A music video was filmed for the title track and a final tour was also announced.[2] A film crew followed The Judds on their final tour and recorded some of their live concert footage. The results of their footage were inputted into the release of this video album. This included some of the duo's hits from their last album, such as "Born to Be Blue". The video album also contained interviews and scenes from Naomi Judd's wedding to husband Larry Strickland. The video itself was produced by Martin Fischer and was directed by Bud Schaetzle.[3]
