10/6/12 ~ Hello everyone! It has been such a busy year working on this documentary and album. It is with great honor I had the opportunity to not only capture the voices of so many of my music heroes on this album, but also to sit down and talk with them and listen to their journey to stardom and the obstacles and triumphs they experienced along the way. It is my hope and desire that through this film and album the world will see the great power music has to transcend all boundaries of discrimination and hate. A true celebration of American music Texas style. I invite you all to the movie premiere at the Woodlawn theatre on Thursday November the 8th. The doors will open at 7pm. Right after the film we will have a premiere of the album as well featuring Flaco Jimenez, Michael Salgado, Bobby Pulido, Ruben Ramos, Sunny Sauceda, Chente Barrera, Gabe Garcia, Joel Guzman, and myself. The album is a mixture of Tejano, Conjunto, and mainstream Nashville country. I hope to see you all there. Here is the link to the official website, and the link to the Facebook fan page. Please go by and like it. www.thisismycountryonline.com http://www.facebook.com/pages/This-is-my-Country/366046436805911 Here also is the link where you can buy tickets for the evening. http://muttproductionsmoviepremiere.com/ ~ Rick
