Guest Biography: 

My name is Dan Hartley! I live in Bay Minette, Alabama! I am writing you today to offer you an Opportunity to own a piece of Nashville. I have been writing songs for twenty years … but it was not up until recently I decided to try to get my songs into the Nashville market.

I am going to make this short! I contacted Gary Carter Studios  who has played with the best in Nashville who did an incredible job on the TWO songs I sent! Next … I contacted a fourteen year  pro SONG PLUGGER – Chris Keaton to represent my songs!

The Selecting Process: When an artist is getting ready to produce a new album, his producer will begin to listen to about 1000 songs to narrow it down to 300 songs then 100 songs and finally 15 songs to put on the album. The entire process takes place over five to nine months!

What can be made from a song? Somewhere from $30,000 to $300,000 as a writer! If your song makes it to the radio … you have hit the big times! Song ROYALTY’S can go on for years!

Like “GRANMA GOT RUN OVER BY A RAINDEER” the writer makes about $50,000 to $100,000 per year around Christmas for the last twelve years! The Gambler by Kenny Rodgers made the writer over 2 million … it made it to a movie!

I sent my two songs off in AUGUST – 2013 … to see if I could get thru the door! I have SIX ARTIST as of this writing including CORBIN EASTON – GARY ALLEN TO name a few! Two artists have kept my songs for five months … some two months …. And some just started! Just to get in the mix was a hundred thousand to one chance … and I have beaten those odds! I believe both songs will land on an album!

WHY I AM WRITING THIS? I have been laid off work for 5 months! Running out of time and money to pay bills! I have a few things working but they may take a little more time to develop! I have written two more great songs that I believe will make the cut! It takes money to demo and pay a plugger like CHRIS KEATON to get you in the door! So with that in mind …. For $5000 … I am offering 10% ROYALTY SHARE plus the upfront money of $5000 back first on the first song to make a cut! With this money I will be able to get two more in the mix over the next six months! There are NO GUARANTEEDS that any song will make the cut! But with the response on the first TWO SONGS …. It is a matter of time.
