We believe the start of any great music career is educating yourself, whether it be as an artist, a musician, an industry professional or even a blogger. You need to hear the honest truth from people that know what they're talking about. That's why we're giving you a chance to win a copy of a fantastic book on the industry from one of the best, Dave Rose. Dave is the co-founder and co-owner of Deep South Entertainment, a record label, artist management, music publishing, merchandising, and concert event production company, with offices in Raleigh, N.C., and Nashville, TN. He is also the business manager of Parmalee, one of the managers of Jason Michael Carroll, and he manages rock bands such as Stryper. For more background on Dave, check out this link - http://www.celebrityaccess.com/news/profile.html?id=319. Dave is not only a kick ass industry professional, he's also a great guy, very down to earth and always willing to lend a hand not only to artists but to anyone interested in learning about the business. He's very well respected, has been a huge positive influence with Lovin' Lyrics and we think the world of him and value his opinion on everything we do. We want to share some of his knowledge with you.
His new book, "Everything I Know About the Music Business I Learned from My Cousin Rick" is an honest, humble look at the industry and is a great read for anyone. His first printing sold out and they've had to go into a second printing! I have a copy from that second printing for one lucky winner.
All you have to do to enter is follow Dave on Twitter at @DaveRose9811 and tweet the following "Hey @LovinLyrics! I Want to Learn About Music from @DaveRose9811 #cousinrick". We'll pick one winner at random this Friday!
