WHAT A FIRST WEEK WE HAD!!!
Howdy Y'all! First of all I want to thank everybody for all of your support by listening to, subscribing, and sharing my music. THANK YOU!!!!! It really means a lot to me that y'all like the music that I write and take the time out of yer day to listen. As I said before, the only reason why this works is because of Y-O-U ;) I also couldn't do this without the help of everyone on our team. Sam Cohen on telecaster and pedal steel, Dan Scott on drums, John Miller on Bass and that sweet mandolin part on "I'll be around", and Aaron Michael Orth on acoustic guitar. I also need to thank Joe Podlesny of Avocet Recording for engineering the fat tracks that Cooper Anderson of Intheboxstudios.com mixed down to the songs y'all have been listening to. I'm blessed with some truly amazingly talented friends.
Okay, this is what happened this past week. My debut on N1M was pretty incredible. I didn't expect any of this to happen when I signed up, but Y'ALL REALLY MADE IT HAPPEN! I was ranked No.1 in the country category for Austin, Texas all of my first week as the HotShot New Artist! Yeehaah!!! And I'm still ranked No.2 in Austin this week without even putting a whole hell of a lot of effort into it. "Vida" debuted at No.1 in Austin, No.42 Nationally/Globally. "One More Minute" Was in the top 50 in Texas and is still No. 66 Globally. This means that all of my songs are in the top 100. Two of them are in the Top 50 Globally! I was stunned and amazed by your response to my music. I'll try by working harder to get more of my unrecorded music out faster. I have limited resources, but I know that I can find ways to do better. Also, I'm now on Reverb Nation. You can find me just by looking or Rikki Todd on that site. Also, my rikkitodd dot com site is moving over to Reverb Nation and will be hosted there. You can buy downloads there and on Google Play. However, it's better for me if you buy them on the rikkitodd dot com site because google takes $2.00 off of the top of each sale. You get the picture ;)
Well, that's what's going on. And it's A LOT! I'm so happy that y'all like my music :) I know that you're taking time out of your busy day to listen to me and that means the world to me. I hope to be able to get out on the road and play some shows in the near future. I want to get out and meet ALL Y'ALL!. So, please tell your friends to subscribe so I can email details about the record and upcoming tour dates when we announce them. In the mean time, take care, have fun, and happy trails to you :)
