Farm Boy Music is a Country Record Label and a BMI Publishing Company.
The record label was started to be an Independant label, that is for those that have experienced the rejection handed down by the music industry. We believe that there are so many good artists out there that just aren't quite what the industry is looking for. But yet they have the talent that music listeners would love to hear. So that be the case, why should their voices not be heard loud and proud.
Farm Boy Publishing was originally established to protect the personal songs and arrangements of the owner, and is now pursuing original material for plugging to country and gospel music recording artists. We are also building a catalog of material that can be pitched to the film industry. We understand how hard it is to get your material to the recording artists or their managers. There seems to be a break down of communication between the artist's managers and the publishing companies, when we hear that Recording Artist can not find any songs to record. We know that there are very talented songwriters out there that just can't get their songs published or plugged.

He also knows the heartbreak of having some of his songs rejected. Gary still writes and his latest song "Broken Moon" is in the process of being plugged to several major artists, Gary works very closely with Steve Ledford, bass guitarist of The New South Band, and Mark Chesnutt, and Mike Headrick CEO of Country Discovery Records.
