Jeremy Parsons (PCG Nashville Records) who is the true essence and mirror image of traditional Americana country music, will realize his ambition and solidify his reputation as a torchbearer for the golden age of the Grand Ole Opry with the unveiling of his record, DOGGONDEST FEELIN’.
The album’s eleven tracks showcase Parsons’ affection for country trailblazers, his infectious sense of humor, and extraordinary talents as a song craftsman. Described as an upbeat Hank Sr., Parsons infuses his songs with wit and levity. A young man with an old soul, 22-year old “boy next door” has a direct-connect with ghosts of country past and the natural knack to echo the sounds of some of the “Who’s Who” in country music, greats like Hank Williams, Faron Young, Johnny Horton and George Strait.
By way of introduction, and far and away from the realm of a traditional CD release campaign, Parsons is relying first and foremost on the buying public rather than music critics. Teaming with PCG Nashville Records, Parsons launched an innovative television advertising campaign to promote his new album. The ad campaign is a unique marketing strategy for the singer-songwriter who will appeal to his self-styled Hank Williams demographic.
Decked out in his bedazzled blazer (a one-of-a-kind design by Manuel), Jeremy shares the spot with Little Jimmy Dickens who affirmed, “Jeremy Parsons IS traditional country music.”
The ads are currently airing nationally on cable channel RFD-TV (Rural Free Delivery Television). The most appropriate outlet to introduce Parsons; RFD-TV’s demographic has proven to be a "bulls-eye" target resulting in album sales and opening the door to a new, broader audience for Parsons.
"Jeremy Parsons is a natural-born stylist and a credit to the art-form; his knowledge of country music facts and history alone is unrivaled. Jeremy knows the heritage of American music,” said producer, Bernard Porter. “I really think his sound is exactly what country music needs right now. Pop country is flourishing and outlaw country is resurrected; Jeremy performs, writes and records his calling – he bleeds traditional country!”
Entrenched in the heart and soul of classic country, Parsons’ DOGGONDEST FEELIN’ (produced by Bernard Porter/Porter-Gentry Productions) revives musical history with song titles like “The Night Hank Williams Died,” “When My Old Man Was Young,” “I Could Be Your Pick Me Up” and “Since My Baby Left Me.”
A storyteller and story keeper, Jeremy Parsons cultivated his love of the legends by collecting vinyl and writing tunes steeped in American roots and traditional sound. By the time he was in is early 20’s the San Antonio-born Parsons had accomplished feats most newcomers only dream of. Jeremy has more that 750 songs in his catalog, he’s opened for George Jones, is a frequent backstage guest at the Grand Ole Opry, befriended Little Jimmy Dickens and Jean Shepard and The Grascals, champions in bluegrass, cut the Parsons-penned “Out Comes The Sun.”
“While others are hungering for a record deal, I will be carrying my torch right to the Grand Ole Opry stage. It’s exactly what I want to do and where I want to be and if folks say I’m ‘too country,’ I’ll feel like I’ve accomplished what I set out to do,” Parsons said in closing.
DOGGONDEST FEELIN’ is available now through RFD-TV, Parsons’ website and via all major digital outlets. The music video DOGGONDEST FEELIN’ (produced by Bluehawk Productions) will premiere on television screens across the country in April.
