Larry the Cable Guy will release a 4th of July special digitally – a download package is being distributed exclusively by Basecamp Productions. The special was taped at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb., on Independence Day in support of Husker fans on the University of Nebraska at Lincoln Campus. Larry’s appearance was in conjunction with The City of Lincoln’s 2-day event, “Uncle Sam Jam.” The digital download package is called Tailgate Party, and you can download it here.
Prior to the taping, Larry The Cable Guy said, "I am looking forward to the Fourth of July show at the stadium. It’s a dream come true for me as I spent every football season since I was a little kid in Pawnee city listening to games coming from that field."
Happy National Country Music Day!!!
Did you all know that July 4th is National Country Music Day? I didn’t know it either. Not until I read it at examiner.com. Jace Shoemaker-Galloway’s article tells us “July 4th is National Country Music Day! Whether you love the old country classics or prefer the newer, edgier tunes with a touch of rock-n-roll, today is a great day to celebrate country music.” Now this is my kind of holiday. I wonder if Hallmark has a card for it yet.
Alan Jackson as recorded our National Anthem for his hometown Rotary Club, in Newnan, Ga. The song is supposed to be debuted on July 4, at a celebration in Newnan, and after that it is to go on regular rotation on radio stations across the country for the July 4 holiday weekend. I hope it ends up being played at our fireworks show.
What are your favorite songs for July 4? There’s a list of the Top Ten Fourth of July Songs for Your Country Style BBQ Party at AC Associated Content Arts & entertainment. Good list.
I do need to correct them though – the number one song on that list was Courtesy of the Red White and Blue, and they have it as being sung by Angry American. I think we all know the song was subtitled (Angry American), and the singer would be Toby Keith. Here are the other songs on their list: Only in America by Brooks & Dunn; American Made by the Oak Ridge Boys; This Ain’t No Rag It’s A Flag by Charlie Daniels Band; Have you Forgotten by Darryl Worley; Independence Day by Martina McBride; Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning by Alan Jackson; America Will Survive by Hank Williams Jr.; The American Way by Hank Williams Jr.; and America by Waylon Jennings.
This is usually where I put up a YouTube video, by someone famous, that has something to do with what I’ve written about.
Today, I have a YouTube video. It is about July 4th. It is about honoring and remembering all the soldiers we lost fighting for our freedoms. But the song isn’t by some famous recording artist. It is written and being performed by the Worship Team leader of First Baptist Church in Osterville, Mass. It is an original song in tribute to our fallen heroes. It’s beautiful. The song was posted on YouTube in May 2008, for Memorial Day, I’m sure. But the message works for our Independence Day holiday, too. Enjoy the song.
We have a few days before we get to celebrate with our parties, picnics and fireworks displays – I hope all of you enjoy your weekend. I’ll get something up here before then … and I should be able to answer the rest of my e-mail, too!
