I love love love the new hashtag that is sweeping the Twitter nation! The best part of these is the funniest ones are coming from Texas Music artists. It is good to see that some of them don’t take themselves too seriously. It is refreshing actually. Here are some great #shittexascountryartistssay:
This scene is all about the brotherhood, until they take my slot at the Watermelon Thump.
Who’s your radio promoter?
I’ll never sell-out to Nashville.
Can I get a ReTweet for my new CD being on iTunes?
Well, technically it is my Mom’s van.
We’re gonna catch our big break at LJT!
Don’t forget the rugs.
I will just put you on the guest list.
Rita Ballou is such a bitch!
We’ve been on the road a lot this year. We’ve played the Blue Light 16 times.
I co-wrote “Down in Flames”.
I really only listen to rock music, but my influences include Waylon & Willie. That makes me country, right?
I just “SOLD OUT” a free show at Hill’s Cafe.
I’m gonna play a Ryan Adams song now…
I’m not gonna make it to Houston. I missed my flight in Vegas.
Let’s go to whataburger after the show.
Our shirts are the ones with the flying guitar with skulls and crosses.
We aren’t really Tx country..that’s just where we fit best. We really have our own sound.
Dude! Our video played on GAC at 3 a.m. last night! Did you see it?
I know three chords and some cover songs. I think I will start a band.
We’re really big in Nacogdoches.
Anyone at the frathouse have a Fretless 7 string bass? Its time to put ‘Band’ at end of my name.
After party at the Goat….
I love southwest and waffle house!
Do you have paper towel? My wife needs to wipe the concrete off her hands.
Where are all the single ladies? Oh, yeah, by the way, I wrote this song for my wife.
I got SO hammered with (Willy/Cody/Mickey/Gary) Braun last night!
Insert (Mike McClure/Radney Foster/Lloyd Maines) here produced our record too!!
When we finish auto-tuning my vocals we’ll drink this free beer from our Bud sponsorship. Nashville Sucks!
What do you do in the band? I’m the bass player/booking agent/ manager/ tour manager/ merch manager/ PR…
I smoked out with Willie on his bus.
We’re kickin’ ass in Lubbock!
Does this Southern Thread outfit need another necklace? What about a bracelet?
Aren’t there anymore O’Neil sisters?
I wrote this song with George Strait cutting it in mind.
I think we really do a cool cover of (insert Wagon Wheel/Folsom Prison/Come Pick Me Up)
We’re trying to get on CMT’s Puresomething please vote all day for us. We’ll RT that about 200 times as well.
My drummer takes better crowd shots than yours.
Ask my wife…errr…I mean manager.
I have 150 miles to the next show…good thing I have a bus!
Go like our “crew” page!
On the bus headed from Austin to Waco!
Don’t tell my wife.
Nashville Sucks but my manager, booker, and promoter lives there and I go every chance I get.
Well, if all these don’t SCREAM “make a video with all the scenelebrities”…I don’t know what does! Some smart computer person should get on that. Wait, too late! This is fresh from my email box. The idea is the brainchild of Chris Marsh from Social Revolver. He is is the publicist for Rosehill and Bri Bagwell.
Thanks for your interest in helping out with the video! Should be a fun project.
Here’s what I have in mind: Film yourself saying some of the sh*t a Texas country artists would say. (For example, “are you sponsored by Southern Thread,” “who’s your radio promoter,” and “we deserve a better time slot” are all acceptable phrases.)
Shoot the video with your smartphone or flip cam, send it my way (email@example.com), and we’ll pick the best ones (no matter how popular the artist) and compile them into one awesome, hilarious video and post it YouTube for everyone to share with their fans. If the attachments are too big for email, contact me and I’ll provide more instructions.
Feel free to film a couple spots – the more the better! Bonus points will be awarded to those who make fun of themselves, and make sure to play nice with others. This is supposed to be a fun project for all involved and all who may watch – I do not want to upset anyone or bash anyone’s music.
Any clip making fun of any other artist in a malicious way will not be accepted.
If your clip makes the video, I’ll make sure to denote who each artist is, along with their Twitter handle.
The more popular this becomes, the more exposure for the artists.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration. I hope to receive your clip
And don’t worry boys and girls, this isn’t MY project I am just the messenger. You don’t have to worry about being Ballou’balled just for joining in on the fun.
Update: Drew Kennedy is even playing along!
