Things sure have changed for Doug Seegers ever since that magic night in the early spring of 2014, when he performed his song ”Going Down To The River” in a Swedish TV show hosted by the local country star Jill Johnson. It was an overnight success, the song went straight to #1 on the Itunes chart and in a few months Seegers went from the life as a homeless street singer in Nashville to a major star in Sweden. His debut album ”Going Down To The River” went Platinum. A duet album with Jill Johnson as well as a Christmas album both charted. He’s done around 200 shows, more or less all of them sold out. And he’s been on all the major TV shows. But all that is history now when we’re looking forward to next chapter of the fairy tale. A chapter that’s perhaps not as spectacular as the first one, but never the less quite amazing.
