by Chris Haney

On Tuesday, country star Luke Bryan shared a short clip of a brand new music video for his song “Build Me A Daddy” featuring fan-submitted photos.

The song is on Bryan’s newest album Born Here Live Here Die Here, which released back in August. The emotional tribute to a son who lost his father is captured perfectly in the new video for “Build Me A Daddy.”

Additionally, multiple fans submitted their own father-son photos that were used as the basis of the video.

Bryan shared the news on his official Twitter account, where he posted a clip of the video. The singer additionally thanked fans for being a part of the video that is “super special” to him.

“This video is super special to me because it features people y’all love the most. Thanks for being a part of it. #BuildMeADaddy,” Bryan wrote on Twitter.

In September, the country musician spoke about the story behind the song. Bryan called it a “beautiful” and “unbelievably written” song that he just had to record.

“Sometimes you just have to record an unbelievably written, beautiful, emotional song and ‘Build Me A Daddy’ does that. It speaks about a child that’s lost their dad and this child, the way he explains how he wants to get his dad back for he and his mom is one of the coolest ways that I’ve ever heard a song written. I think country music has always been so important to really dive in and talk about tough subjects. There’s people out there that are gonna really really relate to this song and it’s gonna really affect them hopefully in a beautiful way,” Bryan explained further.

Bryan recently took to Twitter to share a short but heartfelt message to his fans. Like most musicians in 2020, the country singer had to cancel his Proud To Be Right Here Tour because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, Bryan obviously misses playing live shows for his fans. He shared a photo of himself in an arena with thousands of cheering fans.

“Seriously y’all, I miss you and this,” he tweeted.

As of now, his Proud To Be Right Here Tour is rescheduled for 2021. The tour will kick off on May 30. Bryan’s first stop of the tour is at Stambaugh Stadium in Youngstown, OH. Finally, the 25-show tour runs through October 9.
