After years of struggling with drug and alcohol abuse, the then 62-year-old homeless Nashville street musician Doug Seegers’ life changed overnight. A hit song catapulted him to superstar status in Sweden and since then he's played hundreds of sold out shows. Doug’s two best selling albums of original songs have received Gold and Platinum music awards in Sweden. And in the spring of 2018, Doug Seegers recorded his first international album in Los Angeles with master producer Joe Henry - the result is the much-anticipated emotional eleven-song album A Story I Got toTell. Encompassing country and blues, gospel, soul and rock, it’s a fluid and eloquent mix that demonstrates just how accomplished Seegers is as an artist; though as the title suggests, his story has not all been plain sailing.
Though Doug Seegers dreamed of a career in the music industry and grew up on the hard-country sounds of Hank Williams, the heart-first-country-rock of Gram Parsons, the soul-stirring love longs of Emmylou Harris, and the classically American sounds of Johnny Cash, he never imagined his road to stardom would take him from a life of drug-addiction on the streets of New York City to a food pantry in Nashville where everything would change on one extraordinary afternoon.
