Allison Moorer Shares Music Video for ‘Like It Used to Be’
Allison Moorer has released the music video for her newest song, 'Like It Used to Be.'
The track is the first from her upcoming eighth studio album, 'Down to Believing,' which is set for release on March 17 via eOne Nashville. The album was written and recorded over a two-year period that saw Moorer struggle with the end of her marriage to musician Steve Earle and her son's autism diagnosis.
At the time she began the recording process in January 2012, she was focused on writing songs to submit to her music publisher.
"I didn't even know there was going to be another record," Moorer tells Rolling Stone Country. "I was just trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life, trying to figure out how to be a mama and balance that with being an artist. I just didn't know if I was ever going to be able to devote the time that being a singer-songwriter needs. I wasn't sure that I could do the job anymore."
'Down to Believing' features a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's 'Have You Ever Seen the Rain,' as well as 12 original songs, including the track ‘Mama Let the Wolf In’ about her son's autism diagnosis.
“Being able to reflect on your own experience and put it in a common language so that people can commune is what the job of a songwriter is,” Moorer says. “I’m prouder of these songs than any I’ve ever written."
