Like so may artists, T. Jae started his music career at an early age, and by the time he moved to Nashville, he was a seasoned entertainer, and on his way to becoming an established song writer.

Graham Brown, (blue grass great) Jimmy Martin, and many independents. Due to his friendship, association and guidance of the legendary Producer, Owen Bradley , T. Jae has also become an outstanding producer. In the late 1980’s, as the music was going in a different direction,(no longer traditional country) he formed his own label (Universal Sound Records) to make an outlet for the many great older artist that were being cast aside for the new movement. After establishing himself as a viable artist and producer in the European market place, he released such fine Indie artist as: Mary Lee, Pat Roden, Rick Sharp, Harley Cummins, Paul Alan coons Ralph Parker, Mindy Miller, and as of late, the great T. Graham Brown, who he is currently touring with and producing on Universal Sound Records. T. Jae has performed with many great artist: George Jones, Buck Owens, Ray Price, Conway Twitty, Roy Acuff, Ferlin Husky, Jimmy Martin, Johnny Paycheck, lefty Frizzell, to name a few.

Jae with awards such as: Artist and producer of the year, many #1 releases and albums of the year. In 2009, he recorded his first country gospel album, spawning four #1 singles, and a video (This Is Where Jesus Would Go) which was nominated in the top four with Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, and Tracy Lawrence.T.

For the first time in his life, hit songwriter, Roy August, has songs on the charts that he is singing himself. Indie Connect interviewed the ‘new star’ on his long career in the business. I loved the music of Roy Orbison, The Four Seasons, Bobby Vee and Hank Williams. And later, The Beatles, Beach Boys etc. I practiced my writing inspired by all of them. Fancy Free was a miracle to me. It was at a time when I was struggling and almost ready to give up and leave town. I had a lyric for the song, which I took to the Oak Ridge Boys’ office. At the time, Jimbeau was the manager. The Oaks were totally into Gospel then. I gave my four verses and a chorus to Jimbeau that day so long ago, and he said he’d co write it with me. He offered an equal split on the writer’s shares and the Oaks would get the publishing. It was a done deal. We worked on it until it was two verses and a chorus. Then it sat in a file for 8 years before it got recorded! When it did, it helped both of us. It jump-started Jimbeau and his legendary career, and helped me raise my family. It also was the Oak Ridge Boys’ first #1 hit!! Exerpts from Interview on IndieConnect By Justene Carter
