The Illusion Factory created award-winning animation in this groundbreaking music video, Drive (For Daddy Gene), that we created for Arista and Alan Jackson. We partnered with Director Steven Goldman and his high profile group at Collective Films and took this heartwarming song and colored it right into the pages of history with vibrant animation that feels like a Monet painting coming to life. This music video was nominated for Music Video of the Year in all of the large Award programs and it won Best Music Video in the Country Music Awards.
Drive (For Daddy Gene) was released in January 2002 as the second single from his album, Drive. It reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks in May 2002 and also peaked at number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
