A Coosa County native who became involved in the music industry is now celebrating releasing a single with rapper Petey Pablo.
Dimitris Johnson, whose stage name is Mitri Myers, performed his song “Doin Good” with Pablo in June, and it was officially released on August 19. Johnson describes his latest single as a hip-hop song, and it can be found by doing an online search for “Mitri Myers featuring Petey Pablo.”
Johnson was excited about getting to work with Pablo for his new song. He described Pablo as being “so down to earth” and having a “strong passion for music.”
Regarding how the collaboration came about, Johnson said, “I’ve been knowing him [Pablo] for years, and a conversation led to us collaborating. He heard some of my music on Instagram, and he liked it. I then asked if we could do a song together, and he agreed.”
“It meant a lot for me to do a song with Petey Pablo because I’ve listened to his music for years,” Johnson added. “I never imagined myself collaborating with him.”
Johnson has been in the music industry for 10 or more years, he said, but this collaboration is a highlight for him and one he is excited about.
He said he has always had a love for music and various sounds, but that what he loves the most is that it offers a way for him to write what he feels and to clear his mind.
Johnson currently has an album online titled “Heaven Sent,” which can also be found via an online search. Additionally, he has single hip-hop songs online, but his latest solo song is called “Alabama.”
His music is included across all platforms such as YouTube, Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, and others. His music can be found by searching “Mitri Myers.”
When asked about his future plans regarding his music, Johnson said, “My future plans for music is to continue writing and enjoying myself doing it!”
As he continues along the path of the music industry, Johnson is mindful of those who helped him get where he is and who have supported him along the way.
“I would like to say thanks to everyone that has bought CDs over the years or even Googled me,” he said. “That love gives me motivation.”
Johnson was born and raised in Rockford, but now resides in Alexander City. He is a member of First Baptist Church of Rockford where Stanford Benson is pastor.
