On June 23rd 2017, I met with a producer in Nashville and played him some of my original songs. This is a guy who is really "Plugged in" in Nashville. Also, It's one of those Magical things that I was even connected with this guy because it just so happens that he is from Ashdown Arkansas and he used to play guitar with my dad back in the day at the "Pines".
Now he owns a big Music Production company in Nashville, TN. He just produced Dolly Pardon's most recent album.
After I played him my songs, he told me that I have all of the factors that a person needs to get signed to a major record label. He looked at me curiously and said that I have"something special". He wants me to move to town, write some more songs with some writers in town, and then record my stuff at his studio. At which point, he will start shopping me around to Sony and other major record labels.
So, I've decided to follow his advice and move to Nashville to chase my dreams!
I am trying to get out there as soon as I can to reach my goal of getting signed within a year from now!
The only thing is, Nashville is an expensive place to rent apartments in. The reason being is that the stats show that around 100 people move there a day. In the last 2 years, the average cost of rent has almost doubled.
I need as much help as I can get from all of you to make these dreams of mine come true! My goal is to raise $10,000 by the end of July and get to making music!!!
I have no doubt that when I get my name out there, it will just be a matter of time before I get signed and the rest will be history!
I love you all and thanks in advance for all of your help!!!
