The United States of Football

Sep 2, 2012

The long-awaited private screening of filmmaker Sean Pamphilon’s latest movie, The United States of Football, will be in Pittsburgh later this month (read more about USoF - click HERE). In collaboration with Sean, former New Orleans Saints’ offensive tackle turned country rock star Kyle Turley composed and wrote a new song called Fortune and Pain that’s part of the soundtrack to the movie. Sean and his crew filmed the music video for the song.
You can check out the tracks from Kyle’s latest album on his website - click HERE – or on his label Gridiron Records - click HERE. All proceeds from downloads of his new song will go to benefit the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund.

    Video and Song are fantastic! A great song that explains the conflict and sobering reality of football. One exchanges fortune for pain.

    An excellent song!

    I’m a fan of Dave Pear’s Blog and I’m a fan of Kyle Turley. I’m also quickly becoming a Fan of Mr. Pamphilon’s interesting biographical films.

    I’ve purchased Kyle’s six songs from iTunes and my friends and I have Rocked with “Death, Drugs & the Double Cross, Cellar Door, We Ride, Fortune and Pain – which sounds like Country Soul – Dark River and Smokin’. Kyle is a talented singer and my friends and family and I support him 100 percent! I have asked my FaceBook and Twitter followers too check out his songs and make a purchase because the proceeds are for a good cause. Kyle’s songs will sell themselves anyway because his songs have the foot stomping and slow dance style that most people enjoy.

    If I didn’t like his songs, I wouldn’t buy them!

    Cheers too Success! In honor of the film and song.

    Wow, I really can appreciate the heart and soul that was put in this song! It’s like a song is not a song if you haven’t lived the life of the song. You feel the sensation, the spirit, and thought that went into every word. Love it. To God be the Glory for what he has done. He will always make room for your gifts.
