"Beth Marie Anderson is one of those rare exceptions, where talent, beauty and drive all meet in someone very young. I met her three years ago,when she contacted me and my business, "Customized Songwriters 'tours' of Nashville" for artists and songwriters. Being barely 20, yet making a trip to Nashville alone is pretty astounding to begin with but she was different, having actual talent to back up what she was doing.Over the space of a very few days we wrote many songs, including "Open Road" which to me,was a theme of her journey in Nashville and one of my proudest songs in a 35 year career of writing with and developing artists.
Over the subsequent years, we have continued to work together, writing when she is able to make the trip,and I have observed her performing, networking, making friends and impacting people. I'm very proud of our work and our association. You can't say enough about Beth. They don't come along like that very often."Marc-Alan Barnette, owner of "MARC-ALAN BARNETTE MUSICAL TOURS" www.marcalanbarnette.comA veteran of the Nashville music industry, with songs recorded by Grammy Winner, SHELBY LYNNE, country legends like JOHN BERRY and David Ball's "TOO MUCH BLOOD IN MY ALCOHOL LEVEL."
