Campaign Details

I have been trying to tell the story of my Grandfather's fascinating career for 25 years. I know I was chosen to do this, I even have his middle name! Connie helped numerous performers get their start, and made Country Music a household name. His efforts paved the way for so many artists to become successful. 

I plan to shoot a promotional trailer to pitch as a TV show about his life. Funds are needed to pay for the production, and efforts to pitch it to networks like Netflix and Amazon.

Every one who donates will receive a credit and a special place in my heart.

Please donate and share! Thank you!
