– Laura Bell Bundy released a video today for "I Am What I Am," the first single from her upcoming "Another Piece of Me" (Big Machine), coming out June 9.
Director Becky Fluke shot the video in Switzerland. From biking on an abandoned road to singing on mountaintops, Bundy enlisted others to do the same.
"There is not another place in nature I feel more connected to my higher source than in the mountains so when I found out I'd be performing at the Gstaad Country Music Festival - in the midst of the Alps and the same setting as my favorite film The Sound of Music - I was stoked," said Bundy. "Filming in the same place Maria Von Trapp sang seemed like the perfect place to tell that story, a story about being okay with being yourself and feeling free."
"I want to send the message that being who you are is not only a beautiful courageous thing, it's a necessary thing."
Bell is better known as an actress, having been in "Hart of Dixie" and "Anger Management" on TV and "Legally Blonde" and "Wicked" on Broadway.
