Big News! We’re Nominated for Three Lone Star Emmy® Awards!

[Posted Saturday, September 30, 2017]

Amazing, amazing, amazing news y’all! Guess what?!

So we just found out that our little show has been nominated for three – count ’em – THREE Lone Star Regional Emmy awards! How crazy stinkin’ cool is that?!

We got the news big news as we were driving through Big Bend here in far West Texas, where we’re currently filming for the final episode of our epic upcoming second season (which will kick off on PBS stations around the country this coming January). Crazy thing was, we knew the Emmy announcement would be made Friday afternoon at 3:00pm local time… but if you’ve ever been out here to this part of the world, you know that the skies are big, the roads are long, and cell phone/internet service can be really tough to come by in places. Lo and behold, we were literally driving through miles and miles of desert when 3:00 rolled around and we were nowhere near a cellphone signal. But as we got closer and closer to the West Texas town if Alpine, we got a blip of service! So we excitedly pulled the Jeep over on the side of the road and feverishly read through the announcement on our phones. And sure enough – there was our little show! Listed three times: nominations for Best Program/Feature, Best Directing and Best Photography. Giddy up!

As you might imagine this is an incredible honor, and honestly we really don’t know how to wrap our brains around it all. Our very first time on TV – our very first season – and we wind up with three Emmy nominations! Just. Wow! We’ve both shed lots of tears of joy and excitement the last 24 hours. Crazy.

But one thing’s for sure: we definitely want to share this special moment with all of you guys who have shown us so much love and support as we chase this little dream of ours! Without y’all there would be no TV show. Simple as that. So cheers gang!

Please keep your fingers crossed for us! You can see a full list of all the 2017 nominees here, and the actual awards ceremony will be November 11th in San Antonio. That gives us a few weeks to clean up and find somethin’ respectable to wear. 🙂

We’ll definitely keep y’all up to date. So stay tuned! And of course season two is comin’ up right around the corner. And we can’t wait for y’all to see it! Good stuff.

Cheers peeps! And as always, safe travels!
