Meghan Patrick recently unveiled the music video for her latest single, “My First Car” and it tells the personal story of her life and career.
The two-time CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year took the autobiographical route with the music video, which showcases scenes of Patrick at awards shows, her live shows, and various red carpet events. The clip then flashes back five years to show Patrick busking on the street for tips and ultimately getting a phone call that would change her life forever.
Based on a true story, the Sean Hagwell-directed clip portrays the actual events that led to the rising star getting a record deal at the moment her 22-year-old GMC truck broke down in a parking lot.
“I didn’t want this to be another video of people partying around a truck,” says Patrick. “The truck I wrote this song about meant so much more to me than that. The idea of showing the life of my truck autobiographically in relation to the journey of my career, felt like the perfect treatment.”
“That truck drove me to many gigs, drove me away from toxic relationships, and drove me right into the parking lot of Warner Music Canada the day I signed my record deal,” she adds. “And yes, it really died in that very same parking lot, as if to say ‘this is as far as I take you.’ Every bit of this video is a true representation of how I got to where I’m at now.”
