Help fund "Playin' on the Tracks"

$5,755 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 59 months



Hi Everybody!
It has been one exciting year. After months of planning, hours work, and tons of personal investment, the show "Playin’ on the Tracks—LIVE!" is finally available on DVD. On August 1st and 2nd, 2014, we filmed our show at the Towne Centre Theatre in Brentwood Tennessee!!

I partnered up with an amazing team of professionals. They include Grammy award winning Producer & former keyboardist with Waylon Jennings, Barny Robertson, Ashleigh Prince with Tanasqui Films, Julian Chojnacki with Take 8 Films, some of Nashville’s finest musicians, and special guests “Carter’s Chord!”

It’s always been my vision to offer people an evening of excellent entertainment that interweaves music and stories, but even though our DVD is now available, our journey and our need for funding isn't over.  Our ultimate goal is for this film to enable us to interface with the talent buyers and presenters that can help bring it to local venues, community theatres or who knows, maybe even Broadway! 

Though we haven't reached our funding goal, we reached a "no turning back" phase and pressed forward using our own funds to finish the film. We couldn't be more pleased with the final results and the caliber of professionalism and commitment to bring you a quality product that our entire team dedicated themselves to from start to finish.

The reality is, we still need $10,000.00 to see our entire vision through.

We are so grateful to those who have already generously given. We have refreshed our donation levels and rewards to include copies of the DVD as well as other great thank yous. Please help us by sharing this link with your friends, business associates, and any others you think would be interested in funding this campaign. 

We are looking into 2015 with anticipation for a great year!!

Thank you, Friends!
Carter Robertson

For those who don’t know me:

Bio
The daughter of a Dust Bowl immigrant, Carter Robertson was born in Central California, and raised in the opposing worlds of her mother’s rural church culture and her father’s tendency to walk on the wild side. She has worked as an artist, writer, and background singer in the music industry for most of her life. She traveled and recorded as a member of Waylon Jennings' band for many years--first in the "Waylors" all through Country Music’s Outlaw era, and then again with Waymore's Blues Band the last 3 years before Waylon passed. Carter has recorded over 17 albums with Waylon and his wife Jessi Colter. Her voice is the one people hear singing backgrounds on songs such as "Ain't Livin" Long," "Luckenbach Texas" "Are You Ready for the Country," "Come with Me" etc. She & her Grammy Award winning husband Barny Robertson, were also a part of the legendary "Never Say Die" concert recorded live at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville TN. Her recording credits include Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, James Taylor, and many others.
Carter has worked with several different publishing companies, with 5 musicals and over 50 songs for children published.
In 2012 her critically acclaimed memoir "Playin' on the Tracks" was released, as well as her CD "Neighborhood of Secrets."
Most recently she and her husband Barny have partnered up to produced Carter's show "Playin' on the Tracks - LIVE!"

In my last update, I shared a lot of the positives about our process and the response to the work that we have done so far. Today I find myself as one of those "struggling artists." Our vision is just as strong as it ever has been for this project, but we are at a turning point.

To finish this work, we need to reach our funding goal. If you have been waiting to give, now is the time. Every gift counts, and there's evidence that most projects like ours are funded by small donations as much as big ones.

If you have given already, thank you again. If you can share our goal with someone, please do that today.

We promise to keep you posted on our progress, and thank you for continuing to support this dream.

The editing process is in full swing for "Playin' on the Tracks-LIVE!" I just watched one of the segments and I got kind of choked up. The response from the video trailer has been so encouraging. One industry insider wrote, and I quote:

“Playing on the Tracks” is beyond impressive. What you guys have done and continue to do, gives me hope. Hope that in this business, when the normal “major machine” vehicles can’t offer anything, it still doesn’t get in the way of true talent. Talent
the world needs to be exposed too..."

Thanks to all who have donated. In a time when Artists are struggling, I find myself overwhelmed by people who have true Patron's Hearts. You are deeply appreciated. Please take a minute & watch the video. Feel free to share! Thank you!

A week ago today we were painting sets for "Playin' on the Tracks" I'm sitting here this morning looking at a test edit that was sent from our esteemed Director Julian Chojnacki, & I'm overwhelmed with gratitude. What started out as a simple video is turning into a work of art and I am both humbled & sobered by the implications and possibilities.

It's not too late to contribute to this project. In fact, that's the beauty of gofundme. They allow you to continue to reach your goal. So please if you haven't yet, would you consider giving toward the completion of this project?
Thank you!
