Music with Jim Counter
Jim began performing in front of audiences at the age of 12, and since then he’s opened shows for The Marshall Tucker Band, Toby Keith and Martina McBride. He’s recorded 4 CD’s, and will release # 5 in 2012.
Jim and his band Riley Road competed against 110 bands from 11 regions and won “WI State Champions in Pop Music”. He also performed on the first annual ‘Freedom Sings’ concert, sharing the stage with Kim Richey, and John Kay of Steppenwolf.
Jim sang the National Anthem to sellout crowds in Pro Football for the Green Bay Packers & the Chicago Bears and Pro Baseball for the Chicago Cubs & the Atlanta Braves. He also had the pleasure of singing it with his brother Mike at a Brett Favre Celebrity Softball Game.
As a singer and composer, Counter has been successfully involved in jingles for both radio and television. He composed and sang the theme track for a former ESPN show hosted by former Green Bay Packers middle linebacker Brian Noble.
Along with Mike and senior news editor Jim Anderson, Jim composed a Green Bay Packers fight song entitled “Leaders of the Pack are Back”. In November of 2009, his music was placed in a Robin Roberts ABC special called “In The Spotlight”.
