Tim McGraw’s New Video Lights Up A Tennessee Junkyard
Tim McGraw released a new music video yesterday (4/27) for his latest single, “Standing Room Only.” The video takes place in a junkyard where the cars appear to come to life.
Tim told CMT of the new video, “This video brings the song to life by really giving you a visual of shedding the past and bringing light, literally, to the old junk. I love the metaphor of standing in a junkyard and watching it light up.”
He added. “Then we had these sweet vignettes – of a mother and son, of a dad and daughter and others, that showed old junk items coming to life because of their memories. I thought that was a cool concept. That it’s not the ‘stuff’ but the memories of life we hold dear.”
McGraw said the day they shot the video was one of Tennessee’s first beautiful spring days. He said, “I never love watching myself over and over in a video. But I was really happy with the job they did on the video. I love the junkyard area and the way the lights shine out of the car. I thought the other actors did a great job. ‘Standing Room Only’ is a special one, and I think the life-affirming message holds true. Live a life filled with gratitude, and don’t take things for granted.”
McGraw recently announced that he just started a new music, movie, and TV production company called “Down Home.” Tim posted a video clip about his new company on Instagram, saying, in part, that it will help people get back to a sense of community through storytelling.
McGraw captioned the video clip in part, “It’s been hard to keep this one a secret for so long! Storytelling has always been one of my biggest passions, and I’m ready to take that same passion and apply it to something even bigger. I can’t reveal too much just yet, but I can promise you that this company is going to be something special. We’re going to be shaking things up, breaking new ground, and bringing people together in a whole new way. And after years of work behind the scenes, I am beyond thrilled to officially announce the launch of Down Home, a new media production company with @skydance, @shareability, and @emco615.”
