Miranda Lambert Shares 'Settling Down' Video Starring Husband

Miranda Lambert released a music video for "Settling Down," featuring her husband Brendan McLoughlin, on Wednesday (October 21).

The Trey Fanjoy-directed visual, shot near Lambert's home in Nashville, begins with the singer riding a horse and the couple enjoying time together amid stunning landscapes.

Brendan is seen fishing while Lambert is drinking wine and writing songs. They cuddle up in a hilltop hammock and then dance in an open field.

Their dog Delta makes an appearance as well when they are in the kitchen, preparing dinner.

"I'm a wild child and a homing pigeon / Caravan and an empty kitchen," Lambert sings. "Bare feet on the tile with my head up in the clouds / I'm one heart goin' both directions / One love and a couple of questions / Am I settling up / Or settling down? / Am I settling up / Or settling down?"

"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," says Lambert. "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."
