About

(Did you watch the video above all the way through and see the 2C4N bloopers at the end?)  :)

What is the Kickstarter Project?

Howdy...This is Joel & LeAnne of 2Country4Nashville...We are SO excited! Our friends, family, and fans have been asking us when we were going to have a CD for them to buy...but we haven't had the money to have a CD recorded and we've never had the right opportunity. But some of our friends and fans decided that we needed that opportunity. So they've encouraged us to let our fans help us finance our first CD and let our fans have a part in making this dream come true!  This KickStarter Program will allow our fans, family & friends the chance to be directly involved in our music career & be a REAL part of 2Country4Nashville!!


How does Kickstarter work?

You as a backer, would register here on KickStarter and then click on the "Back This Project" box on this page.  You'll be asked to supply your credit card info and your pledge amount.  Your pledge will then be added to our running total.  If & when we meet our "goal" amount in the allotted time, then & only then will the amount you pledged be charged to your credit card.  If we should fail to meet our goal---No Money will be Charged.  Any amount is greatly appreciated...but we have set some rewards to different pledge amounts...including FREE copies of the CD, signed photos, T-shirts, FREE Private Concerts & even a FREE autographed guitar!!  We understand that there are people working multiple 40+ hour jobs a week to provide for their families, so we know that not everyone could offer any assistance...and that is completely okay! But if you CAN help...We really appreciate any pledge amount you can make...even if it's just a $1.00...every dollar counts!!

Are you Technology Challenged?

We understand!! If you'd prefer to support us without going through your computer or using a credit card, we've provided our mailing address below for direct communication. We're just THANKFUL for your support!!


What are the Funds for?

To do a real 1st class album project is upwards of $15,000 & with marketing & promotion can run closer to $35,000.   We've got a lot of friends willing to help us & we're really trying to keep the costs down as much as possible.  So, why is our goal here set so low?  We've already had some friends to give us over $1000 towards our CD...& we've got some other fundraiser events in the works.  We can always go over the goal we've set, but if we don't meet the goal amount, We don't get anything.  These funds will be used exclusively to pay for studio time, the sound engineer, producer, musicians & mastering.  In addition, it should give us enough to pay for our 1st batch of CD's, complete with cover art, packaging, & printing.  Any funds over our goal will go for marketing & promotion & allow for even better quality.

What are the Details?

At this time, we're planning on recording in the Fry Pharmacy studio in Hermitage, TN.   Fry Pharmacy is a classic analog recording facility that is housed in an old pharmacy from the 1920s that closed in the 1960s.  In 2004, the space reopened as Fry Pharmacy Recording.  We'll be recording "Old School", just like it was done in the "Good Ole Days".  Live to tape---Real Analog Tape!!!  This should allow us to capture some of the "magic" that was on many of those great recordings of the past!!  We want to do a 15 song CD...12 REAL Country Classics & 3 originals including our 2Country4Nashville, Last Cowboy in Wyoming & The Wine Leading the Blind.  We'll sell them for $15 a piece...just $1 per song - What a deal!!!

Thanks: (scroll all the way down to see some more photos and some special thanks as well!)

What a great thrill this is! We are SO hopeful that we can raise the funds and really make this happen! We want to get our music out there to our friends and fans! Thank you for supporting our drive and our dream to keep REAL Traditional Country Music alive!
