Lauren Alaina’s “Like My Mother Does” Video Is Picture Perfect

The music video for “Like My Mother Does,” the single by American Idol Season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina, is one part glam showcase for the rising country-pop star, one part heart-tugging sapfest with its old home video footage of the singer when she was a toddler and her mother. And, really — would we want anything else from the 16-year-old Georgia peach? Watch “Like My Mother Does” below. “The video is all about my mom and it has footage from my childhood and pictures of me and my family while I was growing up,” Lauren told Great American Country, who premiered the “Like My Mother Does” vid. “It’s all projected on this beautiful Southern-style house. It’s really great. It shows my life, so people will know more about me after they see it.”

And you really do get a sense of the mother-daughter bond between these two (not that it wasn’t already apparent each time mom turned on the waterworks in the audience while watching Lauren perform on the AI stage this past season).

Here’s the Shaun Silva-directed “Like My Mother Does” video, which was shot in Altadena, California.

“Like My Mother Does” was originally recorded three years ago by Kristy Lee Cook. Alaina’s version peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100 after the American Idol finale in May.

Both Lauren and her fellow Idol alum/maybe-boyfriend Scotty McCreery are currently trekking across the States on the American Idols Live! Tour, which has them rolling into Columbus, Ohio tonight.
