DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
- I feel like Nashville and Music Row are a world away. I write good songs, but I can’t seem to “crack the code” of Music Row.
- What do I REALLY have to do to get a cut or a publishing deal?
- I have a few questions that nobody can seem to answer. I need to talk to somebody actually IN the music business.
If you keep on guessing how to succeed, you’ll probably keep getting the same results you’re getting now: taking too much time figuring out the truth on your own while spending too much money recording songs that will probably never get cut.
Trying to get a hit without understanding the music business is like throwing darts in the dark and trying to hit a bullseye.
You can spend your time and money filling the air with darts and hoping to get lucky... or you can let Songwriting Pro and Frettie pull back the curtain and let some light in. Learning how Music Row works- getting an insider’s perspective- will put you in a much better position to get cuts or a publishing deal.
WHAT IS "KNOW THE ROW?"
In this exclusive online event, I invite a music industry friend of mine to come in and answer YOUR questions. We start off with a short interview full of insider information that will help you on your songwriting journey. Then we open it up to your questions.
August 14, 2018. 7pm to 8pm CENTRAL time zone - Scot Sherrod
August 16, 2018. 7pm to 8pm CENTRAL time zone - Aaron Goodvin
It's online, so you can join us from anywhere in the world! (details below)
WHO IS SCOT SHERROD?
As vice president and general manager of Rare Spark Media, Sherrod oversees and directs all aspects of the company, in addition to signing and developing musical talent for the entertainment industry.
Sherrod moved to Nashville in 1996 and joined Muy Bueno Music Group as catalogue and creative manager, where he managed and pitched the entire catalogue and was involved in attaining such cuts as George Strait’s No. 1 single “Write This Down” and title track, “One Step At A Time.”
In 1998, he was tapped as catalogue manager for Major Bob Music, Inc. and worked his way up to senior creative director, supervising all creative aspects of the company. Some of the highest-grossing songs recorded during Sherrod’s tenure at Major Bob Music include Kenny Chesney’s “I Lost It” and “There Goes My Life,” the Dixie Chicks’ “A Home,” Rascal Flatts’ “I Melt,” “Fast Cars and Freedom,” “Take Me There,” and “He Ain’t The Leaving Kind;” Carrie Underwood’s “Life Goes On,” and Montgomery Gentry’s “Some People Change.” Sherrod was also instrumental in pitching the history-making song, “More Than A Memory” (Curb Music Publishing), to Garth Brooks while at Major Bob.
On the sync side, Sherrod has collaborated on, represented or created music for Columbia Pictures’ Zombieland and Bounty Hunter theatrical trailers, Century Fox’s Knight and Day theatrical trailer, Paramount Pictures’ The Last Airbender television/internet trailer, a motion picture placement in Warner Brothers Pictures’ Green Lantern, and a national Volvo spot, among others.
So, yes, YOU want to hang out with Scot and get his advice on the music business.
WHO IS AARON GOODVIN?
If this is the first you’ve heard about Aaron Goodvin, then you haven’t been paying attention to country music lately. Though he first made a name on the scene as a songwriter, placing tracks with Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell, among others, it’s been as a solo artist that Aaron has made the most noise recently.
His debut single, “Knock On Wood,” was a Top 40 hit at Country radio in Canada and opened the door for the Top 10 follow up smash hits “Woman In Love” and “Lonely Drum.” He's also currently nominated for a handful of Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMAs).
Goodvin is currently signed as a songwriter with US-based Reviver Records, home to hit artists such as LoCash and David Lee Murphy. Stay tuned for more news regarding Aaron and Reviver!
So, yes, YOU want to hang out with Scot and Aaron and get their advice on the music business.
