"Re: MY Tennessee Girl Song"

Muffins inspire country song

22 April 2010

JOHNNY Cash and McMuffins have inspired a song that was played on a specialist radio station.

Erith songwriter and father-of-two Wayne Jacobs, wrote My Tennessee Girl, which has been played six times daily by UK Country Radio.

The song features the lines: "It's six in the morning she here's a train a coming; The wheels are a humming, to our Johnny Cash song," and a chorus with the lines: "My Tennessee girl... She's the girl of my dreams, she as cute as they come; She always buys me coffee with an egg McMuffin bun."

The song won the director's award in a competition run by American company, Paramount.

Mr Jacobs, 48, of Friday Road, Erith, said: "I wanted it to write a country song but with a modern theme.

"I was inspired to write my song with regards to the Johnny Cash film Walk the Line. He composed his song to the sound of a train.

"So I envisaged what it would be like in Nashville, rolling in to work on a train with my girlfriend, who wears my ring, waiting for me on the platform.

"Every time she meets me, she would always buy me a coffee and an 'Egg McMuffin' bun."

Paramount were so impressed they suggested he do a full production for radio with a seven-piece band and backing vocals. The tune proved an instant hit with online station UK Country Radio.

Mr Jacobs said: "It's very exciting having your song played on the radio. Hopefully somebody famous like Kenny Rogers will hear it and sign me up.

"Getting played on an American radio station would be the ultimate as country is so big over there."

The civil servant has hopes of it sparking the interest of a major company.

He added: "It would be like winning the lottery if McDonalds wanted to use it as a jingle."

The songwriter has also auditioned for Britain's Got Talent, Live and Unsigned and he has appeared on BBC Radio Kent's Pat Marsh show. To listen to Wayne's song visit www.ukcountryradio.com.
