How it all began: You Want to Put Together a What??
During a conversation with Creed Fisher (Odessa based Red Dirt royalty), Scott let an idea blossom and made the gigantic decision to become music promoters. Dawn didn't really think he would remember having the idea within a week or two when Scott turned to her and said, “Let's put on a concert.” Without skipping a beat she replied, “Absolutely! I'm all for it, Babe!” A week went by and he talked about it more and more. She laughs now as she remembers, “All I could think was 'You want to put together a what!!??”
Get Stoned Picks owners, Dawn and Scott Foreman have been planning and coordinating the First Annual Million Barrel Blowout to be held in Monahans, Texas inside the Million Barrel Tank. With 20 Bands spread out over three days of family entertainment, food, drink, camping, music it is a tank of fun! And Scott and Dawn get to promote the future of Red Dirt Music and participate in the journey of a rising star or two....maybe 20.
“We love each and every one of the bands we sponsor. As people, as friends, and as family. When a song moves up the charts we are like proud parents almost.
“I am so proud of the dedication and hard a** work that our Red Dirt royalty puts into every song and every performance. We kind of adopted them, you know? We have our own Red Dirt dysfunctional family and we each stand behind one another supporting good times and bad. We all put our hands out for one another when there is need." says Scott. Dawn continues, "I could not even list all the charity events (such as The Turn the Paige Foundation) and the many, many hours of their time the volunteers and bands donate. This is the best group of individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. The fact that they are my friends and yes, my family just makes it that much better! We are blessed!”
