All-vocal group Home Free takes a trip down memory lane in the new video for their latest song, “Love Me Like That.”
The emotional clip showcases a young couple vacationing near the beach. The couple appears to be very in love, however, toward the end of the clip, it seems as if something has driven them apart. They soon reunite near the shore, leaving viewers wondering if their relationship can be saved.
Home Free’s high tenor, Austin Brown, portrays the role of the male lead in the clip and is thrilled with the way it turned out.
“Seeing the video for the first time was honestly bittersweet because it was everything that I envisioned it would be – but I’d be lying if I said it was easy to see myself in such a vulnerable state,” Brown, who co-wrote the song with Jeffrey Joseph East and Stephen Martinez, told CMT. “Watching your heartbreak play out on screen can be a bit overwhelming, but I think this is one of the most well-executed visions we’ve had, and I couldn’t be prouder of the finished product. I hope fans love it as much as we do.”
The “Love Me Like That” music video was directed by Dustin Haney and produced by April Kimbrell. It was shot over the course of two days in Panama City Beach, FL, and Watertown, TN.
