Hurry up and listen to Ashley Monroe’s The Blade. It’s sure to show up on plenty of best-of-2015 lists, and we think it’s one of the best country albums we’ve heard this year. On Tuesday (Nov. 17), Monroe shared a touching music video for “Bombshell,” a lush, sentimental ballad from the Justin Niebank and Vince Gill-produced record.

The clip features a gang of Monroe supporters writing their own personal bombshells (having an eating disorder, being homeless or having survived cancer) on vases and dropping them off a roof. “I just think it’s interesting in life how many different types of bombshells we have to drop,” Monroe told Vulture, who premiered the video. “When my dad had cancer, my uncle came into a room to tell me he died. That’s a bombshell. And the older you get, the more you have to start doing them yourself, which is hard.”
