Ty Herndon hopes he has the magic Kickstarter touch


Internet busking is so totally the new subway busking. 

Just so you know, I totally stole that internet busking bit from a reader who coined it recently in regards to Tracy Lawrence's successful Kickstarter campaign. Don't worry, I told him I was going to plagiarize it at the first opportunity. 

Anyhoo, Jo Dee Messina and Tracy Lawrence have both launched successful Kickstarter campaigns and funded their upcoming albums, now a blast from the country star past is hoping that he can strike Kickstarter gold too.

Ty Herndon hasn't had a new country album in seven years, but is hoping that with the help of Kickstarter and his fans he will have a new one out soon. 

"I am trying to complete the recording, manufacturing and distribution of my first Country music album in over 7 years and I need your help to do it. With any album there is so much that goes in to it. First, there is writing and picking the songs. Then recording them, then mix and master. Then you need to print them and distribute them. There are marketing costs, video costs, etc all that go into getting the album to the public. I need help covering these costs and am asking you to help me finish the album and get it out – all the while having really cool unique experiences along the way!" says Herndon

So far he's managed to raise a little over $1200 of his goal. If you'd like to help out, you can head over to his Kickstarter page to help him get kickstarted.
