Brett Eldredge pours his heart into everything he does, but even he admits he poured a little more of that tender heart than usual in his new single, “The Long Way.”

“The song is about making a new relationship, and that connection you feel when you find magic together,” Brett said in a recent interview with Rare Country. “It struck a chord with me. There is just something about that vulnerability, and I have just never heard that vulnerability in a love song until now. I have never gone there in terms of that kind of depth before.”

But he has now, and the song is already becoming a fan favorite from his self-titled his new album. And it looks as if he’s going to make some new fans with not only the song, but also with casting choice to serve as his love interest in the video for the song. It’s budding actress and “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson, who also recently had a role in a Hallmark channel TV movie.

“Shooting the video for ‘The Long Way’ with @legitsadierob … this video is gonna be MAGIC,” Brett wrote in a September 20 Instagram post featuring a photo of him and the gorgeous Sadie, who also works as an  inspirational speaker.

And while this seems to just be a fictional love story at this point, we do have to say that these two look awfully cute together.
