Granger Smith is celebrating one year since filming one of his music videos — and he shared a gruesome throwback photo to remember it. Smith released the video for “Hate You Like I Love You” last year, bringing a story to life of a man who doesn’t “wanna care anymore” after losing the woman he loves:

“I’m just tryin’ to hate you like I love you/ Not want you like I need you/ Forget you like I miss you/ All of the time I’m just tryin’ to/ Let go like I hold tight/ Sell myself a bad lie/ Whatever I gotta do/ Girl I’m just tryin’ to hate you like I love you”

Smith took to Instagram on Friday (January 28) to share a few throwback pics from filming the music video, including one with his wife, Amber Smith, who stars in it. Photos show Smith with scars over his face after wrecking his truck in a fiery crash. Smith recalled the harrowing story he told through “Hate You Like I Love You”:

“One year ago I was driving my truck down a frigid highway and swerved to miss my dead wife sitting in the middle of the road. Or maybe it was a deer. Either way, I flipped my truck and then it caught fire. But then I needed to get back in the fiery truck, and then guess who? Yep, my dead wife showed up again just to mess with my head. It’s crazy after only one year how well I’m doing since that traumatic experience… And by traumatic, I mean the coldest music video shoot ever!”

It might sound like a dark story, but Amber seems to be on board with working with her husband again: “I seem to haunt you a lot. Maybe I’ll do that again soon,” she commented with a winking emoji. Watch the Smiths star in the fiery music video here:
