What’s New in 2013!
Well hello y’all!
First -- a great big bear hug goes to all of you that have been by my side. Upholding my efforts to make the best country music I can.
Thanks to your generous support, I have some good news to share!I am putting together the team in Nashville for a new music project:
“Planet Country”I am also fortunate that Rich Fagan has signed on as principal writer – and he’s no stranger to the business! He has had six top ten singles and 18 charted singles on the Billboard Country charts, and his songs have been recorded by Neil Diamond, George Strait, John Michael Montgomery, Clay Walker, Ricochet, Hank Williams, Jr., George Jones, Shania Twain, Patty Loveless, Collin Raye, Shenandoah, The Crickets, Jason & the Scorchers,The Blues Brothers Band and many others. In 1979 his song "The Good Lord Loves You" was recorded by Neil Diamond and released on the September Morn album. The song charted in the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 67 in April 1980.Fagan accomplished nine Billboard Country chart singles in the 1990s including two of John Michael Montgomery's number one singles: Be My Baby Tonight and Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident). Fagan had three additional songs on the Billboard Country charts in the 2000s, including the song "Why Can't We All Just Get a Long Neck?" that appears on the Hank Williams, Jr. album, I'm One of You. Song writers Adam Fears and Larry Migliore will round out the production team, so expect to hear some upbeat country music on this album along with traditional soulful ballads. Friends, I’m counting on this fantastic team to get me on the radio and onto the charts, where listeners can’t help but notice will notice that someone is still pumping out good traditional country music – you know, the kind with lyrics that pull the heartstrings and sounds that come from the soul. Meanwhile, my debut album has enjoyed an enthusiast from the radio community – and they ain’t heard nothn’ yet! I’m also busy booking shows for the 2013 season – so sometime this year, I’ll see you “on the road again.” Watch for me! John There’s a magic that comes with being aware you’re “onto something” while you’re onto it. It fills you with a strange sense of purpose that seems to invigorate the project and deepen the vision, even when you feel like all you’ve got is fireflies to follow, just the hint of heat and light out ahead, teasing you on, leading you somewhere you can barely see in the distance, as if towards an ancient city shrouded in fog, just waiting for you to come discover it.
