Doug Seegers

APA Nashville Adds To Roster: APA Nashville has signed singer-songwriter Doug Seegers to its roster. After spending numerous homeless nights with only a guitar at The Little Pantry That Could in the basement of West Nashville United Methodist Church, the 62-year-old singer-songwriter was discovered by Swedish Country artist Jill Johnson. While Johnson was shooting a documentary on street musicians, she met Seegers and took him to Cash Cabin Studios to record the song “Going Down To The River.” The song found success in Sweden, topping the iTunes chart.

Seegers will release his debut project on Lionheart Music Group, Going Down To The River on Rounder Records on Oct. 7, 2014. The project is produced by Will Kimbrough and features a duet with Emmylou Harris on “She,” which also features instrumentals on Harris’ Red Dirt Boys Band, and steel guitarist Al Perkins. Buddy Miller also makes an appearance on the project.
