After releasing their latest single, “Everything Without You” last month, country’s hottest rising trio, Temecula Road—comprised of sisters Emma and Maddie Salute and Dawson Anderson—is giving One Country readers an exclusive look at their brand new video.
The video, directed by Kyle Cogan, features the real-life love story of Lisa and Adam Franco, a retired Marine, who was deployed while Lisa was 5 months pregnant. Missing the birth of his son, Adam relied on photos, videos and texts—which are used throughout the video—to see his newborn baby.
When the band heard of Adam and Lisa’s story through a mutual friend, they felt drawn to it and wanted to use the real-life couple in the video.
“‘Everything Without You’ touched us the first time we heard it, so we wanted the video to be very special too,” Temecula Road tells One Country. “After hearing Adam and Lisa’s inspiring love story, we felt it was the perfect fit to highlight the sacrifices our troops endure every day to protect our country, and the strength of their loved ones at home patiently awaiting their return.”
Written by Tom Douglas (“The House That Built Me”), Caitlyn Smith (“Like I’m Gonna Lose You”) and Nick Brophy (“Trip Around The Sun”), the new tune is a true love song, telling of a love so great, that instead of accomplishing some of life’s greatest achievements by yourself, you’d rather live a quiet life with the person you love by your side.
“If I could have dinner with Dylan and the Rolling Stones / if I could’ve invented the 45 record or the telephone / if I could live on top of New York City Park Ave / if I could paint the Mona Lisa’s smile to tell you the truth / I’d rather do nothing with you / I’d rather do nothing with you / oh, I’d rather do nothing with you than everything without you.”
Next up, the trio will be gearing up for Christmas with the release of their version of “Let It Snow! Let it Snow! Let it
Snow!” as well as performing in both Chicago’s Tree-lighting Ceremony at Millennium Park on Nov. 17 and Nasvhille’s Christmas Parade on Dec. 2.
