In honor of his daughter’s first birthday on Oct. 21, Brett Young shared a new performance video of “Lady” from his recent live-stream concert at the Ryman Auditorium. Brett co-penned the single with Ross Copperman and Jon Nite shortly before the birth of his daughter, Presley, in October 2019. The song pays tribute to Presley and Brett’s wife, Taylor.
“‘Lady’ is easily one of the most special songs I’ve ever written,” says Brett. “I always knew I would want to write songs for my children, but didn’t realize the inspiration would come so quickly before my daughter was even born. It’s a message to Presley about her mom and it became a pretty obvious choice for my first single in a new chapter of music. It’s so meaningful to Taylor and I, and I hope it resonates in a similar way for anyone who listens.”
The sweet song features Brett crooning the chorus: “I hope you look just like your mama / And love her like I do / You’ll see close to perfect patience / If you watch her every move / You can always run to daddy / You’ll always be my baby / But look at her, baby girl / And you’ll learn how to be a lady.”
“Lady,” which is currently No. 32 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, is the lead single from Brett’s upcoming third studio album.
