As per a press release issued by MindStir Media, a leading self-publishing company, Gary LeVox from the country band Rascal Flatts praised the company in a video on YouTube. In the video, he said, “I’m a big believer in using writing to share your message with the world. You know, for me it’s writing songs.
For you, it’s writing books. And, you know, either way, it’s all about putting your words out there and impacting lives. But you need the right platform. And that’s why I recommend MindStir Media, and it’s an award-winning self-publishing company. They can help turn your writing into an amazingly polished book and help you promote it, too. So, check out MindStir Media! You can’t change the world if you don’t take the steps. Go there now.”
Gary LeVox found fame as the lead singer of Rascal Flatts. After the band suddenly split in 2020, LeVox pivoted to a solo act. His first solo Christian album, Working On Sunday, is available now. He also has his own signature clothing line, Freedom Farms and LeVox Wears.
LeVox’s time with the Rascal Flatts saw a whopping 20 million albums sold and 25 million digital downloads. Rascal Flatts is widely regarded as the most successful country band in history, and the best-selling country band of the new Millennium with twelve #1 singles and over 40 music awards, including four Grammy nominations.
In 2019, Nancy Brooks from Country 102.5 reported that there may be a tell-all Rascal Flatts book in the future. “The real story come out with the Rascal Flatts book when we finished writing that,” Gary LeVox said. “You thought you knew, but you have no idea.”
There hasn’t been any news reported since with regards to a group-written book from the Rascal Flatts, but with the recent endorsement of MindStir Media as a book publisher, one can speculate that they might publish it with MindStir when it’s all said and done. Time will tell.
MindStir Media is no stranger to publishing books about music stars. As reported by us in 2021, MindStir released a popular and highly rated book about the legendary Linda Ronstadt, entitled Linda Ronstadt: Rock’s First Female Superstar. That book is available on Amazon and other fine retailers worldwide.
USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon bestselling author and renowned publishing consultant J.J. Hebert, the founder of MindStir Media, provided a statement about the LeVox endorsement: “Gary has one of the most famous and trusted voices in the world, so it’s an honor to have his endorsement of MindStir Media. As Gary said, authors can use our self-publishing platform to create a top-notch book and market their message to the masses.”
MindStir Media is an award-winning self-publishing company with offices in Los Angeles, New York City, and Portsmouth, NH. MindStir is partnered with Shark Tank’s Kevin Harrington and Mariel Hemingway, the granddaughter of the legendary writer Ernest Hemingway.
Last year, MindStir Media also received an endorsement from Tom Arnold, a comedian, and Hollywood actor. MindStir was founded by author J.J. Hebert to self-publish his debut novel, Unconventional, which went on to sell over 100,000 copies worldwide. The success of his novel attracted aspiring authors from all over.
“Initially, I just consulted with aspiring authors trying to replicate my success,” Hebert said, who is now a contributor for Entrepreneur Magazine and Forbes. “I quickly saw that there was a huge demand and hunger for self-publishing assistance like, which platform should you use, pricing questions and marketing help, so on and so forth. Many of the self-publishing companies available at that time were leaving a lot to be desired in terms of support, so that’s where I came in. I filled a void.”
Hebert also shared that his early consultations led to opening the doors to help authors with the entire self-publishing process. Authors didn’t just need consultations; they needed a better self-publishing platform and help with important publishing aspects like book cover design, editing, interior layout, formatting services, marketing, and distribution. In order to meet those needs of authors, Hebert teamed up with Ingram to distribute MindStir Media authors’ books and hired freelancers to provide creative services.
In 2022, J.J. Hebert’s MindStir Media brand is responsible for helping authors self-publish nearly 1000 published titles, many of which are Amazon best-sellers. MindStir’s published books have won over 40 literary awards. MindStir is also known for its influencer marketing services for authors – the company is able to connect celebrity influencers to authors’ books through endorsement videos, etc.
