Touching Video Features Real Life Families from Across the Country
MCA recording artist Josh Turner released the video for his new single "Find Me A Baby" at both CMT and Great American Country (GAC). The touching video features real life families and was directed by Peter Zavidil. An announcement was posted on Josh’s socials and Craigslist looking for families to be a part of the video for “Find Me A Baby,” the second single from Turner’s new album Punching Bag. Fans were asked to share their families’ special story with their submission and the responses were overwhelming from families across the country.
Each family has their own unique story whether they have lost loved ones, have family serving in the military, have or were foster children, have children with special needs, have adopted internationally and domestically, have children living with the challenges of cystic fibrosis, are being raised by grandparents or are high school sweethearts. The families where filmed in their cities and are featured in picture frames throughout the video.
"The idea in the song is about family so the concept for the video was to make it about real families,” explains Zavidil. "I couldn’t bring Josh to the families and I couldn’t bring all of the families to Josh, therefore the cool way was to put them together in frames. Everyone has a family portrait in a frame in their home. This video is touching and aspiring."
"My wife and boys sang on this song,” explains Turner. "It’s cool knowing their voices are in a special video like this that promotes marriage, family, and children. I have to give Peter all the credit for making this such a special and meaningful video.”
