cherub, peppering her with baby kisses, splashing in the pool, fill the screen and paint an ethereal portrait of parenting. As adoringly as the new parents gaze upon their daughter, the vast amount of love that they feel for each other is equally evident when they lock eyes.
Brett took to Instagram to share the news of his his new video. “It’s finally here. I hope you guys can feel the love that’s deeply rooted in this song and see how the video really brings it to life.”
It’s easy to get so lost in the visual that you forget the message that lies in the lyrics. At first blush, it may sound like “Lady” is an ode to his baby girl. But what Brett is actually doing is honoring his wife by advising his daughter to look to her as the example of the woman he hopes she will become.
“I hope you look just like your mama/ And love her like I do / You’ll see close to perfect patience if you watch her every move / You can always run to daddy / You’ll always be my baby / But look at her, baby girl, and you’ll learn how to be a lady,” he sings in the chorus.
Baby Presley hasn’t celebrated her first birthday yet, but as quickly as little ones grow up, Brett and Taylor will be as grateful that they have this bit of magic as we are that they shared it.
