Not only is Kyle Hutton the founder of The Real Life Real Music Foundation, whom we proudly sponsor, he is also actively raising money for Hurricane Harvey relief along with singer, Roger Creager
Proud Texans, Kyle Hutton and Roger Creager, who have been good friends for many years, were checking on each other after Hurricane Harvey hit south Texas, and realized they had made it through much better off than a lot of others. They had an overwhelming urge to help those effected by Hurricane Harvey the best way they knew how, with music. Collaborating with many other Texas Music artists, Kyle and Roger wrote and sang, "Faith In The Water". Recently released on the radio and on itunes, "Faith In The Water" is being used to raise money for the flood victims by supporting the Rebuild Texas Fund.
We ended up sitting down and writing a song that captured the emotion that we were feeling, that captured the emotions that our friends and neighbors down here were dealing with. And I realized what an emotional chord it was striking with me. - Kyle Hutton
“Faith in the Water” is more than a song, it’s a statement. A statement of resolve that’s as big as the State from which it hails. Written by singer-songwriters Roger Creager and Kyle Hutton, the song paints a picture of the despair, hope, and determination on the faces of their friends and neighbors in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and accomplishes a feat possibly unmatched in Texas Music history. Twenty-five of the scenes most accomplished artists have joined their hearts and voices to form The Texas Red Dirt Choir in a quest to raise $1,000,000 for those affected by the $190 billion dollar storm.
“Faith in the Water” reflects more than just the generosity of the front-men and women that sing on the project. The song, recorded in famed Bismeaux Studios (Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel), features A-list session players and studio professionals donating their time and talents to bring this musical fund-raising initiative to life.

When asked by a journalist for the Texas Monthly, "What do you want people to take away from the song? Roger Creager said,
In a world that seems tragic, particularly as we watch storm after tragedy after hurricane after earthquake, it’s really nice to see people loving each other. I feel like this song highlights that. It’s a little bit of a morale booster.
