FUNL Music artist Amber Hayes has recorded "Friday Night Fight" to be used as the official theme song for all televised Cox cable high school football games in Oklahoma.
A native of Weleetka, Okla., Hayes co-wrote "Friday Night Fight" with Angela Sullivan and guitarist Bill DiLuigi and appears in the video segments that introduce the televised games each week. The games will be carried by Cox cable in select markets. The music video was shot during a high school game in Moore, Oklahoma.
"Growing up in Oklahoma and being a cheerleader in high school, I understand exactly how important football is in these communities and across the whole state," sais Amber, who currently lives in Nashville. "I still remember the excitement and the adrenaline rush you'd get being out there on the field, so when I got the opportunity to write and record this song, I didn't think twice about it. I'm really proud to be associated with this Thursday and Friday night tradition in the great state where I grew up."
On October 6th, Hayes will perform at the Hard Rock Café in Nashville for the Forget-Me-Not Alzheimer's benefit, and later that month she travels to Japan and China for additional shows, including the Country Gold Festival. Hayes remains busy writing and recording new material in Nashville for her sophomore album, to be released in 2012.
