When asked to jump on board to art direct Black River Entertainment's video for recording artist, Sarah Darling, we were excited to learn that the song was written by our friend Caitlin Smith. The lyrics of “Home to Me” take us across the map of the states, declaring that anywhere our love is we can feel at home. Director Becky Fluke's treatment called for vintage postcards from all over the US. Sarah and her beau for the day were to drive through the country with evidence of their paper correspondence in tow, to end at a lakeside picnic beneath a rustic yet romantic little lean-to. Fortunately, from our tour excursions through the Southeast we were privy to a quaint spot in Birmingham, AL that had just the postcard collection we were hoping for. Our next task was to create the perfect lean-to tent (click here for the “how-to”)
. We gathered bamboo poles, rope, pillows, quilts and all the necessary tent building supplies and staked our spot on a small pond near Gallatin, TN. We spent a good portion of the day fighting the wind’s attempts to sabotage our blanket fort but we persevered. In the end, the elements were no match for this dynamic duo from Milkglass.
The video has been well received by CMT and youtube country music fans as the video has had nearly a half million views.
