Richard Speight, Jr. The man, the myth, the legend himself, is making an album, and I'm helping him do it!
407 backers pledged $36,549 to help bring this project to life.

About

$36,549

Listen, Dick's making an album, because Dick wants to make an album (also, possibly because Jason has convinced Dick he wants to make an album... but let’s not get bogged down by “details” or “facts”).  However it came about, we now both want to make this thing, and some fans seem to want us to make this thing, so we're gonna make this thing. We weren't planning on doing any crowd funding for this because it is a fun project we are happy to spend our own money to make happen. But some fans have expressed their hope that we would offer some of the fun perks that have been offered before on the Covers with Friends albums, so we were happy to oblige. There's some really fun stuff offered here like studio visits, backer shows, beer Koozies, bottle openers... I sense a theme here.

We know that there are A WHOLE LOT of worthy causes out there, and with 6 kids between the two of us we also know life can be expensive. So we are not asking for your money. That's why we set our funding goal for this project at a whopping $1 (...and then subsequently raised it to $5000 because Kickstarter asked us to not do a "stunt" of a one dollar campaign, and they are in charge so we said ok).  As I already said, this thing will get made regardless. If you want to save your hard earned cash and wait for the release and snag a copy then at the standard price, then you do you friend!  However, if you want to pay a bit of a premium for email updates, RS Jr.  funny videos, and a signed copy, do it! Or if you see something else in this crazy campaign you need, like a studio hang, or a party or a Skype or a beverage coozy... snag it!  If not, we promise, it's all good. We still love you!  Come join us for a Dick Jr. & The Volunteers gig at some point in the near future. (Jason just has to convince Dick to play live shows next... but one hurdle at a time!) 

We were originally going to say a portion of the proceeds from this campaign will go to charity, but Kickstarter also forbids campaigns from raising money for charity. (So many rules! But they're in charge so we said ok!) But doesn't forbid a personal contribution,  so Rich and I will be making contributions to The Wounded Warrior Campaign at the close of this Kickstarter in honor of two very special vets who were killed in the line of duty, Warren H. "Skip" Muck and Michael N."Chip" Manns. 

Risks and challenges

Common risks include trying to finish a project when the two of us are as busy as we are, but we promise, one way or another, we are gonna get it done come hell or high water.
