THANK YOU for taking the time to read this and learn more about my (so far unnamed) upcoming recording.  I have had the privilege of writing, recording and performing original music for 15 years now.  It is time to record again with the help of co-writers and producers AJ Clark and Cleve Clark.  In 2010 we released "Good To Be Me" featuring some of Nashville's finest involved in every aspect of that project.  This project will be no less in quality.  We are going back at it again and we aren't going to start holding back now. 

First, listen to a few sample from "Good To Be Me". 

Now that you have heard some of my music...here is what others are saying about it. 

"Jim Anthony has really tapped into a college-type of music that is going to appeal to everyone. His soulful voice is identifiable and he sings about issues that everyone can relate to. Keep an eye out for Jim Anthony – he could be a force to be reckoned with in several different musical formats."

- Power Source Music Magazine

"Jim Anthony has created a terrific album with "Good To Be Me". In fact, any one of the first three songs on the album could be a Number One album on the Texas country chart and all three should be considered on mainstream country and Red Dirt radio playlists. There's nothing precocious or audacious about Jim Anthony, and that's part of the charm of this gifted artist."

- Country Chart Magazine

"Jim Anthony's latest album, 'Good To Be Me', is a proof that there are great country singers who don't have major record deals and Country Music Awards. Jim's new project offers 10 songs of substance and good old fashioned honesty."

- I Am Entertainment Magazine

Here is the breakdown of the project costs. The recording costs (including producers, engineers, musicians, mixing and mastering) are $4,000.  These are some of Nashville's finest!

Art work and CD design is $300.  CD Duplication varies on the demand and how many CD's I need to order out of the gates.  To get things rolling the estimated $2500.  Travel costs (transportation, meals and lodging) $700. 

If you are doing the math you are realizing that so far the financial needs add up to more than the amount I have set to raise here.  The reason is simply because if I do not raise 100% of the goal I don't receive one dime of the pledges.  My hope is that together we will raise 115%, 150% or more of the goal here.  That being said, no matter how much is raised (and just like my 5 previous recordings) it will get done.  I'm on my way... 

As always I GREATLY appreciate your ongoing support!  God bless.

    I am ditching the drums...literally and figuratively! This recording promises to be full in an acoustic "less is more" kind of way. So out with the drums and in with the guitar, mandolin, fiddle and anything else with strings! So...The 5-Piece PDP FS drum set is going! The kit includes the kick pedal, snare stand, hi-hat stand, ride stand and crash stand. All of the stands are double braced. This is not just a beginner kit. It was purchased for our rehearsal space less than 90 days ago and is in GREAT condition. The shells all have a beautiful natural to charcoal fade finish. Of course, this package also includes a singed and personalized CD and a signed and personalized 11 X 17 full color poster. I will personally deliver them within 100 miles of Minneapolis. Who knows...maybe bring my guitar to play a few songs too!
