The creative team behind the film SILO has teamed up with singer/songwriter Easton Corbin, and they have an opportunity for fans and supporters to be featured in a music video. Corbin sings The Only Life I Know, and he was able to draw on his own farming experiences to tell a story both personal and one that is recognized by so many people around this country: the experience of being a lifelong farmer.
SILO is asking for you to submit stories, photos, and videos that tell us what being a lifelong farmer means to you and your family. They will then pick their favorites of the bunch and could end up using them in the official The Only Life I Know music video, which is expected to be released later in the summer.
The Only Life I Know was featured in the movie SILO, which was released in May across 36 states and is available via Video OnDemand, iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, Google, and other platforms. The film explores the devastation that a grain bin accident can bring. It’s an important farm safety lesson, and the producers say that only a small percentage of Americans really know the risk due to the lack of media representation.
Your stories, photos, and videos can be submitted here for consideration in the music video.
In addition to raising awareness of farm safety, the film is donating a portion of its proceeds to the Foundation’s Progressive Agriculture Safety Days, recognized as the largest rural safety and health education program for children in North America.
SILO follows a harrowing day in an American farm town. Disaster strikes when teenage Cody becomes the victim of a grain entrapment accident. Family, neighbors, and first responders must put aside their differences to rescue him from drowning in the 50-foot-tall silo where corn quickly turns to quicksand. Shedding light on an issue plaguing rural America, SILO shows how dangerous modern farming can be, while also highlighting the ways communities band together to look after one another.
“We have worked with the ag community for years to make this film a reality,” said Sam Goldberg, producer of SILO.
