Victoria Banks Cuts "City Of Dreams" For Nashville Flood Relief
May 27, 2010 at 3:16 PM (PT)
CANADIAN singer/songwriter VICTORIA BANKS has spearheaded a project to support the flood relief efforts in NASHVILLE through the RED CROSS. Over 40 CANADIAN and AMERICAN artists contributed to the making of the song and video for “City Of Dreams,” including PAM TILLIS, GEORGE CANYON, DANIELLE PECK, BUDDY JEWELL, MICHELLE WRIGHT.
BANKS describes why she decided to take on the project on her website: “I decided to write a song about this city. I called it “City of Dreams”, and it poured out of me onto a tear soaked page. I finished the last line as the plane came in for a landing over a moonlit NASHVILLE, looking out on nothing but a dark emptiness where the downtown core should be and the large areas of blackness where sections of city were under water.”
CMT and GAC-TV are both playing the video and all proceeds from the song will go to the RED CROSS. You can check it out here.
