Hello everybody,

I couldn’t remember if I had ever posted this here and if I did, skip past it. But it is part of what I do in my teaching stuff. I work with writers and artists developing their skills and approach to music. This is an example, and since it is football season, I bring this one out.

STACY YOUNG is a mid 40’s woman from Kansas City, Mo. who made many trips to Nashville, particularly to work with me. She would come in, spend a couple of days, I would review her songs, and help her write some new ones to expand her catalog and then introduce her to some other writers and artists, as well as she would meet them on her own.
One trip she wanted to write a football themed song about a husband who ignore’s his wife during the season. The direction she was taking it, basically COMPLAINING about him not giving her attention, didn’t really work, and at the same time, a ton of my friends were doing the FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUES, all betting money and forming their own teams.

So basically we combined the two and the song, “I WANT TO BE YOUR FANTASY FOOTBALL TEAM” was born. A few months after we wrote it, we recorded a demo on it, and a couple years after that, she made a connection which led to the SOUTHERN SIRENS a all girl trio out of Louisville Ky. They did this video of it.

Since today is the first day of FOOTBALL SEASON, it seems like the right time to put it back up.
Cheers! Roll Tide!

Hee hee hee. Love that they’re wearing their beau’s football jerseys. With high cut boots to boot. So cute.

Thanks for sharing it, Marc. Brought a smile.
