Chord Overstreet apparently never heard the saying "You can't go home again," because in his new video for "Homeland" -- premiering exclusively on Billboard -- that's exactly what he does. 

In the new clip, the former Glee star takes us on a gorgeous tour of his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, warmly revisiting his old stomping grounds and reconnecting with friends and family. 

The video was also shot around Overstreet's childhood home in Kingston Springs, about a half-hour outside Nashville, and features a few of his childhood friends and his sister Harmony. Overstreet's father, Paul Overstreet, is a two-time Grammy-winning songwriter and the recipient of five BMI Songwriter of the Year awards. 

"Being able to film my first music video at the home that I grew up in was very special," Overstreet tells Billboard.

Overstreet left Nashville in 2007 when he graduated high school to pursue a career in singing and acting. After Glee ended in 2015, Overstreet became the first artist to sign with Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas and Phil McIntyre's Safehouse Records, a joint venture with Island Records. "Homeland" is the first single from a forthcoming EP.
