Brian Arrowood and Friends
Born in Western North Carolina on August 22, 1981, Brian Arrowood has had a vision from day one. When asked about growing up playing music, he responds, 'When you're grandfather's the best fiddler around, you better show 'em how it's done'. This bio is not about Brian's childhood playing music, however unique it might have been. In fact, it's what Brian has accomplished since then that has got people talking. The following link will take you to Brian and Charlie Daniels on You Tube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_apHCVEmPiw Check out brianarrowood.com as well. A gifted violinist, Brian has played the 'fiddle' all of his life, learning from his grandfather. The first full-time gig Brian has had is at the world famous theme park/musical extravaganza known as Dollywood. Brian was about to turn 19 when he took the job. Playing country music was now how Mr. Arrowood made a living. He played this show for a few years, then moved on. At 21 he began playing full-time in what some would call the best show in Pigeon Forge, Country Tonite. You might recognize the name of that theatre; there is another in Branson, MO. During this time, Brian Arrowood was called to record for Chartbuster Karaoke Recordings. Side note: If you go out to sing Karaoke, chances are you will be singing with a Chartbuster Track. Brian has played on these since he was 21, and now records the parts in his own studio. A google search will show how huge the Chartbuster market has become. And Country, what Mr. Arrowood plays on, is their top market. As stated, Brian worked at Country Tonite when he was 21, or the year 2003. The next year, around October, he was offered a job playing in a multi-million dollar Christmas Show in Nashville, TN called the Holiday Spectacular. It was to be held at the Bellsouth Acuff Theatre, located next to the Grand Ole Opry. This was a classical show with an entire orchestra including trumpets, trombones, and saxophones. It's obvious now Brian's talents are not limited to just Country. The next year, what happened was something players in Nashville dream of. That is, of course, the 'road gig'. However, Mr. Arrowood began playing with not a new artist, but a Grammy-Award winning Singer/Songwriter, who has a reputation for his heart and kindness towards children. I am of course speaking of Mr. Billy Dean. His most recent hit 'Let Them Be Little' launched a tour that took young Arrowood all the way to Alaska. What for some takes years, Mr. Arrowood accomplished in a few months. The love of music is something that drives individuals. They pursue it, they follow it, and look to find what they are indeed looking for. Brian Arrowood's cell phone is 615-613-1121 and his e-mail his email@example.com.
