Ty Herndon: New Music With a Kick(start)
Ty’s first album since 2006 will be fan funded.
It’s been seven years since Ty Herndon released an album, and that’s way too long for fans of the country star who gained fame with such hits as “What Mattered Most,” “Living in a Moment (You Would Die For)” and “It Must Be Love.”
So Ty is providing fans with an opportunity to be part of his next album project, titled Lies I Told Myself, through a Kickstarter campaign.
“I am trying to complete the recording, manufacturing and distribution of my first country music album in over seven years and I need your help to do it,” he says. “With any album there is so much that goes into it. First, there is writing and picking the songs. Then recording them, then mix and master. Then you need to print them and distribute them. There are marketing costs, video costs, etc., all that go into getting the album to the public. I need help covering these costs and am asking you to help me finish the album and get it out—all the while having really cool unique experiences along the way!”
Cool, unique experiences indeed! Fans can pledge money in varying amounts, each with a specially designated “reward,” ranging from e-mail updates, to autographed CDs, to dinner or horseback riding with Ty himself, to the chance to record a four-song EP with Ty.
Anybody got an extra $10,000 they can lend me?
