Singing Homeless Man Found & Brought To Johnny Cash’s Studio

Singing Homeless Man Gets Record Deal

Swedish pop star Jill Johnson met a homeless man with a golden voice while touring in Nashville and was compelled to take him into the recording studio. Homeless man Doug Seegers wowed Jill Johnson with an original song called, “Going Down To The River,” and touched her heart with the song’s soul and sincerity. While in Tennessee, she took Seegers into the old recording studio of Johnny Cash and got his song put to music and recorded,

Upon the song’s release, it managed to land on the number one spot on the Swedish iTunes store. The European nation fell in love with Seegers’ voice, complemented with backing from Jill Johnson herself. From there, Doug Seegers got a record deal with Lionheart Music and has released an album. Though his popularity has been most prominent in Sweden, his story and his music is gaining attention in the States as well.
