“How are you going to make enough money to survive? How are you going to make this happen? Where are you going to work? Do you even have a plan?”
In the words of Big Kenny (of Big & Rich):
“You just gotta believe. You come to this town and you start meeting all these people and you become inspired. Everywhere you go there’s someone who can play, someone who can write a song. You finally meet enough of them that you start to think to yourself, ‘Wow, maybe I am kind of normal after all.'”
Nashville. “It’s a crazy town full of neon dreams, everybody plays, everybody sings.”
Although I don’t have the typical musician dream, I do have a dream of working in the country music industry. I fully believe that once I am there, surrounded by the people that make this crazy passion of mine feel “normal,” that this dream is going to really take flight. Thriving most on inspiration, I am positive that, although I might feel slightly threatened by the competition at first, it’s what I truly need.
