Kane Brown has officially released his highly anticipated brand-new collaboration, “Thank God,” featuring his beautiful wife, Katelyn. In celebration of the fresh release, the country music artist is also debuting the accompanying video for the romantic track.
Co-written by Josh Hoge, Jaxson Free, Kyle Fishman, Christian Davis, and Jared Mullins, this spiritually-driven duet shines a light on the married couple’s special bond as they sing their gratitude for one another. Awestruck over how they’ve managed to find their way into each other’s lives for the better, Brown and his wife can’t help but believe a higher power had something to do with it.
Brown takes the lead with the song’s first verse before fans get to hear Katelyn’s stunning vocals for the first time during the second verse. The married couple then unites on the chorus, showcasing a flawless blend of beautiful harmony.
“So, thank God / I get to wake up by your side and thank God / Your hand fits perfectly in mine / And thank God / You loved me when you didn’t have to / But you did and you do and he knew / Thank God for giving me you / Oh, yeah, thank God / Thank God for giving me you (Oh, yeah-yeah, yeah),” the pair sing throughout the chorus of the ballad.
Sonically, “Thank God” features a shaker and the delicate sounds of picking acoustic guitar combined with a gentle slap beat. The accompaniment avoids drowning out The Browns’ vocals and instead puts them front and center as they share their undeniable and long-awaited musical chemistry with the world.
As for the music video, Brown and his wife, who was actively pursuing a solo career as an R&B/pop artist before meeting her husband, also star together, bringing their sizzling romance to life for all to see in the dreamy clip.
Directed by Alex Alvga and filmed in Hawaii, the clip opens up with the pair traveling in their vehicle side by side before they spend time together in what looks to be a dream vacation. Scenes capture the lovebirds lying down on a blanket outdoors, and being playful with each other on a lush trail in a bamboo forest. They relax while making memories together by slow dancing, swimming, and camping outdoors.
