Doug McCormick is an upcoming singer/songwriter and aspiring artist from South Carolina whose amazing voice, energetic shows, and originality have set him apart from any other in the business. His appreciation for true country music and the love that Doug has for his fans have kept his dreams alive over the past several years.
Doug graduated from college in December of 2008 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Agriculture Education. However, his schooling did not hinder his career in any way. Playing well over 100 shows last year, Doug is quickly seasoning as an artist, a songwriter, and as an entertainer.
Along the way, Doug has opened for many nationally known acts such as, Luke Bryan, Rhett Akins, David Nail and Flynnville Train, to name a few. He has also headlined at nationally known venues such as:
• Wild Bills (Duluth, GA)
• Little John Coliseum (Clemson, SC)
• The Beachwagon (Myrtle Beach, SC)
• The Country Club (Augusta, GA)
• The Limelight (Nashville, TN)
• The Handlebar (Greenville, SC)
Doug released his self-titled debut album in September of 2008. All material on this project was written by Doug himself in an attempt to bring back a sense of sincerity to country music. His music is true, real, and passionate. Every lyric comes from the heart and every note comes from deep down inside.
While Doug was already very successful traveling the Southeast playing clubs, venues, concert halls, and festivals, he made his first trip to Nashville, TN in March of 2009. Doug quickly learned that the music industry was all about networking. In an attempt to network with as many people as possible, Doug began to focus more on his writing. This enabled him to meet more people in the business. As a result Doug has performed at several well-known writer’s venues around town such as The Commodore Sports Bar and Grill, The Bluebird Café, The Nashville Palace, and Douglas Corner Care. Doug’s efforts to pursue a career as an artist have also landed him in some of Broadway’s most notable venues such as Tootsie Orchid Lounge, Rippy’s Smokin’ bar and Grille, and the Cadillac Ranch.
Several fortunate events led to Doug's decision to pack up his dreams and move to Nashville, TN in January 2010. The Nashville based artist is currently recording his sophomore album which is scheduled to release by the end of 2010. He continues his extensive touring schedule on the road and constantly builds upon his already strong following. Each one of Doug’s performances is an encore performance that you do not want to miss. So be on the lookout and help spread the word about Nashville new comer, Doug McCormick.
