12/13/18 - Meet Country Artist and Family Farmer, Ben Rue

Host and American Family Farmer, Doug Stephan begins with news and opinion about how the American Family Farmer is getting screwed by the brand new Farm Bill. Next, meet Country Singer and Family Farmer Ben Rue Ben came to Nashville by way of small-town in Oregon, where he grew up the youngest of three brothers on his family’s 2000-acre grass seed farm. Driving a combine since he was 11, Rue wasn’t one to shy from the hard work of the farm, but found himself writing songs and creating his own music as he worked. While continuing to work on the family farm after graduation, Rue formed his own band, began performing regionally and successfully auditioned for TV’s The X-Factor, which – together with the support of a local country DJ – ultimately spurred Rue to make the decision to move to Nashville in 2012. Finally, Host Doug opines about the kind of marketing that you should be doing for your products.
