It’s All About Family In Brantley Gilbert’s New “Man That Hung The Moon” Video

When Brantley Gilbert does this style of country, it works. In my opinion, it’s his bread and butter.

He just released the music video for the father-son ballad, “Man That Hung The Moon,” and it’s all about family in this one.

“There was a time in my life where I’m not necessarily proud of the man I was,” Gilbert said. “I want our children to have a song where they can hear my voice say ‘I love you’ and acknowledges that there’s going to come a time when they figure out I’m not a ‘super hero.’ I’m human; I’ve made mistakes. And I’ll make a lot more, but there’s a man who really did hang the moon, who’s got your back and always will, and if I’ve done my job as a father, they’ll know that truth.”

“We had actually just found out that we were pregnant with our second, a baby girl due this September, the day I wrote this song. I sat down to write them a letter, but I’m a songwriter first so I ended up with this song.”

You’re gonna think I hung the moon / That I made the sky / That the sun rises / And sets inside my eyes; And it won’t be long / ‘Til I hear daddy’s home / And footsteps runnin’ to the man that hung the moon”

One day you’ll realize I’ve lost my cape, I can’t fly / And I’m only human / And you’ll need more than me / But you’ll know to hit your knee
