SADDLE BROWN, hailing from Lincolnton, NC, grew up enmeshed in Country (the music and the lifestyle). It's a classic tale of a hot young talent learning his craft in the heart of the South. Over the years, he became a regular part of the house band at Yesteryears in Charlotte, NC. He also appeared several times as a special guest on the Ken Linker Variety Televised Showcase. His poise and charisma in front of the camera even earned him a spot as co-host of the show for a year. SADDLE entered the Queen City Talent Search at Cricket Arena in Charlotte, NC. By the time he'd watched the first 58 contestants rap, he realized that he might have signed up for the wrong competition! Walking onto the stage wearing a cowboy hat, the hip-hop crowd started laughing. It didn't get much better when his backing CD started skipping. SADDLE kept going, saying, "I guess the sound system's only set up for rap. That's okay, I don't need it. He launched into an a cappella reading of Tim McGraw's "Angry All the Time". The crowd loved it. He ended up taking first place and the $10,000 check. But that's just SADDLE BROWN. Nothing stops this guy! On his first visit to Nashville a few months ago, SADDLE walked into Opry Mills during the Traveling Music Television National Connection Talent Show. He entered completely unprepared, and ended up taking first place in the semi-final round. I suppose that's what prompted his move to Nashville. He landed his first showcase just one month after arriving. A top of the charts producer, attended, and was instantly converted into a rabid SADDLE supporter. SADDLE's recently completed his first CD on Music Row, writing and singing all of his own material, and has an impressive catalog of over 300 songs.

NWP welcomes the Executive Producer of the hit movie "Captain Phillips", Dana Brunetti!
Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is — through director Paul Greengrass’s distinctive lens — simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
Dana talks about the filming of this movie and his other upcoming projects including Evel Knievel, House of Cards and Fifty Shades of Grey.
NWP welcomes Dana Burnetti. Executive producer to the Tom Hanks film "Captain Phillips" being released this weekend.
