Johnny Manziel is everywhere.
Manziel’s been making the rounds this offseason, sending shockwaves through college football like no other offseason in recent memory. He was just in San Diego working with QB guru George Whitfield, throwing blindfolded, and dropping bombs in batting practice with the Padres. He’s been courtside at NBA games and living it up on New Years. And with fame comes media to dissect your every move.
But now, Johnny’s gone country.
Manziel, along with former teammate Ryan Swope, will take his act to the country music world, as he will appear in a music video for Texas A&M alumnus Granger Smith’s song “Silverado Bench Seat”, which will make its debut on College Football Live today, via USA Today.
“It goes right alongside what he’s been doing,” said Smith. “He’s entered the pop culture like no A&M quarterback ever has – rarely has any college quarterback entered the pop culture. I think at first it made everyone nervous: ‘How’s this gonna pan out? Is he gonna end up in trouble somewhere?’ But I think we’ve all embraced his personality. This is just him, how he embraces life to the fullest.”
Manziel’s appearance is said to be beside a lovely young coed in an old pickup truck. What’s more Texas than that? Texas forever.
We know the kid can play some ball. Now, let’s see if he’s got any acting ability.
