While the song is about a man who puts his truck up for sale because it reminds him too much of a past love, the video tells a little bit of a different story, with a father selling his truck to his daughter who then makes her own memories in the truck with her boyfriend.
“7500 OBO” was written by Nathan Spicer, Matt McGinn, and Jennifer Schott, and also contains a subtle throwback to another one of Tim’s own songs as it mentions driving down the road “singin’ along to Where the Green Grass Grows.”
Telling the story of how his 19-year old daughter ended up starring in the video, Tim said:
“When the treatment came in, they really wanted my youngest daughter Audrey, who’s 19, cause they had seen some photos of Audrey, who does some modeling and stuff.
First of all I asked the boss, my wife, and then I asked Audrey after Faith approved.
So that was one of the coolest things I’ve done, is work with her in the video, just watch her perform and watch her act. My girls are the light of my life. They’re the sweetest things in the world, and I’m just so proud of her.”
Here's the story of how our youngest daughter Audrey got cast in the video for #7500OBO. So proud of all our girls. Was real special to work together on this one. pic.twitter.com/zT89xT4X7f
