Welcome to my little corner of the internet world. My name is Don Tackett and I love to write songs. I am from a great little town called Danville, Kentucky. Raised in a country atmosphere and listening to the good old country music and Gospel, I tend to write more in these genres. However, I do like a good challenge and have made several attempts to step out of the box.
I began writing my own songs at the age of 9.. most of those you really would not like to hear.. lol. Anyway, the urge to write has never left me. I have heard it said that the more you practice the better you get, so you would think I would be an expert by now.. we shall see. I do not consider myself a great singer, but I sing only because that is the only way to convey the songs that I hear in my head.
I am a member of NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) as well as with BMI and GospelSongWriters.com I do some live shows locally so will try and keep that updated for anyone who is in the area so they can come on out and meet up with me. The best way to stay abreast of what is happening with me and my music would be to sign up for our mailing list so we can let you know when new songs are uploaded. I welcome feedback on my work, but please keep it G rated as this site is open to all. Its okay to say you do not like something I have posted, I will not be offended, it is all part of the learning process.
