Bob Seger has been representing the Mitten State -- and, more accurately, the (oft-maligned by non-natives) city of Detroit -- for many successful decades now, influencing such younger Motor City clan as Kid Rock and others.
Few, then, are as qualified to put out a video celebrating Detroit and its main industry -- cars, of course -- as Seger does in his new video for "Detroit Made." The 69-year-old superstar still lives in the Detroit suburbs with his family, and doubtless had a personal hand in the ideation and creation of the video for his new song. Much of the footage was shot at the annual Woodward Dream Cruise, a classic car parade that passes through Motor City on the third Saturday of every August.
Seger's tune, which was written by John Hiatt, is the lead single for his forthcoming album, RIde Out. He has not released a new album since 2006's Face The Promise. It will hit stores October 14.
