There are lots of songs about life on the road. But when it's the Rolling Stones or Bob Seger singing about the hardships of the tour, it falls a little flat. Those songs are more like humblebrags than honest laments. But the video for Chris Milam's "Kids These Days", shot by Andrew Trent Fleming, and co-directed by Milam and MVM frequent flyer Ben Siler, rings true to the struggles of the small timer trying to break in to the business. But it's not all grim grind—there are little moments of magic that keep Milam going. It's those evocative mood swings that make this video work so well.
