October 17--  The remake of the movie "Footloose" was the number two movie in the country this past weekend and part of the soundtrack was penned by two Vidalia musicians.

"Indians In My System,' that's what people really knew it as.  The cheerleaders did a routine to it and BANK already had a dance to it, so they learned the dance and did it at a pep rally.  It was played at the football games and at a few of the Vidalia High School basketball games," Wardlaw recalls.

"The whole purpose behind Stackthat Entertainment was to showcase some of the local talent we have here in Toombs County.  To have something in a major Paramount film is a big thing not only for the label and the artists, but also Toombs County.  We're very excited," he says.
