Johnny Manziel: Country Music Video Star

Johnny Manziel's resume is pretty long for a person who hasn't reached the age of 21 yet, but you can add one more item to his list: star of a music video.

As reported by USA Today Friday morning, the Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner stars in fellow Aggie Granger Smith's latest music video for his "Silverado Bench Seat" song.

One of Manziel's favorite targets, now-former Aggie wide receiver Ryan Swope, is also in the video.

The debut came at 2:30 p.m. CT Friday on ESPNU's "College Football Live" show.

Smith is a 2002 graduate of Texas A&M who was raised in Dallas and has placed numerous songs on the top ten of the Texas country music charts. His song, "We Bleed Maroon," is a favorite among many Aggies.

Manziel was not paid for his role in the video, according to Smith. That would have violated NCAA rules.
