Official Game Song of the Eagles, "Blue,White," Set for Thursday Release
STATESBORO, Ga. - Just like the return of the option, everything old is new again. A new version of the 2007 tribute to the Georgia Southern Football Team, "Blue,White," will be released by songwriter and recording artist Terry "Slimm Duddy" Price II Thursday, September 2nd at 8:03 p.m. on the GeorgiaSouthernEagles.com website.
The release of "Blue,White," coincides with the start of the 2010 Eagle Football season and the announcement of "Blue,White" as the "Official Game Song" of Georgia Southern Athletics.
While the version released this week includes an introduction specific to football, another version, for use by all the Eagle athletics teams will also be available. Slimm Duddy collaborated with his producers HitSynth, consisting of Darrell Bailey, Sean White and Sidney Ingleton, on the new song. The addition of traditional Georgia Southern chants and trumpets and strings created an "epic" feel while the new introduction immediately draws in fans by replaying a great moment in Eagle history.
Slimm Duddy will perform "Blue,White" live at 4:25 p.m. Saturday during the Citizens Bank pre-game show on the Georgia Southern Radio Network. Fans are encouraged to join the pre-game show at its new location near Gate 4 of Paulson Stadium and then stay for the Eagles' arrival on the yellow school buses.
"The main reason I made the song in the first place was to show my pride for the school," said Slimm Duddy. "I also wanted to add something to Georgia Southern, for all the teams at the University. At first we made it just for football, now it's for all of the athletics teams. I have to share the passion and pride with the whole school. When everyone is behind it, it's unstoppable. It adds a dimension to it."
