The recent events in Doug Seeger’s life is like a fairytale. A random meeting on the streets of Nashville led to an over night success in Sweden.
Last year in September Swedish country star Jill Johnson taped six tv shows in Nashville. In the last episod Jill and her guest Magnus Carlsson more or less by accident came across a street musician called Doug Seegers on Lower Broadway, playing his song »Going Down To The River«. The song and Doug’s performance knocked them out and a few days later they took him to the Carter Cabin Studio to record it. The TV show was aired in March 2014 and the public response was overwhelming.
Early April Doug Seegers will record his first album in Nashville with Will Kimbrough producing. And Doug will spend all summer in Scandinavia playing festivals and high profile gigs.
Doug Seegers played in a band in Austin with Mr Americana himself, Buddy Miller, in the eighties, but since then his life has had it’s ups and downs. More downs than ups to be honest. The last 10 years or so he’s been homeless, living on the streets of Nashville, playing his songs on the tourist strips to get enough money to survive. And writing songs all the time. Since about a year Doug’s been sober and clean and recently he got himself a small apartment.
