David Johnson

I was born and raised in Sheffield, AL and have been married to Faye Kirk Johnson for 49 years. Life member of the First Baptist Church ( now York Bluff Baptist.) I attended Northwest Jr. college, UNA and earned my TMP (Tourism Marketing Professional) designation from The Southeast Tourism Society’s Marketing College.

I worked in the music recording industry, in Sheffield, for twenty one years working with artists and record companies from all over the world.(1968-1989 Quinv’y Recording Studio/Broadway Sound Studio)

I severed as Director of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame for 21 years, (1989-2010) starting with the ground breaking, the construction and then operation.

For the past 10 years I have operated David Johnson Productions specialization in music event presentations.

For the past 30 years, I have worked in a career based on community relations. Working with local organizations and small businesses and have worked on initiatives that directly affect Economic Development, Tourism and Recognition, statewide and nationally.

My experience in City government comes from serving nine years on the Sheffield Commission (1980-1989) where I was involved in bringing many businesses to our city and was responsible for getting the City Employees in the State Retirement System. My 21 years as Director of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, a state agency, has given me close contacts and great government relationships in Montgomery and Washington which will help with access to information and programs that can help our city.

I was appointed by two separate governors to the Alabama Music Hall of Fame Board, I have served as President of the Alabama Mountain Lakes Tourism Board, The Southeast Tourism Society’s board, The Sheffield Utilities Board, The Northwest Shoals Community College Foundation.
