Open Letter for Publication To Frans Maritz April 4
Open Letter for Publication To Frans Maritz and Wildhorse Entertainment: Wriiten by Marty Martel April 4, 2013
Sometimes in my daily workload in the music industry I forget who makes my day easier and more successful, and I automatically think that the ones that do so much for so many of us, know that we appreciate their commitment and passion for our business, and that is why they are always there to be of assistance. My friend Frans and his company Wildhorse Entertainment have been one of greatest support system for the country music industry, and all music genre’s since he has come on the scene, and I was sitting here thinking how much I owe to this man and the unselfish time that he gives to all of the great country DJ’s, all of the indie artists (“some” who never give thanks to anyone because everything is supposed to be free for them), publicists, managers, and talent agents. He is in tune with the news, the music, the artists, and the DJ’s and it is all worldwide, so that is why this man is so important and we all owe him a vote of thanks.
This small token of appreciation Frans is to thank you for all you do and continue to do, never asking for thanks, never skirting away from the pro’s and con’s of the music industry, and always there with time for all of us who need the support you give to make sure our business is given all of the promotion it needs to make it successful. I think sometimes many in our industry forget that the Fran’s Maritz’s of the industry have a business and we have to keep our doors open with work from the industry. I have watched many companies have to close their doors because everything they were doing was free and it really should have been something that was a job for us to do and get paid for. I know Frans is thankful as I am for being able to be of assistance for many in our music industry, but company’s do not stay functional unless their employee’s are paid for their work.
To you Frans I extend my sincerest thank you and gratitude for all of the great support you have given me and both of my companies as you continue to help make the country music stronger and to see more new artists have the opportunity to be successful by using our services to move forward in their careers.
Frans Maritz is one of the most unselfish men I have come to know and respect since our association began months ago. He is the real deal, and we need him to be able to continue to work for us with his news, his expertise, his comments to help the industry, and his undying support and passion for country music.
Thank you Frans, thank you.
