I’m sure all of you remember me telling you about Daniel Lee Martin, (a recording artist with ChinMusic Records), and I hope you’ve taken the time to run over to his MySpace page and listen to a little of Daniel Lee’s music. He’s really great. I love his songs, “On My Way” and “It’s Already Been Said.” I’m sure you’ll love them, too.
Back when Daniel Lee opened for Joe Diffie (the end of May) at Freedom Hall in Johnson City, I made the comment that he was an entertainer who could put on a great show with nothing but a guitar and a microphone. And, he is. (More recently, I said that about Randy Houser, he is, too! Can you imagine Daniel Lee and Randy doing a show together?)
Tonight’s post, however, is not about Daniel Lee’s music. And it’s not about Randy Houser, it’s about something Daniel Lee did, that is so cool. He recently competed in the Field & Stream Celebrity Total Outdoorsman Challenge, presented by Mobil 1 at The 2008 CMA Fest.
Bryan White, Mark Wills, and several other country artists participated in the outdoor skills event. They competed in archery, air rifle, bait casting and fly casting. And the winner is …..
Yep, Daniel Lee won the competition, beating out two-time Total Outdoorsman Challenge Champion Paul Thompson. Daniel Lee will be featured in an upcoming issue of Field & Stream, and now holds the title as County Music’s reigning Total Outdoorsman. He also won a hunting trip with Keith Warren’s Hunting and Outdoor Adventures. The trip will be filmed for broadcast on Outcoor Channel and Versus networks during the fourth quarter of 2008, and will appear on “Backstage & Backroads with Daniel Lee Martin” on The Sportsman Channel.
I need to say Thanks to Kristina Martin, who took this picture of Daniel Lee with Anthony Licata (left) and John Davis of Field and Stream (right).
That’s all for now. You guys take care and have a great Friday! And remember, if you hear something good about someone great in the wonderful world of country music … stick it in an e-mail and let me know about it so we can share it with everybody!
I’ll talk to you all soon.
