Brett Young is turning heads with his personal new single, “Lady.” The country hitmaker co-wrote the song alongside Ross Copperman and Jon Nite in honor of his baby girl, Presley, and his wife, Taylor.

Throughout the song, Young shares a sweet message to Presley as he assures her that she can always count on him, no matter what. He also praises his wife and tells Presley that he hopes she always looks to her mother as an example of “how to be a lady.”

“I hope you look just like your momma/ And love her like I do/ You’ll see close to perfect patience/ If you watch your 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/ Just how to be a lady,” Young sings on the chorus.

In a recent interview, the California native shared the story behind the song and revealed that Lee Brice’s 2017 hit “Boy” actually inspired the idea to write “Lady.”

“I just remember talking to Jon about the song that he wrote that Lee Brice recorded called ‘Boy,’ and how he didn’t want to do exactly that, but for a girl. If we were gonna write it, let’s do something a little different,” Young recalled. “It was his idea that the song isn’t about my daughter, but rather it’s a message to my daughter about my wife, her mom. And once he landed on that and the message was telling my daughter if you want to really know how to be a lady watch mom, it made me really emotional and excited to write that song.”

Young recently debuted a touching new music video for the song and it stars (you guessed it!) Presley and Taylor.

Lady” follows Young’s sixth consecutive chart-topping single, ”Catch” and is the lead single off the singer/songwriter’s forthcoming album.
