Country artist and Zac Brown Band member Caroline Jones released the official video for her hit track, “Lawless” off her recently released third studio album Homesite. The video was shot while Caroline was on a bus ride between Ventura, California, where she was opening for Lukas Nelson, and a Zac Brown Band show in Las Vegas. In true rock star and Caroline fashion, she turned to Google Maps to find a state park that captured the song’s opening lyric “caught between forever and a wasteland,” pulled the tour bus over, hopped off in a sparkly silver number and shot the video in a couple of hours.
