Granger Smith has some pretty special co-stars in his brand-new music video.
Both his wife Amber and his youngest son, River, who turned one in May, appear in the clip for “Happens Like That.” The visual version of the song mirrors its theme, following a couple from their initial meeting through marriage and having kids. It happens to be a case of art imitating life, since Granger and Amber actually met on a music video set.
“This has been the most extensive music video I’ve done, and we’ve done a lot of them,” Granger says. “We shot the video in a massive cornfield and a silo and it gives the video this mysterious tone. [Director] TK[McKamy] had a vision that the imagery would be kind of like a memory and these lightning strikes make time pass through these stages of life.”
With River’s guest spot, all three of Granger’s kids have now made cameos in his videos.
“Happens Like That” is the lead single from Granger’s new album, which is expected this fall.
