Kickstarter! Everyone's doing it!
Kickstarter is a company where creative people (and sometimes not so creative people) can ask regular folks for money to help them fund a project. The person sets a goal and if they don't reach their goal then no money changes hands.
Kickstarter was recently in the news when "Scrubs" actor Zach Braff successfully raised $2.6 million to film a sequal to his movie "Garden State."
Now country music is starting to figure out that the fund-raising site might work for them too. On Thursday, Tracy Lawrence officially launched a Kickstarer campaign to try and raise at least $50,000 to record his next album, "Headlights, Taillights and Radios."
