Synopsis: Born in Steubenville, Ohio, an area known for steel mills, entertainers & sports stars (Dean Martin, Clark Gable, Robert Urich & John Havliceck are but a few notables), Sam Wellington decided early in life that he would join ranks with his famous predecessors and go for the gold as well...records that is.Sam loved harmony singing and hit the stage his first year in high school with a do-wop group called "THE JETS," who later became THE FABULOUS FOUR GUYS. After winning numerous area talent shows and hearing the sound of ENCORE applause, Sam was hooked. In spite of a stint in the Navy, College, Marriage and a blossoming career in Journalism & Broadcasting, the show-biz bug had imbedded itself in Sam's psyche forever more.In this, his first book, "WHO WANTS TO BE A COUNTRY MUSIC STAR," Sam Wellington offers the DO'S - THE DON'TS & THE MUSTS of launching and maintaining a music career. More specifically, THE RIGHT WAY - THE WRONG WAY & THE NASHVILLE WAY. Meantime, all along the way, this book offers the reader a fun & informative ride up the charts to national prominence while providing plenty of insight into the heart & soul of the Nashville/Country Music Community.

About the Author: "SOMETHING ABOUT THE AUTHOR" You might ask yourself, "WHAT'S A GUY LIKE ME, WHOSE NEVER HAD A BIG HIT RECORD, DOING WRITING A BOOK ABOUT HOW TO SUCCEED IN THE RECORDING CAPITOL OF THE WORLD, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (don't get upset New York & L.A...latest figures say we ARE NUMBER ONE).Well, I have pulled off a trick far more difficult than achieving "Hit Record Status." I have not only survived but prospered in this "Records Only" city for more than 30-years with music being my primary involvement (if enough of you buy this book, the length of my music involvement will most certainly be extended).In order for the following work to have any credibility, I feel the need to provide you with some biographical background on my Not So Illustrious past. First off, I'm proud to say that I am a former High School Student, graduating 92nd in a class of 96, from Toronto High School, Toronto, Ohio (John Romey, the late Mike Romey (cousins) & Howard Nease finished below me). But hey, whada ya want? John & I were busy trying to get girls singing in a "Hot" high school group called "The Jets." Mike & Howard were busy trying to get girls by playing sports. John & I also played sports. He excelled at football & baseball while I merely dabbled (or should I say dribbled) in basketball. Studies just didn't seem all that important in those days. I'm sure I would have been far more embarrassed at graduation had I known we were accepting our diplomas in the order of our class rank. I thought I was nearly last because my last name begins with "W".Anyway, "The Jets" won a bunch of local amateur shows and nearly beat out "The Brothers IV" for a Columbia Records recording contract in New York City. When that effort didn't work out, my Show Biz Career came to a sudden halt. I decided it was time to get serious about life. I joined the United States Navy where I quickly learned that chipping paint aboard ship was not what I wanted to do for a living. After my service stint, I proceeded to embark on
