Texas Lightning, who represented Germany in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, have not only been working on their new single in the last few weeks, but also received a very special document from the senate of the US-American state Texas: It declares them honorary citizens of the state they are named after.

According to texaslightning.net, it was the idea of Steve Sivek, who lives in Texas. Since he is a huge fan of the country band's music, he asked the Texas state representative Tommy Wiliams to make them honorary citizens of the "lonestar state". You can watch the document in a new section on their official homepage called awards here .

New version of album
Their new single, which will appear on 29th September, is called I promise. Together with five other new songs, it will be published on a new version of their first album Meanwhile, back at the ranch that has already been awarded a gold disc. Furthermore, there will also be a de luxe Christmas version with an additional DVD, containing videos, interviews and more.

Their song contest entry No no never, written and composed by lead singer Jane Comerford, was a huge hit in Germany. Despite only reaching 15th position in the final, the song is currently on second position in the chart of the most sold singles in 2006, having remained in the singles Top Ten for almost five months.
