From homeless man to country music idol

Aleteia - published on 12/20/18

From Aleteia’s new inspiring series: Look Up, episode 2

Doug Seegers was born of “failure.” He had a broken marriage behind him, unstable employment, and a life spent chasing the dream of becoming a country music singer. When he finally arrived in Nashville, he ended up living (and playing) on ​​the street, with drug and alcohol problems. But right when he hit rock bottom, God offered him a second chance and a new direction-one that passed through Sweden.
