‘Ravens Nation’ Gets Baltimore Fanbase Going
BALTIMORE, Md. (CBSDC) - As the Ravens brace for what they hope to be a long playoff run, one group of musically-inclined diehards have released a follow-up to their widely popular Ravens anthem.
It’s called “Ravens Nation” and it’s a highlight reel of Baltimore’s 10-6 season as much as it is a song celebrating the players that don the purple and black and the city they play in.
The first Ravens Nation was outdated, so Robert McFreshington and the Freestate Workshop made a remix to recap this season and distribute to the masses over the internet to help get them pumped for a Super Bowl run.
This year’s version, backed by video highlights of big hits and long touchdown throws, also celebrates the capstone season to Ray Lewis’ brilliant career.
“What we pride ourselves on is our video, as well as our lyrical content are up to date,” said McFreshington. “And it’s relevant for this past season and the playoffs.”
With the help of Retweets by as many as 9 Ravens players themselves, Ravens Nation already has well over 10,000 views, but McFreshington says he’s not stopping there.
“Our goal is to get Ravens nation to become the official Baltimore anthem,” he said. “And hopefully one day get played at Ravens stadium.”
