From Legend Group Records: John’s Debut Single Featured On CDX Volume 607!

John_siteSingleslider_V2

John Spicer’s debut single, “Pretty Good At Lovin’ You,” is featured alongside tracks from Darius Rucker, Toby Keith, and Alan Jackson.

CDX has been providing new country music single releases to radio stations around the globe since 1991.

“Pretty Good At Lovin’ You” will now be going out to just over 1700 U.S. radio stations, 350 international outlets, and all major internet radio stations!

Country music industry insider Jim Della Croce calls “Pretty Good At Lovin’ You” the “ass-kicking icebreaker single” of John’s debut album, a track that will let the world know about John’s fresh sound. This track will give people a little glimpse of the record and insight into John as a singer, a songwriter, and a great guitar player.

“It’s a daring single to release because it’s a little jazzy/bluesy in places,” said Houston Curtis. “This whole record is daring, because it takes you on such a journey.”

“After tracking 27 songs at Capitol Studios’ famed Studio A, and doing all the finishing and mixing at The Mothership Studios, we found that choosing which single would introduce John Spicer to the world wasn’t an easy task!” Curtis continued.

“John is a very special artist, and producer Tom Fletcher, along with John and our team, have put together a very special record. Ultimately,  we decided Pretty Good At Lovin’ You was a great way to kick off the John Spicer journey both musically and lyrically, and we’re excited to see how country music fans react.”

High Praise

Among those fans are many industry insiders, including the legendary Merle Haggard, who is about to be named Billboard’s Artist of the Century, who had many wonderful things to say about John Spicer, including: “He may be what we’ve all been looking for.”

The Legendary former president of Atlantic Records, responsible for the careers of such artists as Led Zeppelin, ACDC, ABBA, Genesis, Foreigner and Michael Jackson to name a few, had this to say about John Spicer:

“I think most people would agree that I’ve maintained a pretty good track record for picking winners in my career… and I can honestly say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that John Spicer has to be one of the most most promising artists to come along in decades.  His prolific songwriting, golden voice, and incredible musicianship is everything a star is made of and more.”

Multi-platinum record producer/engineer Tom Fletcher was recently quoted saying, “John Spicer is the artist I’ve been searching for my entire career to produce. An artist of this caliber only comes along once every 20 to 30 years if you are lucky. Having the faith of both John and the label has been the greatest honor of my career.

When asked what he thinks about all of this, artist John Spicer simply replied, “I’m just happy to be here and thank God  every day for surrounding me with people who believe in me and are giving me the opportunity to share my music with the world.”

Congratulations to our rising country star!

Amazing Times With Merle Haggard

John Spicer And Merle Haggard

John recently had the pleasure of spending some time with iconic country music legend Merle Haggard.

John was invited to meet Merle at his studio, Hag Studios, where they recorded the last song for John’s forthcoming debut album. As if recording a song in the great Merle Haggard’s studio wasn’t enough of an amazing experience, John Spicer said his dream came true when he had the opportunity to play the first song he learned to play on guitar with the very man who wrote it and sang it professionally.

John mentioned, “He let me play the guitar that he wrote it on to boot. He told stories and gave advice and was the absolute sweetest soul I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet. [It] will go down in history for me as the greatest day of my life. I never dreamed that I would get a chance to play and sing with Merle Haggard.”

Make sure to stay tuned to his website and social media for videos of John and Merle’s jam session.

You can now view John’s official Fender artist page HERE!

Legend Group Records is pleased to announce that our country singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Spicer now has an official artist page on Fender.com!

John was formally endorsed by the world’s leading maker of guitars and musical instruments in January of this year – but his relationship with Fender began when his fingers first hit the strings.

John has been playing Fenders for as long as he’s been playing music, and he couldn’t be happier to be an official representative of the brand – and to claim his spot on the Fender website beside names like Jim Adkins and John Mayer!

“I am truly honored to be recognized as an official Fender Artist,” said John. “This is a dream come true for me.”

Legend Group Records President Houston Curtis is equally thrilled with the growing relationship between John and Fender.

“We would like to thank Bill Cummiskey, Matt Ferguson, Chrissy Mauck, Matthew Farrar, and the entire Fender team for believing in John and showing such continued support throughout the making of his first album!” he said.

John owns a total of 10 Fender guitars, as well as one dobro and a banjo. He has added six Fender instruments to his collection since January – but he’s just getting started! Check out his artist page on fender.com/artists for a list of his favorite Fender gear.
