Cinderella's Tom Keifer, 'The Flower Song': Exclusive Video Premiere
Video comes from the singer's debut solo album, "The Way Life Goes"
Cinderella frontman Tom Keifer just released his first ever solo album and Billboard has an exclusive premiere of the music video for "The Flower Song."
Keifer says the song was inspired by his wife Savannah, who also wrote and co-produced "The Way Life Goes," out now on Merovee Records.
"Women are God's greatest gift to our world, truly beautiful inside and out," he says. "'The Flower Song' is about recognizing your one true love in a world filled with so many amazing women. It can be dizzying. But then, you see the one. A miracle! I thank God every day for my miracle, inspiration and one true love, Savannah."
The video was shot in Printer's Alley in Downtown Nashville, featuring Keifer's friends and family. It even features his own son, Jaidan, playing Keifer as a child. "He had never acted before but fell right into it, no problem," says the singer.
Inspiration for a solo record struck Keifer in the 90s, when Cinderella parted ways with Universal Records. He started cutting tracks for it in 2003, seeing it as an outlet for songs he'd been working on that hadn't found a home. Along the way, he'd have to deal with a partially paralyzed left vocal cord, which could have prevented him from ever singing again. Nevertheless, the record is finally here, featuring 14 songs chronicling Keifer's life.
"The Flower Song" was released as the album's first single, while "Solid Ground" is being worked to rock formats. A video for the bluesy track was released in March:
And because it's a bonafide classic from the glam metal era, here's the video for Cinderella's "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)," which reached No. 12 on the Hot 100 in 1988, making it the band's biggest hit:
