Pat Green Gets Why Record Label Suits Are So Annoying
There will always be an abundance of stories about an artist, or artists going to battle with their record company (Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Tracy Lawrence, etc...) Then there's Pat Green, who broke it all down in a recent interview, and Pat actually understands that it's all business... and the suits are simply trying to protect their investment.
Pat tells Mywesttexas.com,
It's difficult to make music for a large company because they are spending millions to make you famous. My humble opinion is that if someone is going to spend millions of dollars to make me money, then I'm going to listen to their opinion. You know, like it or not, I'm going to listen to it.
One reason Pat probably feels this way, is that he started selling loads of records once he signed up with a major label. He explains,
I experienced a great deal of success (in Nashville). I totally understand why there are numerous people who come out of record labels and feel like they got spit out. At the same time there are a lot stories like mine where we had some huge hits.
Pat and his buddy Cory Morrow are recording a follow-up to their album "Songs We Wish We'd Written". He's also working on a solo record that will be out on a "larger indie label".
No word on a release date for either album.
Here's one of the tunes from "Songs We Wish We'd Written"...
...And you know how I have a thing for "different versions" of songs... listen to this version of "Wave On Wave"...
