During a sold-out show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, Brett Young performed this song in honor of his then 3-month old daughter, Presley. Now, months later, “Lady” is released as the newest single from Young, who reached #1 on the country charts and #3 on Billboard with his prior single “Catch”.
“I hope you look just like your momma / 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”
The layer of emotion and unconditional love in this track is dense, you can nurture and feed on the authentic display of gratitude for both his wife and newborn. Lyrically, the 2017 “In Case You Didn’t Know” singer confides in his love, Taylor Mills Young, and welcomes the little one to take after her mother. Still, “Lady” does not fall short on the father-daughter dynamic. There are moments that exist solely to show how much Young cherishes his lady-in-the-making. The balance between the two makes it clear that the lessons will be derived from the woman in the relationship. Young pulls this idea from previous experience when his wife helped him get through hurdles and hard times.
“She’ll hear you / She’ll hold you / She’ll help you through / She’ll fix you / And she’ll fix me too”
The production parallels a traditional love song while also fulfilling the devotion to a child. Similarly, Kane Brown’s “For My Daughter” follows the same approach with “Good As You” completing the puzzle. “Lady” holds these two storylines, which are successfully told by the known vulnerability etched into the heartfelt ballads found in Brett Young’s discography.
