First let me introduce myself. My name is Jeff Tuttle and I was born and raised in Monroe, Michigan USA. I moved to Nashville, TN in 1996.
I have been singing and writing country music since 1989. I have had both the honor and pleasure of working with and sharing the stage with some of the True Legends of Country Music.
I have a New CD "Livin' Like A Millionaire (ain't got a dime)"
that was recorded in Nashville TN and produced by Grammy Award winning producer Larry Butler (Kenny Rogers, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson to name just a few).
A year ago while performing in Florida I met a awesome couple from Ireland that also live in Chicago, IL. Terry and Jane Cox
. I have formed a business partnership with Terry.
While discussing ways to launch our new CD Terry brought up the subject of touring Europe. Being a "Traditional Country Artist"
Europe was really appealing. After further discussion Terry suggested that we might want to tour and perform in Ireland for 3 months and then the rest of Europe. That was just fine with me !!!
I can only begin to tell you how excited I was and still am at just the thought of getting to come visit the country that my ancestors are from and one that I have dreamed about seeing since I was a kid !! And now to get to come to this beautiful country with breathtaking scenery and to get to meet and share my music with the mighty fine people of Ireland is just priceless !!!
I have always been in awe of the pictures that I have seen of Ireland and then after meeting people that live in and are natives of Ireland sealed the deal !!
Terry is a successful business man with a vision that I am honored to be a part of.
Terry & company are now scheduling dates and venues around Ireland where I will perform. I will performing with a 7 piece band.
We haven't decided yet if we are going to bring my band from the USA. We might form a band with musicians from Ireland for this tour.
Any musicians that might be interested in this project can check out my music on my profile here on LiveIreland. All 12 songs plus 2 videos from a recent TV show I was on are here on my profile. Or you can go to
Musicians please feel free to email me here or at email@example.com.
Also I have a good friend from Limerick that played a part in my decision to come to Ireland. Olympic Medalist and now Pro Boxer and member of The World Famous Kronk Boxing Team, Andy Lee
Andy is one of the finest gentleman (not to mention one of the greatest boxers) that I have met. I met Andy several years ago through Legendary Hall of Fame manager/trainer and one of my best friends on this planet, Emanuel Steward
I am counting the days until I leave for Ireland and will arrive the second week of June 09.
I want to say "Thank You" for the warm reception I have already received and I look forward to meeting everyone and traveling around and performing in your beautiful country !!!!
