See 16 Country Artists Whose Spouses Appeared In Their Music Videos
Songs about love have been a part of country music’s history since the beginning. When people name their favorite country tunes, they often name a love song.
Because country songwriters and singers strive to capture real emotions in their songs, many of these love songs are about a special someone in their lives.
Oftentimes, they enlist that special someone to star in the song’s music video, giving it a sweet, personal touch.
This list contains 16 music videos that make a country artist’s spouse the star of the show.
A few things before we continue. This list does not include music videos primarily containing wedding footage. Also, it does not include any videos filmed to accompany a married couple’s duet.
Even with those restrictions, there are many country music videos starring singers’ real-life loves. Start scrolling through the list below, and get ready for your heart to melt.
“Blessed” by Martina McBride
In her 2001 chart-topper “Blessed,” Martina McBride sings of how thankful she is for all of the good things God has given her in life. Although Martina didn’t write the song, she was easily able to connect with it, which is why her delivery came across so sincere.
When it came time to film the song’s music video, Martina gave it an extra personal touch. Her two eldest daughters and her husband, John, make a few brief appearances. The moments they captured and placed in the video are heartwarming to witness.
“Feelin’ It” by Scotty McCreery
Scotty McCreery and his wife, Gabi, were together for many years before they finally tied the knot in 2018. The two knew each other growing up, and maintained a friendship that eventually blossomed into romance.
Before they were married, Gabi appeared in not one, but two of her future husband’s music videos. The first video she starred in was “The Trouble With Girls.” She was later seen in Scotty’s video for “Feelin’ It,” which features plenty of romantic moments between the couple as they enjoy some fun in the sun.
Since then, Gabi appeared in Scotty’s music video for “It Matters to Her,” which they filmed before welcoming their son, Avery.
“Crash My Party” by Luke Bryan
Luke Bryan‘s beautiful wife Caroline is no stranger to sharing the spotlight with him. She often takes to her own Instagram to share silly videos and poke fun at her husband, and his fans seem to enjoy them.
But as much as they love to goof around, they each have a sweet side. We got to see this in Luke’s video for “Crash My Party,” which mostly focuses on a couple played by actors but ends with Luke coming home to Caroline.
The two dance together under a bunch of twinkling lights before sharing a kiss. Can you say “aw?”
“Remember When” by Alan Jackson
If you claim that you haven’t cried at least once while watching Alan Jackson‘s video for “Remember When,” then you’re lying.
The song, which was written by Alan, has him reflecting on his life and relationship with his wife, Denise. He also looks forward to the future, as he imagines the days when he and Denise will sit and remember all the happy memories from their past.
Since she inspired the song, Denise appears in its music video, sweetly dancing along with Alan as images from their lives flash around them. It’s one of the most romantic things you’ll ever see.
“Black” by Dierks Bentley
Named after his wife Cassidy’s maiden name, it only makes sense that “Black” is Dierks Bentley‘s way of celebrating his wife and her beauty. The sultry song was a huge hit on country radio, and also experienced crossover success.
Cassidy starred front and center in the music video that accompanied her namesake song. She appeared in almost every scene, sometimes walking through gorgeous landscapes in a flowing gown and other times enjoying intimate moments with her husband.
This is one video that will make you weak in the knees!
“Little Moments” by Brad Paisley
Brad Paisley‘s wife Kimberly Williams-Paisley has appeared in several of his music videos. In fact, the first one she starred in was “I’m Gonna Miss Her,” which was when she and Brad were dating. Years later, she also had a starring role in his music video for “Last Time for Everything.”
But it’s her appearance in his video for “Little Moments” that stands out as the most memorable. The two were newly married at the time, and were as cute as could be!
“Die a Happy Man” by Thomas Rhett
Thomas Rhett makes it well-known that his many love songs are inspired by his wife, Lauren, even calling her out by name in his number one hit, “Life Changes.”
But long before that, she appeared in his music video for “Die a Happy Man,” one of the most successful love songs to emerge from any genre of music in recent years. The video shows the two of them enjoying time together in an island paradise.
“Mama’s Song” by Carrie Underwood
This personal touch and Carrie’s recent marriage made the song all the more meaningful. Mike only appears briefly in the video, but his appearance is sweet and comforting, driving home the message that Carrie was trying to send to her mom.
“Home Sweet” by Russell Dickerson
Russell Dickerson‘s video for “Home Sweet” opens with a special clip. It’s the video of him proposing to his now-wife, Kailey.
As the video continues, Kailey appears in images and clips that flash on a screen behind Russell while he sings. We even get the chance to see their first son, Remington, when he was a baby.
Kailey later made an appearance in Russell’s video for “She Likes It” with Drake Scott.
“Lovin’ On You” by Luke Combs
The music video for Luke Combs‘ “Lovin’ On You” features two actors meant to be portraying younger versions of Luke and his wife, Nicole. The young Luke helps Nicole get enough tickets at a skating rink so she can get a pair of white skates with pink wheels.
At the end, grown-up Luke approaches grown-up Nicole at the ticket counter. She’s still wearing the same skates he helped her win as a kid. Too cute!
Luke and Nicole’s wedding footage was later used for Luke’s music video for “Forever After All.”
“Dance With You” by Brett Young
This wasn’t Brett Young‘s first time featuring his wife, Taylor, in one of his music videos. But it’s definitely one of the sweetest times!
Brett’s video for “Dance With Me” features Taylor and their two adorable daughters, Presley and Rowan. Clips from the couple’s wedding play behind them throughout the video.
“Got What I Got” by Jason Aldean
Jason Aldean‘s wife, Brittany, appears in his music video for his 2020 single “Got What I Got.” The video contains clips of them spending time on the beach, driving around, and just living their daily lives together.
The video also stars the couple’s two kids together, Memphis and Navy.
“Código” by George Strait
George Strait and his wife, Norma, have been married for over 50 years. But she never appeared in one of his music videos until 2019.
That’s when George released his video for “Código.” Norma makes a brief appearance in the video to dance with her husband. We love it!
“Pick Me Up” by Gabby Barrett
Gabby Barrett’s husband, Cade Foehner, appears in her music video for “Pick Me Up.” The two of them play a couple through various stages of life, including old age.
Since then, Gabby featured Cade and their two children in her music video for “Glory Days.”
“Settling Down” by Miranda Lambert
Miranda Lambert never had a love interest in one of her music videos. That is, until she released the video for “Settling Down.”
The video stars Miranda’s husband, Brendan McLoughlin. We see the two of them cooking together, snuggling in a hammock, and going through strolls in the country.
Brendan later appeared in the video for the Telemitry remix of Miranda’s “Tequila Does.”
“Your Man” by Josh Turner
This song has probably made more country girls swoon than any other track in the history of country music. That’s why it was no surprise when “Your Man” topped the Hot Country Songs chart and became a crossover hit.
A song that steamy needed an equally romantic music video to match, and Josh Turner delivered. Who was the lucky lady who got to play his love interest, you ask? Well, it was none other than his lovely wife Jennifer, who he married just two years prior to the song’s release.
Josh and Jennifer recreated the “Your Man” music video to celebrate its 15-year anniversary in 2021. Watch the new version of the video below!
