Alaina told GAC that the video, which features old pictures and video of the singer and her family, is about her mom.

"It's all projected on this beautiful Southern-style house," she said. "It's really great. It shows my life, so people will know more about me after they see it."

She believes that viewers will get to know her a bit more after seeing the clip, which was shot by Nashville video director Shaun Silva in Altadena, Calif.
