First off, I want to send out a huge thank you because if you're reading this, then you're taking the time out of your busy life to see what this is all about and I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart. I have the greatest fans, family and friends any person can ask for and you all mean so much to me!
The past four years have flown by for me, but I've gained so much through the whole experience. As some of you know, I moved the day after I graduated high school to pursue my career further in Nashville, Tennessee and only recently decided to make the move back to Texas about a year ago. The experience and knowledge I gained, was a "once in a lifetime" kind of thing. I had the opportunity to write with so many talented people, meet artists that I have idolized my entire life, learn from some of them first hand, had the honor of playing the Ryman Auditorium and recording a CD with John Carter Cash and the best players in the business. Through these experiences, I feel like I have grown so much in not only my artistry, but as a person first and foremost.
Since I have been back in Texas, I've put together an amazing band, released a brand new single to radio ("Foolish Pride" which has turned so many heads right out of the gate), began touring and playing shows with so many great artists and writing new songs constantly. I'm working with a fantastic team and have so many opportunities that I am ready to take hold of and make the next step in my career. This project is the biggest one! I've got the best musicians in the scene, a fantastic producer, awesome engineer, world renowned Bismeaux Studio (Ray Benson's from Asleep At The Wheel) lined up to record at, Radio stations all across the state waiting to hear the follow up single and with all of this, I am ready and motivated to create a new CD with my BEST, original work yet.
However, this is where you guys come in because I need a little bit of help. Being an Independent artist (meaning, I am not signed to a label/being backed by anyone financially..I do it all on my own) allows me to make decisions about my music that I wouldn't be able to otherwise. The most important thing is it allows me to make REAL music for REAL people like YOU and that is exactly what this project is about. When you're doing it on your own, things such as studio and recording costs, mastering, artwork, pressing and printing, merchandise, promotion and touring costs add up fast! The goal I have set on Kickstarter will cover the expenses of the CD and further donations will be used for touring, merchandise and promotion expenses and simply enough, fuel expenses for traveling to and from shows and radio tours. Also, for the purchase of a new trailer for hauling equipment after ours was stolen last month.....Right now my dream is attainable and not from large contributions from y'all, because if all 1,125 of you that "Like" my Facebook page could donate $10, I could meet and surpass my goal!! Since the beginning, it has been your support...friends, family and fans that has brought me to where I am now and I know with your help, we can create a dream and NEW music we can all be excited to be a part of!
PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD AND GET THIS TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY, TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!
