It is CMA week here in Nashville. Basically, another reason for everyone to get really, really drunk. And of course, to celebrate the talented musicians that roam the lovely 615.
However, there’s been something bothering me, and I finally can address it as an issue. I get that I’m a girl, with blonde hair and blue eyes, but that does mean I don’t know what I’m doing and that I’m stupid. To me, that’s worst than being sexist, you are literally judging me based on how I look. Just about every meeting that I’ve had, everyone that I’ve talked to. Everyone has told me, that I will have a harder time because I’m “pretty with blonde hair blue eyes.” To be honest, I don’t even know what the hell that means.
But then I watched the CMAs tonight, and I saw that Chris Stapleton stole the night. Not your typical, really good looking, pop country artist out there. But his music is fantastic and according to the rest of the world, everyone else agrees with me. So what does that mean for me, it means that I have a chance to make it as a production person in the music world, even if I don’t “look” like your typical girl working backstage.
