Mitch Rossell From Youtube to Nashville
Since moving to Nashville, TN just over a year and half ago Mitch Rossell can be said to be on the fast track to achieving his dreams of being a Country Music Artist. The ball first started rolling after John D. Hopkins of Zac Brown Band contacted Mitch via Youtube and invited him to a ZBB show in Kingsport, TN. After the show Mitch had the opportunity to play for everyone in the ZBB, which was the start of a key relationship with one of the top bands/artist in Country Music.
This relationship would lead to John D. Hopkins, Chris Fryar, and Clay Cook of ZBB playing on Mitch’s newly released single “Prayin’ It Don’t Rain” available on ITunes since Tuesday August 16th. Additionally, John D. Hopkins brought Jason “Slim” Gambill of Lady Antebellum in to play lead guitar on the record with Justin Williamson “fiddle” player for Brad Paisley and personal friend of Mitch rounding out the all-star cast of musicians on the record. Writers on the record include Mitch Rossell, David Reuter, and Curt Collins. Mitch’s entrepreneurial spirit has lead him to form his own production/publishing company with long time friend/mentor Josh Logan. Additionally, they have just launched a video division in conjunction with Chad Ainsworth of Chad Ainsworth Productions. The first project of the collaboration was the official music video for “Prayin’ It Don’t Rain,” release since September , 2011. https://www.youtube.com/user/OfficialMitchRossell
Mitch’s Youtube presence continues to generate fans and drive record sales enabling him to support himself as a full-time musician. Youtube has also generated re-tweets of Mitch’s videos via twitter from artists Brad
Paisley, Miranda Lambert, and Eric Church.
Youtube was also the primary marketing vehicle that landed Mitch a performance with Eric Church for a promotional segment produced by Dick Clark Productions for the Academy of Country Music Awards.
To date Mitch has amassed over 4 million views on Youtube. The 23 year old singer/song writer from Chattanooga, TN seems to be off to a fast start in the big city of neon dreams.
