Folks!! I get to proof the video this weekend, and it’s on track to be released on August 4th – a date that has special meaning to me. (All I will say publicly is that without August 4th, this song would never have been written.)
I’d like to take a moment to thank some special people – the local stars – the four couples in the music video!
We chose 4 generations because I found out after the song was released that it relates to people of all ages.
These four couples are the embodiment of the lyrics – they have found the “Magic”. They found each other. You can see their love for each other in every scene – without dialogue. It jumps out at you!
It’s also clear in every shot that they have FUN together, and that comes off clearly on the screen – that they enjoy each other’s company.
The title “You’ll Know I’m There” applies to every one of these couples!
All four couples gave their time, their expertise, changed worked hours, worked in “not ideal” conditions – from freezing river water, a scalding fireplace, and record heat – for FREE – for a good cause!
And a HUGE shout out to the dozens of local people who worked behind the scenes to make this a reality! I don’t know what I did right in my life to warrant such support, but I’m forever grateful!
All the people in my life are like this! I could have asked a dozen people to do this and they all would have said yes without hesitation. This town has some amazing people!!
Hey! ALL online royalties are donated – in perpetuity – to The River Fund! Give them a buck!!! Either go to their website and donate a dollar – or go to my website and donate a dollar and get a free song! Or get the song from iTunes, Amazon etc. – and they get about 90 cents.
Anyone else notice that despite countless hours of filming “You’ll Know I’m There” – there’s not a single picture of me??? TWO cameras on me – and yet no pics. I sense a conspiracy! I wonder if I’ll even be in this video. LOLOL
Billy and Kevin in the smoking section 🙂 I think I was the only person who didn’t go in the pool that day! I had two other commitments the same afternoon and couldn’t change clothes before each one, so I had to stay dry.
