About Troubadour, TX
Troubadour, TX is an award winning (17 Telly Awards), 2013 Lone Star Emmy® Award nominated docu-reality series that takes you behind the scenes and into the lives of today’s singers and songwriters; men and women who are living the dream…others who are chasing it. Some perform to sold out crowds. Some are just hoping to catch a break. Some of these artists have written hundreds of songs…others, just a few. Most of our artists who are living the dream have enjoyed numerous number one hits and when they perform, the audience sings along. Some artists dream of having a hit song; of experiencing that moment when the crowd knows their music and when it happens…it’s big. Making it in the music business is about more than talent…it usually takes a team – managers, musicians, money and a whole lot of determination to never look back. This is where the music, the passion and the journey begin.

Tim’s biggest hit was “Love In The First Degree” (Alabama), but he also wrote No. 1 singles “When I Call Your Name” (Vince Gill), “The Bluest Eyes In Texas” (Restless Heart), and “She Got the Gold Mine, I Got The Shaft” (Jerry Reed), and has 24 Top 10 singles.

That’s my positioning statement in life.”
Paul HastabaSee his Story »
VP Sales, Distribution and Marketing for 41 Entertainment
“The thing that gets me out of bed each morning is the opportunity to provide people with innovative marketing and sales solutions that drive their businesses. I enjoy collaborating with clients, assessing their needs applying my years of experience in the Local Broadcast and National Cable world to create intelligent solutions.”
Got His Start: Making a positive impression on others is a big deal to Paul. There’s a reason for that. “Advice I imparted to my two (now grown) boys is to always present yourself well, look people directly in the eye and give a strong handshake. By the time you graduate from high school or college there is the chance you will have met the person who will provide you with your first job opportunity.” Paul’s advice is born from first-hand experience. His best friend’s father was head of creative services for the ABC Network. Paul was a fixture at their house growing up and when he graduated from college with a degree in business administration, his friend’s father thought Paul would be a good fit for the broadcast industry. After 30 years’ industry experience, Paul would agree.
