Morgan Wallen He released a brand new music video just in time for Thanksgiving.
As a tribute to his mom Lesli, Thought You Should Know was released on Mother’s Day this year and is owned by Morgan current single on country radio.
The song itself, co-written with Miranda Lambert and Nicolle Galyon, features fairly simple production and some fantastic lyrics in the form of a letter or note to his mother after Morgan realized how long it’s been since he was too home was.
He admits he’s made some bad decisions and pursued things he shouldn’t be doing, wanting to reassure her that “all those prayers… finally found their way”:
“I thought you should know
That all those prayers you thought you wasted on me
Must have finally made it through
i thought you should know
I got myself a new girl down in Jefferson City, and
She lets me fish whenever I want
Yes, I’m still proud of where I’m from
Still your only damn son
Can you believe I’m on the radio?
I just thought you should know”
And the music video, released this morning, includes some adorable home videos of Morgan with his mom when he was a little boy and shows some sweet moments from his childhood growing up in East Tennessee.
He shared a clip of the video in a post on Instagram, wishing fans a happy Thanksgiving and thanking them for making this year so special for him.
He added that he was very thankful to “my family, my mom and our good God”:
“Hope you all have a happy Thanksgiving. Wanted to remind you all how grateful I am for you, for my family, my mom and our dear God. You really made this year a special year for me…
Here is the Thought You Should Know video.”
It’s a perfect video for the song which is easily one of my favorite songs he’s ever released.
You also see Morgan’s mom watching as he performs the song on set for the video and it’s obvious how much they mean to each other and I think it’s really sweet that he included her in the video in this way.
No one will ever love you like your mama, as the saying goes, and I think this perfectly captures the deep love and admiration Morgan has for her. And I mean, what more could a mother really ask for?
