Sitting here in Franklin Tn drinking some great coffee….love that java! Wow…this is only my second post so I probably should get at it. Nashville is a place where dreams can come true as an artist…..but and a big but (no pun intended), there are so many pitfalls and struggles that most artists don’t get past their first year here let alone years 2 and 3. I’m going on 4. lol The most important thing as an artist is determination and a whole lotta grit. When I first arrived in Nashville I didn’t know one single person in the music biz here….not one. So I laid out a game plan of spending almost a year of just writing new songs. Song after song I wrote. Some really good and some I don’t evan wanna talk about. Through all the time spent songwriting a was able to capture my own unique style. See I’ve been a songwriter for quite some time, but when I came to Nashville it lit a fire within me. I started to meet other great writers and musicians which led me to a great studio called Treasure Isle…..This famous studio is where I had some of Nashville’s best studio musicians cut my first 10 songs. I’ll save that story for next time.
