In the video clip, Gilbert says, “He was actually in the studio with Amber when I was cutting the song. I’m not really a crier but singing this song around him about him and being able to sing was almost impossible.”

He continued, “At the end of it there’s a pretty cool little sound bite. It was the first time he ever saw himself and noticed himself in the mirror and he made a funny noise and we were videoing it and I sent that to Dann Huff (producer) and Dann actually put it in the song. It was pretty cool man I gotta say. He’s the biggest chapter in me and my wife’s life.”
