The Ghost Town Troubadours are four singer/songwriters from different musical styles and backgrounds who came together to get to the bottom of something. They set out to find America and to bring awareness to the current state of the American songwriter.
Aaron Benward, Danny Myrick, Travis Howard and Regie Hamm, all successful in their own right, came together to jump in a van and strike out for parts unknown, with nothing but 3 guitars, a keyboard and SONGS.
They ventured into an odyssey that would take them from Nashville to Florida, to Louisiana and Texas, through the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona and on to the California coast. Setting up gigs as they went, playing at wineries, gun ranges, open air shopping areas and night clubs, the Ghost Town Troubadours made the trek from Nashville to Los Angeles in thirteen days, doing 11 shows.
Throughout the journey, the guys learned, in real time, about new court rulings that affect the songwriting business during the day. Then, at night, they poured their hearts at every show to inspire people to buy enough hats and t-shirts to get them to the next town.
They finished the tour at the prestigious YouTube headquarters, in Los Angeles, where they became the first act to be featured on YouTube’s new live music series.
Selling out to the craft and laying it all on the line for the art. THAT’S what a Ghost Town Troubadour is. And these guys, are the originals.
The documentary called "Ghost Town Troubadours," that was filmed along this arduous journey, is forthcoming. It will not only feature the four unlikely heroes on their uncertain journey west, but many luminaries and super stars of the music business and will bring to light the current state of media, how we make it, how we consume it, how we pay for it...and who's getting left behind.
