Winner of "American Idol" the farewell season, Trent Harmon, performs at the season finale at the Dolby Theatre on Thursday, April 7, 2016, in Los Angeles. 

American Idol Season 15 winner Trent Harmon premiered the new music video for his single, "There's a Girl," this morning (July 11) with a live question and answer session on the Rolling Stone Country Facebook page.

Directed by Roman White, the video chronicles Harmon as he embarks on a quest to find his elusive girl. In the clip, the charming 25-year old singer faces many obstacles as he tries to get to his lady love. He rides a tractor, travels in a vintage red automobile (that sadly overheats), borrows a bicycle from an adorable girl selling lemonade, thumbs a ride from some sweet grandmothers, and rides a motorcycle in his journey.
 
The song -- co-written with Laura Veltz (Eli Young Band, Maren Morris) and Jimmy Robbins (Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton) -- is based on on a true story, he said.
 
"'I came in with this almost sad story about how I actually drove hundreds of miles only to find out I'd lost my chance with her," he said. "We crafted a positive outcome because it's truly crazy what a man will do when he's in love." While his real story doesn't end in victory, the video has a happier ending.

Harmon is currently on a radio tour showcasing his work for his upcoming Big Machine Records full length debut. Watch the video below here.
