The Gardiner Sisters posted an acoustic video of their original song, “Running,” on YouTube in 2011. In the comments below the video, several fans asked for the song to be recorded in a studio or captured in a music video. Five years later, the sisters granted the requests.

In a new music video with a country feel, the sisters sing about running away from relationships. Meanwhile, clips of a shy couple falling in love are shown.

The actors that portrayed the couple in the music video, Colby Ross Smith and Monica Moore Smith, share the same last name, but they aren’t related. However, they did previously appear in a Mormon Message together in the past.

“We actually worked on a Mormon Message together, but funny thing in the last one he was bullying me, so I guess it worked out and it turned into this,” said Monica Moore Smith, who acted in the recently released “Saturday’s Warrior” film, in a behind-the-scenes video.

The three sisters featured in the video, Mandi Gardiner, Allie Gardiner and Hailey Gardiner, are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Currently, they are on tour with Us The Duo through Aug. 19.
