Lauren Jaimes released her debut music video and accompanying single “Home Is Where You Are” on Friday, April 3, 2020. The single radiates nostalgia and evokes a dreamy vintage sound that is reflective of some of Lauren’s favorite influences including Kacey Musgraves, Johnny Cash, and John Denver, while hints of Country, Folk, and Americana blend together seamlessly to create a unique and upbeat western vibe.
Filmed in Brooklyn, NY and directed by Forrest Weber, the music video is an exciting one-shot performance that complements the song’s playful melody and will make you want to start shufflin’ your boots. “Home Is Where You Are” was recently added to Vevo’s “True Country” playlist alongside artists like Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, and Ashley McBryde. It has been heralded by Pro Country Music as “infectious on many levels” and walking “the sonic line of folk and singer/songwriter, all the while remaining refreshingly current”. Rhythm and Boots NYC wrote that the single was “hopeful” and “exactly the positivity dose you’re looking for”, while Jolene: The Country Music Blog stated that, “Lyrically, Musgraves’s sass and Denver’s sentimentality are there”.
