Ain't No Man

Behind the Scenes

As Jimmie was just introduced to the crowd at Bristol Motor Speedway, he walked out to the Avett Brothers new song “Ain’t No Man.” As is now a popular tradition, the drivers choose their intro songs at the “World’s Fastest Half Mile.” Why did Jimmie choose this particular tune?

Keep your eyes open in the music video, released in May, and you may see someone you recognize…

The pilot looked a little like Jimmie Johnson, didn’t he?

Well, that’s because it was indeed the six-time NASCAR champ behind the yoke.

While JJ didn’t get to fly, he enjoyed his cameo role in the video: "I’ve been friends with the guys for a few years now and thought it was really cool of them to ask me. I don’t think I’ve actually ‘acted’ in a music video before, so growing up in the MTV and VH1 era its definitely something I’ve had on my bucket list. Hopefully all of the time I spend behind the wheel of my race car translates into me being a believable pilot. It was such a neat experience and I had a blast just hanging out with Scott and Seth and the band that afternoon; it was just a lot of fun.  Hopefully all of our fans get a kick out of it and enjoy it as much as I did."
