Friends of mine down in Houston have just had a great spell of good fortune! The Robbie Seay Band has been putting out great music independently for years and have been signed since 2005. Their song "Rise", off their 2007 album "Give Yourself Away", is being used by American Idol! You can hear it in the background of all of the promos for the new season. What a great way for them to kick off 2008. Congratulations, guys! Check out the commercial.
