Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.'s latest music video premiere is hitting close to home.

"We Almost Lost Detroit," pays homage to the city by flashing iconic images of Eastern Market and Green Dot Stables.

"As Detroiters, we are born and bred with a civic pride that we are continually told is somewhat uncommon. We wanted the city, and the people in the city, to be the video for this simple reason. It is an exciting time to be from Detroit--as we believe it's a city that is in the midst of reinventing itself in a huge way," the band wrote in a statement about the video.

The video was directed by Detroit native Andrew Smart.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. will perform April 21 at Detroit's Majestic Theatre.
