The Real Life Mr. Brady Turned Country Star?
You read that right! Darren Taylor was a single Father of 3 boys while pursuing his Country Music dreams in Nashville, TN. He was content being single until 2 of his friends told him that they had met their soulmates on the same online dating site. Darren thought he might have the same luck, so he immediately signed up for a Free 3 day trial. While on that trial he realized that love knows no boundaries. So he expanded his search to Florida. As fate would have it he saw a profile picture of an incredibly beautiful woman named Andrea who was holding a baked ham on a Silver Platter. Darren thought to himself, "She sure is pretty, but that ham looks delicious!" He likes to say that it was love at first ham. Darren wasn't much of a cook, and he and the boys were used to eating TV dinners. When Darren read Andrea's profile, he noticed that she was a Chef. He reached out to her right away and found out that she was also on a Free 3 day trial. Her mother had heard great things about this same dating website from her brother, and told Andrea that if she didn't make a profile of her own, she would make one up for her. So Andrea chose to make her own profile instead of her mom making one for her. When Darren reached out to Andrea, she quickly responded to him after reading what she said was a very sincere and well written profile. About 2 months after talking for the first time, and traveling back and forth from Florida to Tennessee, Darren, the kids and Andrea sat down for a dinner they had made for her. When it came time for dessert, Darren had one of the boys get the dessert plate and set it on the table in front of Andrea. To her surprise the dessert had been replaced by an engagement ring. Before she could say anything, Darren went to get his guitar and sat down and played a song he had written for her called, "Will You Marry Us?" She said yes and they were married 30 days later, becoming "The Real Life Brady Bunch". Andrea agreed to leave the sunny beaches of Florida and move with her 3 kids to the cold state of Tennessee, so Darren could continue to chase his musical dream. They made a deal to live in Tennessee for 2 years and then move back to the Sunshine State. Within a year of being married the kids began to play instruments and started learning the songs that Darren & Andrea had written together. So they formed a family band and became, "The Real Life Brady Bunch Meets The Partridge Family Gone Country". They bought a Tour Bus and traveled from state to state playing shows and doing radio interviews to promote their single, "Will You Marry Us?". They were even featured on National & Local TV Shows. Fast forward 10 years: The kids are all grown up and chasing their own personal dreams, while Darren & Andrea are still writing songs together. Andrea enjoys the winters a whole lot more since Darren made good on his promise of moving her and the family back to warm and sunny Florida. Darren has just released 2 Albums and is releasing his newest radio single to a Country Radio station near you. It's a song he wrote during one of the darkest times of his life. But out of that darkness emerged a song about being grateful for the most important person in his life whom Darren credits for turning his darkness into light. "The Richest Man Alive" expresses Darren's feelings, that no matter how bad things seemed, he was still, "The Richest Man Alive". The song was produced by Nashville based record producer, "Kenny Royster" who has won an Emmy Award and has been credited on FOUR #1 Country Hits including the recent #1 Smash hit by "Luke Combs" called "Hurricane", which Kenny recorded and engineered in his own studio. Darren is shooting the music video for "The Richest Man Alive" with well respected Nashville based video producer, "Flick Wiltshire" who has produced #1 videos that aired on CMT & GAC such as "You Find Out Who Your Friends Are" by Tracy Lawrence, "Amazing Grace" & "Precious Memories" by Alan Jackson along with filming, "Metallica", "The B-52's", "Billy Joel" & "Garth Brooks".
