Brantley Gilbert paid tribute to his wife, Amber Cochran Gilbert, and their daughter, Braylen Hendrix Gilbert, with his latest music video.
The music video for his sentimental tune, “How To Talk To Girls,” made its debut on Thursday evening (Jan. 27) and not only does it honor his wife and their 2-year-old daughter, but it also features clips of precious memories he shared with them intertwined with footage of him performing the track live.
“’Cause this angel hangs on every word I say / She’s gettin’ so much more from me than my last name / Everything just like her momma / She’s got me at a loss for words / I guess I’m still learnin’ / How to talk to girls,” Gilbert sings on the chorus.
Watch the music video for “How To Talk To Girls” below.
The “extremely special” track was co-written by Gilbert alongside Brock Berryhill, Brian Wayne Davis, Brandon Day, Chase McGill, Josh Phillips, Taylor Phillips and Michael Ray, with the “two most important women” in Gilbert’s life, his wife and daughter, in mind and serves as a tribute to them.
“I started writing this song with my wife and daughter in mind…” Gilbert shared of the song’s inspiration. “I’ve known [Amber] since we were kids, and we’ve been married for 6 years now. I’m still in awe of her. Then my daughter came along, and I realized I still struggle to find the right words to say to the girls I love.”
The song allows fans to see a different side of the self-proclaimed “bad boy,” bringing out the vulnerable side of the Georgia native that reminds fans he’s more than meets the eye.
Gilbert also recently shared in a Facebook Live that the new song is “really close to my heart. It’s one that I’m proud to say I wrote, and I’m proud to sing, and I hope you guys and girls dig it.”
“How To Talk To Girls” follows the release of “Gone But Not Forgotten,” which was shared on Veterans Day to honor servicemen and women, first responders and all those who we rely on to keep us safe day in and day out.
Both tracks are expected to appear on Gilbert’s yet-to-be announced new album.
