View Full Version : Need Your Help

My uncle has written and sung a song about Texas. He is making a youtube video for it and he needs pictures of Texas that you would be willing to let him use. Here is his letter:
Hey Scott,

The song is attached. Please feel free to forward it to anyone you think might like it.

I’m just “trying to get it out there.” The style does not fit Today’s Country radio, so I hope to stir up something with it on the internet, starting with a music slide show video on Youtube.

I still need the Cowboys stadium for sure, and/or an inside shot of it during a game.

The other things mentioned in your previous email would be good too.

Also around Dallas, maybe a shot of the Texas Ranger statue inside Love Field terminal if it still exists.

I’ve got a shot of Big Tex at the Fair Grounds.

Around the state, I still need a fun shot of Galveston beaches,

Stonewall for peaches – that’s near the LBJ Ranch on US 290 east of Fredericksburg,

Could use better shots of actual cowboys and cowgirls – maybe at a rodeo

A good shot or two at a rodeo – for Ft Worth,

A good shot of the Broken Spoke honky tonk on South Lamar in Austin,


Something to fit The Red River Valley along the Texas/Oklahoma border,

Something to fit The Streets of Laredo – old cowboy town and/or current,

Good shot(s) of west Texas cotton field - for San Angelo,

The Brisket barbecue place in Lockhart – south of Austin on US 183,

Something for Beaumont,

Something for Brownsville,

Something for Texarkana,

Something for El Paso

*** If nothing else, photos of City Limit signs can be used.

And any shots to go with the chorus lyrics about the

Heart of Texas,

Spirit of Texas,

Don’t Mess With Texas,


I can tie an instrumental version of the song to the end of the vocal version, and rerun the volunteered photos with credits if desired.

It should be noted that sending photos to me constitutes legal permission for me to use them in this video.

Email the pictures directly to him at jerrykgreen@earthlink.net

I am trying to upload the song, but it keeps telling me it failed to upload.
