44 Backers! 4 Days to Go!

These last few days are gonna be fun!  I really think we can make this goal!

Last night was fun playing live on the internets ;)  Hope everyone enjoyed it.

A big thanks to all those who have got us this far.  If you have been wanting to make a pledge now is the time!

Please remember a pledge is NOT a donation.  You get a REWARD for your pledge.  Which is typically a CD, custom printed CD or a digital copy of the album when it's finished.  But there are other rewards too so go check them out!

Great day for vocals! Don't like computers? Send me a check!

Wanted to share with everyone that today has been an AWESOME day for vocals!  I record vocals at my house so thankfully this doesn't cost me anything but time. :)
Very excited about the tunes I'm working on and I seriously can't wait to share them with everyone.  Still have lots of work to do and this is why I'm doing a Kickstarter campaign.
Thanks to those who have "backed" my project. It means a lot.  I'm gonna ask that if you can please share this link on your favorite social network.
This will take folks directly to my Kickstarter page where they can watch my video, listen to music and read these updates. Oh ya... AND MAKE A PLEDGE!
Also if you run into folks who say "I'd back HTD's project but I'm not very computer literate."  1) Call Honky Tonk Dave at 65 RING DAVE -- 657 464 3283 -- and leave a message about how they would like to help. 2) Several friends have asked to send a check directly to me.  This is fine too.  
Honky Tonk Dave Box 1 Kingston Springs TN 37082
REMINDER!  We will broadcast live this coming Tuesday night from 8-9pm.  This will again be an opportunity to let people know about my Kickstarter campaign so please send folks to 
I have been overwhelmed by all the support so far. It means a lot but we do have a ways to go with a little more than a week left. No pledge is too small or too large ;)

Kickstarter Update #1 Lot's of exciting news!

Go here today and learn more about Honky Tonk Dave's kickstarter and make a pledge!
Wanted to give everyone an update on my Kickstarter campaign. It’s been a week since we started and I wanted to thank the 18 backers that have jumped on board. Truly you guys are making this happen. And don’t forget this campaign ends on April 27th which is just a couple weeks away.
I was hoping start work on vocals this week but the ‘ole tree pollen got the best of me. But a trip to the doc and some good drugs are doing the trick. So this next week I hope to cut most of the lead vocals for the project.
Also I have found someone to do my background vocals for the project. The harmonies on this project are going to be so much fun.
This leads in to my next topic… I really do need your help to fund this project. We have couple tracks that are not quite done and typically the most expensive part of the process is mixing and mastering.
Update on Song From Yesterday… So my first single from this new project has been played on radio stations in Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Ohio and over 700 plays on SoundCloud!
And finally I want to tell you that we are going to have an online pledge party this coming Tuesday night. Live from the Honky Tonk Dave’s bedroom… I mean living room. Thank you for being a part of the Honky Tonk Dave story to help me produce new original music in the classic country Honky tonk sounds of the 50’s and 60’s.

Help Honky Tonk Dave Finish His New Record

Howdy! My name is Honky Tonk Dave and if ya couldn’t tell already I’m on a mission to share the sounds of Honky Tonk music! I need your help to complete my record of 10 songs and get the word out that Honky Tonk Dave is ready to go!
Honky Tonk Dave exists for the preservation of the country music of our forefathers and mothers. There seems to be no room for NEW classic country sounds. I'm writing and singing NEW original music in the honky-tonk style.  I want to join up with as many folks like you who want to preserve the heritage of great American country music.
Don't know what Kickstarter is? It's a new way to fund creative projects, and it's really simple in how it works. You help Ol' Honky Tonk with a pledge that's in your comfort range, and I send you a “reward” that matches with your level of generosity. And I thank you now for your support.
A little side note: The funds won't come out of your bank account/credit card until April 27...and that’s only if I reach my goal of $3500. If I do not reach my goal, I do not receive any funds. It's ALL or nothing. 
I believe in what we’re doing here. Let's do this thang!
Don’t ever forget - “There’s nothing wrong with a song from yesterday.”
