Mitch Rossell Rises with Son
Mitch needed a new acoustic guitar. He wrote songs for a living and wanted a six-string that inspired –one with some songs in it.
It would also be nice if that guitar could somehow fill a massive venue with true acoustic tone, because one of his songs might become a big hit for Garth Brooks who might then ask him to be opening act for his stadium tour – just him and his guitar.
It could happen.
The songwriter is Mitch Rossell. The number one hit he wrote for Garth Brooks; Ask Me How I Know from Garth’s 10th album Gunslinger. The shows Mitch was asked to open for; the 2022 spring and summer dates of the Garth Brooks Stadium Tour - and the guitar Mitch would walk out on stage with; the Takamine CRN-TS1 slot-head, slope shoulder dreadnought from Takamine’s sonorous Thermal-Top Series.
So, we knew Mitch Rossell and we thought we knew his story, until a recent episode of America’s Got Talent (that we didn’t see coming) revealed the heart and soul of a Mitch Rossell that we didn’t know.
Watch and listen to Mitch laying it out by performing his autobiographical Son on national tv – the 3 long seconds of lit-fuse silence that followed – then the ringing blast of a live audience being detonated.
Takamine Guitars is deeply honored to play any roll whatsoever in the magic produced by the gifted Mitch Rossell.
