Peek Behind the Scenes with a Concert Tour Manager

I recently sat down with tour manager Ronnie Palmer to talk about what happens when the recording is all done and it’s time to hit the road.

Artists are not earning as much money from CD sales as they were in previous decades. Too many music lovers are stealing money from artists, songwriters, publishers, and record labels by not purchasing their music, and it has hurt the music industry more than people can imagine.

It’s  become necessary for artists to make their money on the road performing as much as possible. I learned a lot about the responsibilities of an effective tour manager by talking with Ronny Palmer.

Check out the interview and get some valuable tips on the importance of having a dependable tour manager to make your shows run smoothly!

The song is in honor of all our men and women from around the country who sacrifice their lives on a daily basis, to protect and defend our great United States of America.

Keep America Alive

Our country depends on YOUR vote. We need to protect and uphold our Constitution, our liberty, rights, freedoms, to Keep GOD as the center of our lives, to keep our country strong and independent, and uphold our values! My good friend Cari Lynn York wrote this powerful new song with co-writers Jennifer Leslie Ferguson and Karen Rae Mitchell called KEEP AMERICA ALIVE. Cari Lynn recorded it last week. I hope you enjoy it! And let’s each do our part to keep America alive!
