Danny Faircloth does CD with Willie Nelson
By DAVE McMILLION / Staff Writer
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Danny Faircloth has consistently worked at the art of being a songwriter, and some people in the music industry believe he is hitting his stride.
After all, sharing space on a compact disc with Willie Nelson is nothing to sneeze at, his supporters say.
Last June, Faircloth competed with 160 other performers at a Star Search competition in Hagerstown. His performance of his song "Hand-in-Hand" led to Faircloth being selected to have the song included on a new compilation CD called "Nashville Music Express."
The CD features 21 performers and includes a song co-performed by country music legend Nelson and Curtis Potter, Faircloth said.
"Nashville Music Express" is receiving airplay in 46 European countries and Faircloth is anxiously waiting to see how the CD and his song fare on radio hit charts in those countries.
Country music can receive rave reviews abroad, and is sometimes distributed first in European countries to determine its potential for success, Faircloth said.
