Keith Stegall is an accomplished country singer/songwriter/producer who got his foot in the door in the music industry volunteering to help part-time at a production studio in Nashville.
Keith went to college with the intentions of obtaining a phd in philosophy. After a conversation with an advisor who leveled with Keith about the job market of philosophy, Keith decided to pursue his true passion of songwriting. Having never considered this a professional option due to its recreational nature in his home, Keith says that had it not been for his advisor telling him to “drop out tomorrow and go write songs” that he would “probably be pretty miserable today.”
