Both Chris Janson's funny and sensitive sides are portrayed in a video filmed backstage in the Opry Lounge at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. Before he begins to perform his poignant new single "Holdin' Her," which details his life after meeting his wife, he jokes around with the film crew.

Dressed in a leather jacket, Janson sits alone backstage with his acoustic guitar as he sings of the first time he met his wife in an underground pool hall. Janson's stripped down performance showcases the honesty within his lyrics.

"It’s the story of the things that I love most: my wife and my kids and my journey in life," he says in a press release. "If anyone wants a real look inside my life, here it is! It is a very personal and real look into our life with my wife, kids and bonus kids. This song is our love story."

The music video for "Holdin' Her" also shows Janson sitting alone on a stool while playing his acoustic guitar as images and video clips of his life play in the background. He and his wife are later shown dancing in the middle of the street at night around a bonfire as he plays guitar and on a bench where he proposed. It’s an intimate look at the life of Janson that plays out like a film.

"Holdin’ Her" is the third single off Janson’s debut album Buy Me a Boat.
