Castro -- featuring American Idol season 7 alum Jason Castro and his siblings, season 8 contestant Michael and sister Jackie -- hit the road for a drive through Nashville in a new video for the song "Automatic."

In the clip, the siblings each hop on motorcycles and map out out the landscape of Tennessee, simply taking in nature, forests, rustic barns and scenery of the country.

Jackie takes lead vocals on the lush track, which is included on the group's EP, Diamond Dreams, released on Fervent Records in September. 

Speaking to Billboard, Jason says the song "feels like a magic moment, for sure."

The song sparkles with imagery with the lyrics: “I was lost at sea/ You were an island/ Like gravity/ You were pulling me ashore/ I was a refugee/ You were asylum/ You sheltered me/ And now I call you home.”

By the chorus, Jason and Jackie's vocals blend together, building to a sweet ending (and Jason embracing his children at the end).

"There were a couple lines where we all just kind of looked at each other and said, 'Wow, that's deep,'" Jason said. "It was one of those moments when you're writing and you know you're onto something really special."
