Just for the Record
by Larry Butler with Dave Goodenough
Just for the Record is perhaps unlike any book you have ever read. You’ll find many humorous and fascinating “behind the scenes” stories regarding Larry Butler’s associations with some of the biggest names in show business—names like Julie Andrews, Sammy Davis Jr, Johnny Cash, Tim McGraw, and Frank Sinatra, to name a few. It is crammed with sage advice for anyone who desires to be more successful—not only in the music industry, but in their personal life. It is told with a humor and real-life humility that only a masterful songwriter could produce.
This is a must-read for anyone who has aspirations of breaking into the music industry. It contains must-have knowledge from current and former executives at Sony, BMI, ASCAP, Capitol, and United Artists, as well as contributions from artists such as Kenny Rogers, BJ Thomas, and more. Whether you are a student of music or the CEO of a major company, this will be one of the most enjoyable books you will ever read.
In Just for the Record, Larry takes you on the musical journey of his life. With over one hundred gold and platinum records to his credit, along with multiple Grammy and CMA awards, he not only “talks the talk,” but he has truly “walked the walk.” Now he is giving back, in a delightfully entertaining style, to those wishing to improve their lives. Here you will find some unique and extraordinary lessons that Larry learned in the pursuit of his very successful career. Just be warned: once you start reading, you won’t want to put this book down!
