The Nashville-based performer’s hard-driving, amped-up anthem has been licensed by LSU and the NFL for this season through an agreement with Banshee Music
Nashville, TN (WiredPRNews.com) Anyone who has ever heard Chris Weaver perform knows his songs and style of singing evoke strong emotion, so it’s only fitting that a song about rising above challenges is liked by a major university and professional football.
Banshee Music secured licensing rights with both the LSU Tigers and the NFL for the song “Want It,” which was co-written by Weaver and Matt Rogers.
With lyrics like “It’s the year of blood, sweat and tears. Ain’t no room for second best around here,” and “You’ve gont to want it, you’ve got to need it when it’s time to lay it on the line,” it’s easy to see the connection.
The NFL version was re-recorded by Jordin Sparks and produced by Cool & Dre. Sparks, the daughter of former NFL player Phillipe Sparks, was also just seen singing the National Anthem to help kick off the 2011 season.
LSU features “Want It” on their Geaux Tigers: Official LSU Music compilation and the song is performed by the Chris Weaver Band in its original form.
Weaver’s music has been described as being, “like an old friend that you’d take on a long road trip” by the Jackson Examiner, and “a voice that draws you in immediately… full of raw emotion” by HobNob Wilson.
Chris Weaver is managed by InTune Entertainment, and his first CD release “Standing In Line” resonates with fans due to its mix of classic American rock ‘n roll with a blues feel and even a splash of country.
