Nashville, TN, July 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Nashville’s Artist to the Stars, Corey Frizzell, has inked a new publishing deal with leading national publisher, Arcadia Publishing, to author a new book on Nashville’s Honky Tonk History, a subject close to Frizzell’s heart, being of the Lefty Frizzell lineage. Frizzell’s book will be part of Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series with a proposed release date of June, during CMA of 2013.
Established in 1993 and based out of Mount Pleasant, SC, Arcadia Publishing is the leading publisher in the United States for local history, with a catalog of more than 8,000 titles in print and hundreds of new titles released every year.
“I am very excited about being approached to author this book. It’s a subject that has always fascinated me. I will be working on the book over the next six months or so, juggling between writing, creating fine art portraits and other projects.” – Corey Frizzell
The Frizzell family, most famous for its prominence on the Country Music Charts, is now witnessing the artistic successes of the second generation. Although he has siblings following in the Frizzell music footsteps, who have accepted the challenge of emerging from the giant shadow first cast by the family music patriarch, Lefty Frizzell, Corey chose a different path, a path to create his own shadow.
Corey falls somewhere in the middle of the six children spanning four decades of Allen Frizzell, former Nashville recording artist and younger brother of the Legendary Lefty Frizzell and Country Star, David Frizzell.
Frizzell has been a Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, acted in music videos and cast for two roles in the original Stephen King movie, “Children of The Corn.” If that's not interesting enough, he's now a writer, producer, manager, boxing coach and visual artist in high demand, creating custom portraits of the stars for the stars.
In 2006, with royal country music blood running through his veins, Frizzell came full circle being named Nashville’s Artist to the Stars for his artistic collaboration with some of Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Americana and Roots music's biggest names, including George Jones, Randy Travis, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson, Mark Newton, Carl Jackson, Mark Chesnutt, Gene Watson and Jerrod Niemann to name a few.
