The lyrics talk of the beauty all around New Mexico, so it is only logical that this time around singers from all around the state take turns belting out "Feels Like Home." With the help of the New Mexico Tourism Department, a total of 43 communities and organizations have combined for a unique, humorous, and occasionally-in-tune version of the catchy melody. The original version of "Feels Like Home" is already a music video hit. It drew more than 25,000 views in the first ten days following its official release in November. (you can see the original here: http://youtu.be/JUhXostcdC4 ) This unusual version is not a lip-sync video. These are the actual voices of several hundred New Mexicans singing about the all the things that make the state "feel like home" to them. Tourism Department representatives traveled all around New Mexico throughout a summer capturing each community's designated brief segment of the song. The song "Feels Like Home" has served as the catchy background tune for numerous TV and radio ads all across the state. The New Mexico Tourism Department first used the song in its own ads, and several communities have since followed suit. It is the creation of the band Richmond, the musical partnership of Albuquerque natives Nate Boitano and Heath Warren. Nate and Heath first gained a measure of fame as members of the popular Albuquerque band Asper Kourt. They have been friends and musical collaborators since growing up next to each other.
