Synopsis:

Jill Riley was born into the fourth generation of a large, cattle ranching and wheat farming family. Her great grandparents and their children survived the dust bowl in the Texas Panhandle. Jill grew up observing the fitting debates among the cattlemen of the second and third generations. She has chronicled their important history through a twelve song story album. It is also now etched in stone in her "Songumentary" film. The lessons she's learned through digging into the rich soil of her family heritage have magnified a micro version of the issues we face together today, as an entire nation - the people or “family” of America as a whole. The writings and productions of The Common Ground Sound Project spark relevant and imperative conversations for the perilous times we live in and aim to encourage, from underneath the fog of politics, a return to love and unity among "The Commoners."
