"The Armadillo Tales" was conceived by writer/ director William Booth who had a vision of bringing the best of Texas talent to the big screen.  He explains, "For years I have been in awe of the immense and unique talent we have in Texas. I have been following these careers for years and felt each of them had what it took to translate on film. Wait till you see the magic! There is nothing more Texas than capturing the spirit of it on the wild frontier." William Booth teamed up with actor Bob Fanucchi who starred and produced the independent movie. The premier will be a celebration of Texas independence and talent.  Check out the "Courage" trailer at

San Antonio native Stephanie Urbina Jones has become a popular figure in Texas music with several acclaimed albums and the Texicana Concert Series. She has appeared on numerous TV shows in Texas and has been featured in print media across the state.  Stephanie will be a featured artist on the Troubadour Texas TV show that will air on the CW Network in September.  Stephanie's new single "I'm Not A Pinata" has garnered rave reviews including accolades from music historian and critic, Robert Oermann, who said, "The instrumental single is a snappy country rocker with a whiplash beat. The vocal version has a husky alto intro before the smoking track catches fire. I have long been a fan of this performer, and this time around she's really kicking tail."
