Ghost Town Video

I don't own a video camera. Therefore, all our "music videos" are more like glorified vacation slides set to music. Yet artfully done!
Here's one I did recently for our song, Ghost Town:

It Was Fun While It Lasted

So, here we are, the 25th of the month, and our song, "Ghost Town" has dropped from the number one position on OurStage to number sixty-two. Oh well. It was too good to last.

Still, out of 382 entries, it's not bad. Nothng to shout about, such as:

Ghost Town, by Red River on OurStage

How much of a dork do you have to be to post a banner that shouts, "We're Number Sixty-Two!"

OurStage is but one of the sites where we've slapped up some songs. It's sort of a fun diversion, but I don't take it too seriously.

So no, I'm not crying about our steep drop in the standings. Cuz, hey! We're Number Sixty-Two!

We're Number One!

I don't go to OurStage very often anymore, because we've kind of tanked there in recent months. But we had a few friend requests, so I logged on to approve them.

I was surprised to find that we are sitting at #1 in Americana/Alt Country, with "Ghost Town"! Out of 332 entries! Yay!

On the realistic side, it's only the 11th of the month, so we'll probably end up at #332 by the time the month's over, but hey! It's still cool!

Movie Trailer For Bucking The Tiger!

My (new) friend, Michelle Graye, sent me a link to the movie trailer for her film, "Bucking The Tiger", in which our song, "Ghost Town", will play during the closing credits.

Well, yes, I'm excited! And even better, Michelle will be sending me a DVD of the movie.

The film is based on a real shoot-out that happened in Tombstone in 1882 between Billy "The Kid" Claiborne and Buckskin Frank Leslie.
I guess those Michelles are just very creative people, you think?

Here's the trailer:

Here are some still images from the shoot:

Yea, that last picture could definitely be me. Red hair, free beer. Yea, there you go. That could be me. Except for that "No Smoking" sign. That has to go.

Oh, and here's the song!

Baby Steps

There hasn't been much to write home about lately regarding Red River and our "success stories" - ha ha! (What success stories?) But, to be fair, we haven't been very productive for awhile, either.

There have been a couple of things worth mentioning, though, I guess.

I received an email from Audiosparx this week, letting me know that one of our songs, "Ghost Town", is being used in a short film that will be shown at a student film festival. So, that's kinda nice. The filmmaker will be using the entire song for the end title. It would be nice to know more about the project, but I'm not going to badger the person, to try to find out more. All I know is, it's a short western film.

Then, today, I got an email, telling me that a song I'd entered (and forgotten about!) won an honorable mention in the Song Of The Year contest back in December. I truly forgot that I had even entered anything. It must have been one of my weaker (drunk) moments - no, I'm just kidding about the drunkenness. But I really don't, as a rule, enter anything that I have to pay to enter.

I also forgot which song I'd entered. I'm thinking it was probably, "Prayed For It To Rain". At one time, I was pretty enthusiastic about that song. Also, now thinking back, I believe there were some decent judges in that contest, a fact which most likely convinced me to part with my money.

Of course, this "award" won't do anything for us (it won't even give me a return on my investment), but still, it's a nice pat on the back.

Oh, my name is here: Songwriter Of The Year Honorable Mention List

(Click quick, before it's gone!)

So, there you have it........little teeny baby steps.

If you want to listen to "Ghost Town" or "Prayed For It To Rain", you'll find them here:
