POISON lead singer Bret Michaels is close to signing a "country" deal on new indie label Lofton Creek Records, according to The Tennessean.
Bret, who lived in Nashville for a few years in the late '90s, met Lofton Creek label chief, Mike Borchetta, through singer-songwriter Jeffrey "Buns of" Steele.
"He has been the perfect gentleman every time I've seen him," Mike told the paper.
Bret, who makes a cameo in the upcoming TRACY LAWRENCE video for the next single, "It's All How You Look At It", is reportedly planning a country version of the POISON hit "Every Rose Has Its Thorn". More information is expected soon.
