It’s been quite some time since my career started and I released my first studio album. This crazy thing we call the “music industry” has changed A LOT since 1995 – so much so that sometimes, it’s hard to keep up! The great part about these changes is how much technology has opened up the possibilities and broken down a lot of the previous barriers this industry used to have, especially in the way artists can make and release new music. As I’ve been thinking through the best way get my next record into the hands of my favorite Hat Brats, I’ve found an exciting solution to really let YOU be a part of the recording process with me (this is where PledgeMusic comes in.)
Together, (You, Me, & PledgeMusic) we’re going to revolutionize the way we make my next studio album. Releasing a record this way allows me to have a closer connection with you guys throughout the entire recording process, AND allows me to directly bring you all kinds of unique and personal experiences that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to provide through a traditional record release. After all, YOU are the reason I’m still making music and touring every year, and I can’t think of a better group of people to join forces with to make this new record than the FANS!
Through this campaign, I hope to say a huge THANK YOU to those of you who’ve supported me throughout my career, and I am thrilled to be able to have you as my partners on this project. By pledging on any of the exclusives listed to the right, you will get access to the new album prior to the street release date along with LOTS of other really cool items that we’ve pulled together just for you!
Throughout the coming months, I will be posting updates so you can see where I am in the recording process – everything from songwriting appointments, time in the studio, photo shoots, and more! I want YOU to know we’re doing this one together!
This is uncharted territory for me, and probably some of you as well, but sometimes the best ideas are ones that you just trust your gut (and your fans) and go for it. It will be a unique experience for all of us, but most of all I hope you get to see how your support can make a big impact and allows me to continue doing what I love to do day in and day out.
I’m ready if you are – let’s rock!
Thanks so much everybody,
