History behind the song & how it made it on the EMS Top 40 Charts


Back in
May of 2002, T. Paul Matson was approached by Victor Gray (Cobweb Records) & Stuart Cameron (Hot Disc/Radio Caroline) about placing one of T. Paul's songs on the June 2002 HOT DISC.

The song chosen was called
" I WON'T FALL DOWN" which was written in protest of the dishonest nature of the American Music Industry (Nashville) and the industry people who run it. SEE BIOGRAPHY FOR MORE DETAILS

In 1997, T. Paul had been invited to record 6 songs in Nashville by the former Manager of a prominent Country Band. Muscians hired for these recordings included
the members of Lorretta Lynn's band, the Grande Ole Opry's Fiddle Player and other very talented musicians.

As the recordings progressed, the Manager & the producer became at odds with one another over who would sign T. Paul to an Exclusive management agreement. Each tried to secretly convince T. Paul to sign an exclusive management agreement without the knowledge of the other person.

Because of their obvious dishonest natures,
T. Paul refused to sign with either of them and headed back to his home in San Diego, California when the recording had concluded. The Producer did not want to give the recordings to T. Paul when he left Nashville because he said he wanted to tweek the final mixes until they were perfect. The producer spent the next 8 to 9 months trying to get T. Paul to sign an exclusive agreement with him and would not send T. Paul his recordings, inspite of the fact that T. Paul had paid for all of the recordings himself.

Finally, after a rather inflammatory conversation, the producer sent the recordings to T. Paul. When T. Paul listened to the recordings,
it didn't take long to realize that most the songs had been ruined. It was at this point that T. Paul called the Producer and made a very clear statement about what would happen if T. Paul ever heard one of his songs on the radio.

T. Paul hung up the phone and wrote the song,
"I WON'T FALL DOWN".
