Video director Goldmann battles cancer

Friday, April 3, 2015 – Well-known video director Steven Goldmann, who directed videos for everyone from Alan Jackson to Martina McBride to Brooks & Dunn, is the subject of a funding campaign as he battles cancer.

A GoFundMe campaign was started April 2 by long-time Nashville publicist Nancy Russell, seeking to raise $50,000.

"Wish there was better news to share, but Steven's doctors feel that further chemo treatments won't be helpful. Steven will be heading home from the hospital in the next few days where he will be supported by a Hospice team. It has been a rough journey for the Goldmann family. Stephanie has been able to work just a bit part time, but obviously has been very busy taking care of the insurance and medical challenges. Even with insurance, the costs both personally and medically have been devastating. I hope you will join me in contributing to this fund for Steven, Stephanie and daughters, Alexandra and Alana. Everything helps. Good vibes and prayers are important too!

Goldmann has directed more than 200 music videos. He also directed the movie "Broken Bridges," starring Toby Keith.

Goldmann had much success in 1998-99 with Faith Hill's "This Kiss," which won him awards from the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

Other videos he directed were "Red Dirt Road" by Brooks & Dunn, "Long Black Train" by Josh Turner" and "Pop a Top" and "Drive (For Daddy Gene)" by Jackson.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

After not knowing whether the group would even continue following the departure of half of the band a few years ago, The Felice Brothers continued with a new rhythm section and a new album, "Undressed," that is heavily political.... »»»
Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
