Lee Ann Womack recently released the music video to her latest single “Hollywood” on Friday (4.19). “Hollywood” is the second single off her latest album The Lonely, The Lonesome, and The Gone which was nominated for two 2019 Grammy awards for the Best Americana Album and the Best Americana Roots Song for Womack’s single “All the Trouble.”
The video tells the story of the heartache in Tinseltown and expresses the anguish felt when love fades and a couple gets stuck in a rut, repeating the same old habits. Director, Chris Ullens, took footage of California’s well-known and standout landmarks as a backdrop for the custom-made dolls, representing the couple Womack is singing about.
As hours turn to days and days into years, the couple continues their journey, seemingly living separately, together. “Like a silver screen / It’s a technicolor dream / We pretend it’s real / But it’s only make-believe” as the relationship disintegrates they feel like actors playing out a part instead of two people in love. “Either I’m a fool for asking / Or you belong in Hollywood”.
Although the video features no humans, these beautiful, life-like dolls play out this part perfectly, furthering enhancing the meaning of the song, and the heartbreaking tale. The visuals take you through a relatable circumstance for viewers who find themselves living in that uncertainty dealing with the monotonous realities of life.
“Hollywood” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music. Take a listen below and check out more new recently released music here on our ‘New Country Music’ playlist. Be sure to give the playlist a follow for your weekly new country music fix.
