2013 Season of "Turkey Call" Introduces New Theme Song
EDGEFIELD, S.C. — The NWTF's television show "Turkey Call" launched its 2013 season with a new theme song, inspired by wild turkey hunting.
Singer-songwriter Tony Young collaborated with NWTF champion turkey caller Scott Ellis to create the new track, "Waitin' on Tom," which first debuted on the Jan. 1 episode on Pursuit Channel.
The upbeat theme song accurately expresses the excitement felt when waiting on a gobbler to come into view during a hunt.
Young, a native Floridian, had no trouble accurately describing a wild turkey hunt. An avid deer and turkey hunter, Young previously had his own hunting and fishing television show. When he is not writing or performing music, he serves as the hunting expert and media coordinator for the state's fish and game department.
Young has played the Southeast club and festival circuit for the past 20 years. He has performed with artists such as B.B. King, .38 Special, Molly Hatchet and Trace Adkins.
"Turkey Call" airs four times per week: Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.; 1 a.m. on Thursday; 6:30 p.m. Saturday; and 10 p.m. on Sunday. For more information about "Turkey Call," visit http://www.nwtf.org/tv_magazines/turkeycall-tv.html.
