Thanks for the tune, Kevin Costner



Kevin_costner_bull_durham_2_2 Hey, it's nice to have friends in show biz. Actor Kevin Costner, who also sings in a band called Modern West, has recorded a song for the Tampa Bay Rays to celebrate their AL East division title.

Called It's All Up To You, the song sounds like a typical honky-tonk rocker and features such lyrics that begin, "You got to swing for the fence. Give a hundred percent. Dust yourself off. Get up and do it again."

Use the player below to listen to the complete song. Modern West and Costner played a live show in November 2007 when the Rays unveiled their redesigned uniforms.

You'll have to really concentrate to make out the Costner you remember from flicks like Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. As a rock star, Costner might make you yearn for more on-screen appearances -- and fewer on-stage ones.
