At the end of the clip, after the camera pans across a desk covered with pictures, Atkins' son Elijah, who is 17, and 14-month-old Ryder -- Atkins and Falcon's first child together -- appear in a photograph, holding an ultrasound image with the caption "Love at first sight."
Both Atkins and Falcon shared a link to the video on their respective Instagram pages. They called it a valentine from their family to fans, and promised a surprise at the end. Atkins also used the post to announce the release date for his new album.
"I’ve spent the last 5 years pretty much doing 2 things: being in love and making this album," Atkins shares on his feed, "and I can’t wait for you to hear it on May 10th, 2019."
The "My Life" music video opens with the story of Falcon's grandparents, who were married for 71 years, and who provide both the inspiration for Atkins' relationship with his wife and the song's touching lyrics. "I love my eyes 'cause you look into 'em / I love my name 'cause you say it, baby," he sings. "I love my heart 'cause you stole it / My kiss 'cause you want it / My mind 'cause you own it every minute / I love my life 'cause you're in it."
"My Life" is the second single that Atkins has released from his upcoming, Caught Up in the Country. The song follows the title track.
