Jeremy Mayfield's Bittersweet Music Video
Jeremy Mayfield's ride in NASCAR has been a combination of highs and lows. This season, his career is once again involved in what can only be called a bittersweet combination of perseverance and desperation.
The rock group Saving Abel has just released a new music video with Mayfield as the centerpiece. TDP told you about this concept, now the finished video is done and can be viewed on You Tube by clicking here.
The video for the song "Drowning Face Down" depicts Mayfield as a struggling local racer trying to make the big time. It includes footage from Bristol Motor Speedway and Mayfield's own shop. Also included are cameo appearances from Brian Vickers, Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr.
“It was awesome,” said Mayfield. “Just being a part of that was just cool for me. Those guys are great and I’m glad to see them coming up. I didn’t really know them that well until we did the video and they have a lot of fun. It’s funny how our story kind of fit their song and worked perfect for their video.”
Saving Abel frontman Jared Weeks said the band is all big NASCAR fans and they were excited to work with Mayfield and the other drivers. This is the third video from the band's self-titled album that recently went gold.
It should be interesting to see what music television networks choose to play this video. The song is good, the band is popular and the video is easy to watch. Mayfield may just find that this investment of his time might pay off in an exposure of his NASCAR efforts and his dedication to a brand new audience.
