|David A. Allds,|
|Founder, CEO, Flatlanders Music Publishing Group|
David A. Allds has spent nearly four decades expanding on and diversifying his skill set. He felt inspired to establish his two companies because he wanted to utilize his talents as a musically-inclined individual, and was encouraged by his mentor, Chet Atkins, to show others how they, too, can shine as musicians. Mr. Allds feels that his hard work, networking and relationship-building skills and passion for music led him to become the award-winning professional that he is today. Mr. Allds is a member of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, People to People Eisenhower Foundation, the Writers Guild of America, West, and Broadcast Music, Inc. He also belongs to the American Society of Composer, Authors and Publishers, the Tennessee Songwriters Association International, and the International Library of Poetry. He intends to continue striving toward excellence in his pursuits, writing screenplays and poetry, and venture into music production. Aside from hiring and promoting new artists, directing and recording productions and working with musicians, Mr. Allds enjoys sailboat racing, fishing, hunting, golfing, writing and playing baseball.
