How does a preacher’s kid from a small farm town in Ohio, arrive in a beat-up mail truck with forty bucks in his pocket, survive on the cold, lonesome streets of Nashville and end up a BMI Songwriter of the Century? Even Stevens pulls back the curtain for a peek at the music business in his book, Someday I’m Gonna Rent This Town!, revisiting the rejection, false promises, inspiring creative characters and money-grubbing scum suckers he met along the way: The drugged up record label exec….The Tina Turner “mistake”…..Hey! Clint Eastwood’s at the door!…..and other life changing brushes with the famous and infamous.
From his “Hippy” days in San Francisco to creating Dr. Hook’s, When You’re In Love With A Beautiful Woman, and Eddie Rabbitt’s, I Love A Rainy Night, the world of an aspiring songwriter is laid bare for all to see. Welcome to the odd world of Even Stevens.
