Miranda Lambert debuted her newest music video for "Settling Down" and sticking to the song's message, showcased her husband, Brendan McLoughlin. The video also was the first one in her career to feature a love interest of hers, making the moment that much more special for the two of them. The couple tied the knot back in Jan. 2019. Lambert dropped the video shortly after 6 p.m. ET and held an Instagram Live Q&A ahead of the premiere for her fans.
Lambert's "Settling Down" was the fourth track on her seventh studio album, Wildcard, which came out on Nov. 1, 2019. The song received new life after Lambert released it as a single — her third off of that album, which included "Bluebird" — this September. Since hitting the radio, the song's video has been hyped up immensely over the past couple of days with numerous teases posted by Lambert, including multiple behind-the-scenes clips with her and her husband. The Texas native told New York's Country 94.7 before the video release that she was very proud of McLoughlin's debut, "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."
