A special Island Hopper preview party is scheduled for Aug. 8, and you can register to win free tickets by visiting www.catcountry1071.com.
The special event will take place at Pinchers at The Marina at Edison Ford in downtown Fort Myers. A special performance will be given by songwriter Frank Myers.
His hit songs include “I’m Already There” and “My Front Porch Looking In” recorded by Lonestar, “I Swear” recorded by John Michael Montgomery, and “You and I” recorded by Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle.
Frank J. Myers is originally from Dayton, Ohio, but moved to Nashville in 1981 to pursue a career in music. He got his start in Nashville as band leader, road manager and lead guitarist for Eddy Raven in 1981 and worked with Eddy for 9 years. It was with Eddy that Frank started writing, playing and co-producing sessions. They had two number ones, five number twos and three top tens with songs such as “I Got Mexico,” “Bayou Boys,” “You Should’ve Been Gone By Now,” “Sometimes A Lady” and many others.
It was in 1982 though, that Frank had his first single (a song he wrote by himself) with “You And I” for Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle which stayed number one for four weeks Country, number two for six weeks on AC and number 6 for four weeks on pop. It was during his time with Eddy Raven that Frank met Gary Baker. They had their first number one together in 1993 with “Once Upon A Lifetime” by Alabama. Gary and Frank recorded one album for MCG/Curb Records as Baker & Myers and were three-time nominees for Duo of the Year at the ACM’s and CMA’s. Their greatest accomplishment as writers together came when John Michael Montgomery recorded “I Swear,” which was number one for four weeks on the country charts.
