A song about how much he loves his wife; a topic that ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Thomas Rhett sings about best. Nashville’s biggest family man was back at it, releasing the music video for his lead single “Look What God Gave Her” from his upcoming album, Center Point Road. Watch it below:
In a color-blasted, CGI-built set, the video shows Rhett dancing, playing guitar, drumming and of course, singing to his wife, Lauren Akins. His children, Willa Gray and Ada James, the women from Nashville’s Thistle Farms and the founder of Love + One, a Christian organization that helps at-risk children and families in Uganda, were also featured in this video.
“When we started talking about the music video, it was natural to include Lauren, but I also wanted to include other inspirational women who are doing some amazing things,” said Thomas Rhett in a recent press release. “Rather than hire actors for the video we connected with the founder of Love One and her family, the women of Thistle Farms and an incredible artist who also did our art for the single cover to come be featured. Being able to spotlight them and celebrate these strong women along with my wife and daughters was such a special experience.”
Throughout the video, you see artist Syndey Clawson, daughter of hit songwriter Rodney Clawson, in a green jumpsuit creating something with black paint on the ground. As the video fades out, a painting of Rhett is revealed; a cool ending to a very artistic music video.
Akins has appeared in many of Rhett’s videos in the past such as “Die a Happy Man”, “Vacation”, “and Star of the Show”, “Craving You” and Life Changes”. This is ironic because Rhett says she is not totally comfortable with starring in these videos. “Lauren is the best sport, especially since she doesn’t love being in front of the camera,” Rhett told CMT.
Like most of Rhett’s videos, “Look What God Gave Her” was directed by TK McKamy. McKamy has directed videos for Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Chris Lane, RaeLynn and many other country artists. He has won two CMT awards including the 2016 Male Video of the Year for Rhett’s “Die a Happy Man” and the 2017 Duo Video of the Year for FGL’s “H.O.L.Y.”, and two CMA awards including the 2015 Video of the Year for Maddie & Tae’s “Girl in a Country Song” and the 2018 Video of the Year for Rhett’s “Marry Me”.
New Yorkers can catch Rhett on his Very Hot Summer Tour in Holmdel, New Jersey at PNC Banks Art Center, and New York at Madison Square Garden. Dustin Lynch, Russell Dickerson, and his father, Rhett Akins will be joining him. For tickets and more info click here.
