Nearly three months after being named the runner-up of Season 10 of "American Idol," Lauren Alaina premiered the music video for her first single, "Like My Mother Does," on Monday (Aug. 8). The video is full of pictures and home videos from Alaina's childhood, and the 16-year-old singer's mother makes a cameo at the end of the clip.

Alaina belts out the emotional song, while home videos play on the walls around the house and she lies in bed, flipping through old photo albums. The country girl sings about how her mother inspired her, while those scenes from her childhood play out on screen, bringing tears to her eyes.
The "Like My Mother Does" video premiered on CMT as part of a 15-minute special that included behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot. "Like My Mother Does" debuted at No. 20 on the Hot 100 and No. 11 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart.
CMT will air a similar special on Tuesday night to premiere the "I Love You This Big" music video from Scotty McCreery, who defeated Alaina on "Idol" in May.
