Watch Out Lauren And Scotty. David Archuleta Is Moving To Nashvile


20110523-120349.jpg

So, what’s this I hear? According to ArchuletaFanScene.Com, David Archuleta is moving to Nashville to begin work on an exciting new project.

Now, this is not fully confirmed as yet. The news broke when The Unlimited interviewed David at A Night to Remember: Utah’s 2011 Entertainment & Choice Awards Show held at The Salt Palace in Utah.

Hopefully, David was quoted correctly. I will add an update once I learn more, so check back often.

I wonder what our young man has up his sleeve? Please don’t go all country on us David. We are “countryed-out” what with our country style Top 2 from this season of American Idol.

Not to worry Archuleta fans. Although everyone associates Nashville with country music, music from all genres are represented in the Nashville music scene. That city has a phenomenal music history and performers from all genres have recorded and performed in this exciting city.

This is great news, isn’t it? Let me know what you think?

Her vocal and accompaniment skills were nurtured by her aunt, the late Dorothea Mascioli.

  1. This is enticing news, to say the least. I hope the “exciting new project” David allegedly refers to is recording a new album which, in turn, would signify signing with a new label. Waiting on pins and needles for confirmation from the man himself!

  2. MCL, we hope it’s true! And just to be clear, Archuleta FanScene didn’t say David was moving to Nashville, I merely reprinted an article saying he was, and like you, questioning if it were true. I’ve emailed Mateo Coletti, just to be sure David wasn’t misrepresented in the article. In any case,I’m super excited about David’s new project!

  4. I wouldn’t be surprised if it did turn out to be true. David has always talked about Nachville as being such a comfortable and positive place to go to.

    A very interesting article by Bob Lefsetz – http://lefsetz.com/wordpress/ – on Succeeding In Music. Some highlight are:

    “B. Major record label deal

    This is first and foremost about money. For the label. But they spend to make it and what’s thrown off, if they’re successful, is fame and money. So if you’re interested in those two, a major label is not a bad way to go. But despite the spending of money, you might still go unrecognized. And like every boss, the major label demands control. True artists are uncontrollable. So a major label is a bad fit.

    C. Independent

    If you’re a true artist, it’s the only way to go. But success, if it comes, will be slow. Fame will be limited. Money will be short. It’s about building, persevering.”

    and

    “6. Avenues for artistic success

    A. Television, major labels and major media come last. It’s all about building a fan base, which initially no one may recognize the size of but you. But if you’ve truly got a fan base, promoters will want to work with you, because they’re all about selling tickets and booze, and if you can get bodies in the building, they’re interested. AEG and Live Nation are interested last. Because they’re about the money. Since you’re about artistry, those who will help you will probably be living for the music too, the club booker making bupkes, the person in a lousy job who lives to spread your music. Enable these people.

    B. Since you’re an artist, you’re probably a lousy salesman. Focus on the music more than dunning potential fans. If you Tweet, make it about your personality, your viewpoint, not about selling. Hook people on who you are, not the fact that you’re frustrated you’re broke and want to make it.”

  5. Excited about this potential news, and happy for David too, if it’s true. Nashville and Nashville people seem to still be about the music. (And the music there doesn’t seem to require lyrics about gettin wit you in da club.)

    Love that Lefsetz article, too. David sure has the Twitter idea down pat.

  6. Is this ever exciting news!! I know how David has spoken about loving Nashville, and working with the people there. David had co-written songs for his latest album with Joy Williams. She also has two or three Christian albums out. I know that she and her husband own a management company in Nashville. I wonder if David is going to sign with them. Since he left WEG Management, I think his dad has been his manager. David will let us know when he’s good and ready to. For now, we’ll have to be patient!!
