Dusty Drake Fuels Steeler Fans Frenzy
Country artist Dusty Drake has contributed to a song celebrating the Pittsburgh Steelers football team as it heads to the Super Bowl, Feb. 1.
When Steve Yurjevich of Moon Township, Pa., had a song idea, he called on his friend and Pittsburgh-area native Dusty to help him finish it. Assisted by songwriter Kevin Fowler, the three penned a song called "The 12th Man" that celebrates the Steelers and their faithful fans. The song, performed by Dusty Drake, is set to the melody of Mark Chesnutt’s 2004 hit, “The Lord Loves a Drinking Man.” And it's becoming an instant hit. Frank Bell, Vice President of Programming for Keymarket, which operates 14 radio stations in western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio, says his request lines have been “ringing off the hook” since this single was released.
