- SONGU SUCCESS SPOTLIGHT! RUSS PRUITT - This week we're shining the light on songwriter Russ Pruitt (member since 2007, Ohio). Type of Good News: Got a Song Recorded via a SongU Street Pitch. Song Title: "Glory Land." Artist: Ralph Stanley II.
Congratulations to Russ Pruitt and music publisher, Bob Dellaposta (My 3 Kids Music) who secured a cut with the song "Glory Land" on Ralph Stanley II's upcoming album to be released in July 2019. This traditional Country/Gospel project is a tribute to his late, great father, Ralph Stanley.
About SongU, Russ says, "My experience with SongU has been great, and of great benefit to me as a songwriter. The coaches have helped me improve many of my songs, and as someone who doesn’t live in Nashville, the pitching service has given me access to publishers and other music business professionals that I couldn’t otherwise have."
Great job, Russ! Listen to the demo of "Glory Land" and more of Russ's songs on his SongU Member Website. And special thanks to Bob Dellaposta for continually believing in our members as a pitch guest and a mentor!
Remember to submit your own good news here for a chance to be our success spotlight!
