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 has more than 100,000 views since its release in November 2013. (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 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 voices. 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.
