Singing with responsibility

Mike Sudhalter  |  March 28, 2010


Singer/guitarist/producer Shawn Camfield, left, with Hunter McKithan, has put together a compilation album for his label, Lucky Duck Records, to raise awareness for "Rocking With Responsibility and making sure the roads are safe, from drunk drivers

Music, especially rowdy, upbeat music is all about having a good time. Scratch that. A great time.

But if there's one condition for having a good time, it's that everything's done in good fun and everyone gets home safely.

That's why Texas Country artist/producer Shawn Camfield of Humble, Texas compiled an album of songs for "Rocking for Responsibility: Volume One" by Really Listens Texas

Camfield's label, Lucky Duck Records, partnered with Budweiser and Yellow Cab to promote safe driving, and he thanked "all the artists and their support in making our live music community safer."

At live shows, Camfield has become personally involved and ordered taxis for people who appeared too intoxicated to drive home.

The album includes two of his songs, "Yesterday Won't Change," and "Lights Get Low" as well as songs from rising Texas Country stars - the Still Standin Band, Hunter McKithan Band, David Grace, Bo Cox, Hill Country Jane, Matt Mead Band and Matt Begley.

Kudos to Camfield for combining good music with a great cause.
