Miranda Lambert giggles at the thought. She just wanted to give the world the treat of seeing her husband, aka “the video babe,” shirtless in her newest music video.
Lambert was on the Bobby Bones show Thursday to chat about topics near and dear to her heart – her husband, her music and her dogs.
Bones asked her about casting her own husband, Brendan McLoughlin, in the video for “Settling Down,” which was released last month. Lambert said she told him:
“I’m casting you as the video babe. You’re here and you’re going to do it.”
“I mean I kind of had to,” Lambert said. “I didn’t want to rob the world of that. If you have that (abs, body) you should use it. I don’t, so I don’t.”
Lambert filmed the music video on her 400-acre farm an hour’s drive south of Nashville. She said it was the first time she had “romance” in one of her videos. So casting her husband was a perfect choice. The two, who married in February of 2019, still are newlyweds.
In the video, Lambert and McLoughlin can be seen in several romantic moments. The two are reclining in a hammock. Or, McLoughlin is cooking, shirtless, for Lambert. In another scene, Lambert is riding her horse, Gibson. She’s dressed in a cape and a long, flowy dress. We see at the end of the video she’s riding to a rendezvous with her husband, who is dressed in a dark suit.
Lambert bragged that her husband “was such a good sport.”
