Yes, Shay Dillon fans, Shay is going 'Austin or Bust'! Shay Dillon and Paul Kraushaar, my singer and music director for my film soundtracks, will be leaving for Austin, Texas soon for an 11-day professional music stage performance.
Shay sent out a newsletter very recently. The newsletter is geared for donations to help defray traveling and lodging expenses. Shay put together an 'Austin or Bust' Limited Edition Special Package for her fans. What that includes is a signed 17-song CD. On that CD are 3 non-released songs Shay wrote and sings for Sage Sweetwater's upcoming Lesbian Western Film soundtrack from her book adapted to screen From the Convent to the Rawhide: The Saga of Sadie Cade and Vi Montana, which we simply call 'The Saga'. It is currently in Development with Triboro Pictures.
Also included is one song from the Jett Durango TV series adapted from Sage Sweetwater's Night of the Foal: The New Riders of the Purple Sage, dedicated to Blue Sleighty and C.G. McGovern-Bowen which Shay wrote and sings. These songs will never be released or performed by Shay as they are a part of the film soundtrack, so this is a very special package indeed. Shay has set up a page for a $25 donation which includes a signed photo, a signed poster of her CD Through the Fire, and other things.
Today, I sent $25 dollars via paypal to Shay Dillon for the 'Austin or Bust' Limited Edition Special Package. I then donated the package back to Shay Dillon to present to anyone of her fans of her choosing. Shay has a widespread fan base, so it wasn't too hard to present this awesome package to one of her lucky fans! And she did just that! She let me know and she let the lucky fan know they were the recipient and that it was a gift from Sage Sweetwater! Many of my fans are also Shay Dillon fans, and Shay Dillon fans are also Sage Sweetwater fans. We cross over into one another's artistic territory, so if you would like to donate and receive Shay's Limited Edition Package, this link will take you to the paypal details and what's included in this special package.
Thanks to all the fans! You all make it happen. We love you all!
