Hook ‘Em Horns!

September 7, 2012

On August 25th, the word went out to Austinites to don their orange Longhorn garb and head to The Speakeasy bar for an early morning promo shoot featuring Old 97’s. The capacity crowd was treated to a mini-concert and multiple takes of a Longhorn-friendly tweaked version of State of Texas.

For those of you lucky enough to live within the Longhorn viewing area, you’ve probably seen the finished product already. For the rest of us, here ya go!

  1. Nice job boys! When are you coming back to Chicago?

    UT Football and Old 97’s–a match made in Texas. Perfection. All the guys look bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for an early-morning shoot, just as if nobody had stayed up all night after the HOB Dallas show. ; )

  2. Is this version available for download?

    • Not at this time, no, Brandon.

    • Brandon – actually you can download it on iTunes.

  3. Please make this available for download! PLEASE! We host Longhorn watching parties every weekend and want a version of this we can play whenever!

  4. I don’t think this version is on iTunes — at least, I can’t find it, and haven’t heard that it would be. Jen, are you sure it’s not the original you’re seeing?
