Country singer Morgan Wallen recently shared a music video for “Thought You Should Know,” featuring the person behind the song, his mother, Lesli Wallen.
The video opens with home footage of Wallen’s second birthday party, held on May 13, 1995. People are singing “Happy Birthday” as Wallen sits in his mom’s arms.
The next cut shows a present day Wallen sitting on a stool in a sound studio, strumming his guitar. The video continues to cut between the singer and footage from his childhood. Wallen’s father Tommy Wallen also makes an appearance.
Midway, Lesli is shown in a studio, watching her son sing the song he dedicated to her. Eventually she gets up, walks toward Wallen and the two embrace as the video fades to black.
Wallen co-wrote the song with Miranda Lambert and Nicolle Galyon. The song was a thank you letter to his mom for her selfless love and care.
“This one’s for you mama. I know it didn’t always seem like those prayers were getting through. I hope this song is a testament to the fact that they did,” Wallen wrote on social media.
