Dear TAXI staff & peeps!!

I guess all the wishing, praying, thinking, dreaming, and networking with Nashville folks has finally paid off - BIG TIME!

This morning I received an unsolicited email from George Strait's publisher. Apparently they were scanning Soundcloud for some original Country/Gospel material for George's next album project.
Well - seems that they liked what they heard and the lyrics they read - and decided to offer to buy the entire My King's Country collection;
(you know - they call him "King George") - I guess they figured it'd be a great fit for him. Here's the link they referenced:

I've learned through these TAXI Community Forums and having attended 3 Road Rally conventions, that "sync fees" - the upfront kind - can be upwards of a million dollars for a project like this.
And - with George's Grammy-winning history - who knows what the residuals could be?!

Well - DANG!!
Happy Easter, everyone - er - "Y'alls!"
Yippie-Eye-Oh-Ki-YAY!! I couldn't have asked or dreamed for much more than that. :o :P WOOHOO!! :)
And Happy April 1st, too!!
