Gingerly, I hold the May/June 2009 American Songwriter magazine that came in the mail today in my twice-washed hands. Wait...finish the last bite of that chocolate wafer cookie (sugar-free, of course), and wash hands again! I have to keep it clean, at least until Last Call Ball, where I hope to get the man himself to autograph this rare collectible at his annual fan club party!
Now, pick up the black and white (db colors!) "Dierks" covered magazine, gently turn and scan every page. How many pages do you suppose DB gets to grace? If you count photos and mentions, twelve!
What an honor for Dierks! He made such an impression, AS treated readers to a dozen pages of this "professional songwriter" in The Country Issue of AS.
Oh, and inside, there's a free CD, with 20 songs, including Beautiful World, from Dierks' Feel That Fire album!
I'll make a deal with you. You buy the issue as a die-hard-Dierks-fan way of saying thank you to American Songwriter, and I'll post the pages here. Deal? I know I can count on the DBC! Special thanks to nici for scanning them in!
OK, so there's only 11, but the 12th DB mention is on Matthew Shearon's Editors Note page. So enjoy, and ORDER the issue online at the americansongwriter.com store.
