Ladies Of Tampa has been submitted for Oscar consideration. It’s a first for me and a real thrill. Even just being submitted. Many thanks and props to my co-writers Matthew McConaughey and Frankie Pine. This cute little song was so fun and easy to create.
I was on set when Matthew McConaughey performed the song. It was a big deal for me. He had to breathe fire right in the next shot. But I had a buzz all day just from watching our song get filmed.
Matthew can hit some really low notes. For me to sing it, I have to transpose it from E up to A. But since I don’t really have ladies in Tampa it hasn’t been much of an issue.
Music really is some kind of fun.
