Walker Hayes' "Don't Let Her" is a thoughtful track about how his wife should be treated in the case of an untimely passing. Watch the personal music video here!

Walker Hayes started writing “Don’t Let Her” while he was overseas alone. The country singer was depressed thinking about how it should have been his daughter’s half birthday that day, but she died shortly after being born in June 2018. To change his mood, he started thinking about his beautiful wife, Laney.

“At the same time, I don’t know why, I was thinking about a game she and I have played our entire relationship,” Hayes told Taste of Country. “And that game is the whole, ‘What would you do if something happened to me?’ game.”

With the two crushing thoughts running through Hayes’ head, the Alabama native created a unique love song with the help of Shane McAnally and Andrew DeRoberts. The trio focused on Laney’s likes and quirks.

“The ‘Let her sleep as late as she wants’ line, like that is my wife. That’s her life. Like she has to sleep late every day,” Hayes added. “And when she pours her coffee, she pours honey in her cup first and I’m always like ‘For real? You’re still going? That’s a half a cup of honey!'”

After the artist finished the song, he asked his wife for her approval.

“I sent it to Laney, and she’s a tough crowd — the toughest of all,” Hayes said. “Especially anything love related, she is a tough person to get a response. She responded something like ‘This made me tear up.'”

“Don’t Let Her” Lyrics

She always said if something ever
Happened to me she would never
Fall in love again
What a waste

We always said we’d go together
But if I’m just half of her forever
This goes out to whoever
Takes my place

She don’t give 2 cents about money
Likes a little coffee in her honey
Let her sleep late as she wants
Home is her favorite restaurant
Don’t you dare come home if you’re hammered
Better watch your mouth and your grammar
She loves babies, hates glitter
You better shave before you kiss her
And if she ever misses me, please, don’t let her

She’s insecure about her legs, right
Something wrong with her hair, right
Just tell her she’s crazy (crazy)
Even though she won’t believe you, nah

Best advice I can give you, brother
Don’t ever say she’s acting just like her mother
Even though she does sometimes
It’s gonna be our little secret

She don’t give 2 cents about money
Likes a little coffee in her honey
Let her sleep late as she wants
Home is her favorite restaurant
Don’t you dare come home if you’re hammered
Better watch your mouth and your grammar
She loves babies, hates glitter
You better shave before you kiss her
And if she ever misses me, please, don’t let her

Make her feel better
Say something funny
Say something ’bout the weather
Tell her wherever I am, I’m good
And if she thinkin’ she can love again
She should understood

Orchids, that’s her favorite flower
Don’t ever watch “The Office” without her
After church, she gonna talk
Her favorite season is football

She don’t give 2 cents about money
Likes a little coffee in her honey
Let her sleep late as she wants
Home is her favorite restaurant
Don’t you dare come home if you’re hammered
Better watch your mouth and your grammar
She loves babies, hates glitter
You better shave before you kiss her
And if she ever misses me, please, don’t let her
