Country musician Doug Seegers’ life is like a fairy tale come true.
In the fall of 2013 the homeless Seegers is playing the streets of Nashville, just as usual. But one day he is suddenly
discovered by Swedish country star Jill Johnson and her TV crew.
Johnson immediately recognizes the magic of Seegers voice and offers him to record his song “Going Down
to the River” in Johnny Cash’s legendary studio The Cabin.
When the Doug Seegers episode of the TV series “Jill’s Porch, Nashville” is aired in March 2014 the audience
just goes crazy. “Going Down to the River” instantly hits the top spot of the Swedish iTunes-list, and stays
there for 12 consecutive days.
Doug Seegers is now offered to record an album together with Emmylou Harris’ band and to tour Sweden,
from north to south ending up as the most sold album of the year in Sweden and quickly passed platinum
