Miranda Lambert’s new “Settling Down” music video is here and it’s absolutely stunning.

Directed by Lambert’s longtime collaborator, Trey Fanjoy, the video co-stars Lambert and her real-life husband Brendan McLoughlin.

The music video features striking imagery of Lambert’s picturesque Tennessee farm and showcases the couple together at home enjoying each other’s company. From fishing on the pond to flirty cooking in the kitchen, this video proves there’s no doubt that Lambert and McLoughlin were made for each other.

The clip also features shots of Lambert riding on her horse, Gibson, while McLoughlin awaits her arrival at home.

“The ‘Settling Down’ video is very personal to me because it was filmed at my farm and my husband got to be in the video with me,” the superstar shared. “My mom always called me a wild child and a homing pigeon. I always have an itch to find a new adventure, but I’m also always ready to walk through my front door. I feel like a lot of people feel that way, and ‘Settling Down’ tells the story of being caught between those two feelings.”

Having a significant other star in a music video marks a career-first for Lambert.

“I’ve never had a video in 18 years in the business with a love interest, and so it’s kinda funny that my husband’s my first one,” she recently told RADIO.COM‘s Kelly Ford. “I’m like, ‘you’re cute, you’re here, and you’re free.’ It was fun; he did such a great job… and our little dog is in it, and our ponies. It’s at my magical-happy place an hour away from Nashville.”

“Settling Down” is the latest single from Lambert’s 2019 album, Wildcard.
