A lifelong dream is coming true for up and coming country recording artist, Ryan Arnold. Ryan has dreamed of making it big on the country music scene from a very young age. It seems as though things have happened pretty fast, but Ryan has traveled a long, hard road to get to where he is now. Ryan was born and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He may have grown up in a larger city but he is a country boy at heart. Ryan's mom, Veronica, says she can remember him humming songs before he could even talk. In school Ryan was one of the children who annoyed many of his teachers by drumming on his desk or anything else he could hit a beat on. Music has been a lifelong passion for him.
In the Spring of 2010 Ryan hired on with a second band. Soon after they named themselves "Ryan Arnold and Wasted Nights". Ryan was playing with both bands on a regular basis at many events, from weddings to clubs. But this still wasn't enough.
Little did Ryan know, things were about to start happening for him. Ryan and Wasted Nights were booked to play a local benefit in his hometown, Labor Day 2011. During the show Ryan met Emily Sneed. As time passed Emily became Ryan's manager. Emily booked Ryan and his band for some other shows. Three months later Ryan began recording his debut album at Red Alert Studios with Shawn Conley.
Shawn Conley has helped Ryan develop a dynamic first album. The album has such a wide variety of country music on it from traditional country with the song "Pardon Me" to the modern country song he wrote "My Chance", which is about Ryan's journey to and in Nashville. Ryan has surrounded himself with a remarkable team of musical professionals with hopes that he can have a life long career in the industry.
This album is full of true emotion. Ryan truly feels every song that he sings for you. You can feel the emotion pouring out of the speakers as you listen along. This is a feel good album that you will enjoy tapping your toes too and singing along with.
