Imitating real life, Steve Moakler released a video for “Suitcase” this week, the first single off his self-titled EP which was released earlier this year. The song showcases the simplicity of being in love and going on an adventure: life doesn’t need to be elaborate, it can just be. The video features Moakler and his wife holding hands, smiling, and they have an absolute element of the carefree lifestyle.
Although Moakler didn’t pen the song, he explained in an interview with The Shotgun Seat how he lived out the song with his wife Gracie, who stars in the video. “Three years ago my wife and I went out on this trip in a 1972 Winnebago camper and we just toured the country,” he laughs. “She quit the job that she hated and I was just playing music in backyards and we were kind of doing this gypsy adventure; it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of.” The Thomas Rhett / Luke Laird / Barry Dean co-write ended up being a soundtrack to their road trip around the country.
Not only is their road trip replicated in this video but so is the Winnebago, complete with the decor of a gypsy experience. The video will make you want to pack an overnight bag and travel to a magical spot where you can get back to the simple things in life.
