Country Music Show Secures International Talent
Tennessee’s newest country music festival – HillbilliesVille Country FEST – has announced the signing of world-class talent T Jae Christian.
HillbilliesVille Country FEST founder Kevin Kiepe said securing great talent was the key to his plan to create the world’s number one country music destination.
“T Jae is another one of the amazingly talented Wilson County residents with an incredible traditional country music story that was virtually untold until now," he said.
“He will help us bring the professionalism that was once needed in the recording studio into the live streaming studio.”
“It is not just about plugging in and playing, it is about creating first class entertainment experiences that leave fans gasping and wanting more."
HillbilliesVille Country FEST 2012 will be Tennessee’s most authentic celebration of traditional country music, with dozens of emerging artists performing on five “front-porch”
The event runs from June 7-10 at Fiddler’s Grove on the Wilson Country Fairgrounds in Lebanon. Tickets are already on sale and available from the online box office at http://www.hillbilliesville.com/
T Jae Christian said he was delighted to be involved in such an exciting new project for Tennessee, bringing country fans closer to the music than ever before.
“I was very fortunate to meet and be accepted by Owen Bradley as a song writer and then to have him let me sit in on the major artists’ recording sessions,’’ T Jae said.
“I cannot tell you how much I learned – let’s just say it was everything I know about producing a good country project, choosing the right songs for the artist, and how to get the best possible performance on every song we record.
“It only takes one word to describe Owen Bradley, and that’s genius! He was the best."
T Jae has written songs recorded by many artists, including Nat Stacey, Charlie Pride, Roy Orbison, Jeanie Pruett and T Graham Brown. He will soon release his latest album, I Wish I Was Home, with the first single He’s Already Made It.
“The truth is T Jae has already made it!’’ Mr Kiepe said. “He is a country music star in Europe who even attracted 7,000 fans to his concert in Copenhagen."
“You just have to listen to anything T Jae is producing to realise he is a sensational writer, producer and artist."
T Jae is also the manager and producer of the HillbilliesVille Country FEST headline artist – 13-year-old Wilson County High School Student Lacy J Syler.
Only 2,000 tickets will be available for each day of Country FEST. Single day tickets will cost $15 and event passes allowing access on all four days will cost just $29.
Discount tickets for seniors, veterans and college students with photo ID will be priced at $10 for one day and event passes at $19.
