KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — In Kansas City, Missouri, Chiefs fans are showing their support with music. Over the past two weeks, singers have posted song after song dedicated to the team.

Rick “RocknRick” Patterson is the man behind the “Mahomie Show Me Shuffle.” As a Kansas City native who grew up in a musical family and as a Chiefs fan, Patterson said writing a song was a natural way to celebrate the team.

The blues musician called it the easiest song he’s ever written.

“One morning, I'm at the kitchen table and they had Chiefs stats being told on the TV,” Patterson said, describing his inspiration. “In the background, they mentioned he looks to the left, he throws to the right, Patrick Mahomes he never can guess. I started writing things down and said this will be fun.”

The song is short, less than three minutes, but is packed with lyrics honoring Chiefs Kingdom like:

Coach Andy Reid, KC Wolf, fans and team, big tough family, it’s a Kansas City thing, love and passion is what they bring and it charges on to win a Super Bowl ring.

Patterson partnered with Nuvidia to put his song on CDs. He promises to donate a portion of CD sales revenue to Patrick Mahomes’ 15 and the Mahomies Foundation.

You can follow Patterson on Facebook for information on how to buy a CD, email him at rocknrickkcbluesman@yahoo.com, or pick up a CD in person at DeMasters Insurance located at 1130 Westport Rd, Kansas City, MO.
