T.J. Sparks (aka Anthony Barletta) is a fast-rising Country music singer-composer based in New York.
T.J. recently released the track “What Would Christmas Be,” and his first Holiday song gained much success, airing on over 400 radio stations, and the music video was included in many Christmas specials.
Now, his exciting, new-fangled track “Margarita Monday” is gaining interest from Country music enthusiasts all over the world, with requests coming in from as far as Australia.
T.J Sparks is no stranger to music. He has always had a passion for it and, in the past has played violin, trombone and bass guitar. Growing up in the 70s and 80s, he was a member of many bands. In the 90s he formed his own group, but unfortunately their efforts only went so far. The reality of life set in, as most of the members had lives and families of their own, which did not fit into the world of music.
Fast-forward to 2015. By chance, T.J. began listening to New York’s NASH-FM and fell in love with Country music. He thought to himself, “How come Country music is not getting the kind of attention it deserves here on Staten Island?” He found that there were many other Country music fans on Staten Island. T.J. decided to start Sparks Country Entertainment and host events where Country music fans could come and listen to the music, line dance and sing along, and developed a growing Country music following in Staten Island.
Then last fall, while cleaning out his shed, T.J. came across the original 90s music from his past adventures and thought to himself, “We can Countrify this awesome music!” He sent the tracks to various studios in Nashville, who agreed that there was potential.
And so, with “Margarita Monday,” here it all begins…
