But, when I got word that they are using it for the ‘REDNECK ISLAND’ theme, now, that is really cool. I really appreciate the fact that it is being so well received and thank Serg Selinas and Dale Oliver for the kick-ass music.” Storm continues, “And on another note, I hung out with Steve Austin in Nashville last night and we had a ball.”
