There are a lot of singer/songwriters in Nashville. Let me rephrase that,
THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF SINGER/SONGWRITERS IN NASHVILLE.
It takes a lot of work, networking, but sometimes just luck to get to where you want to go as a singer/songwriter. Breaking in is half the battle. The other half is writing a song that “catches”. Whatever that means, I just know, it’s freakishly hard.
The one thing I do admire my friends for is how they spell their life into their songs. I for one, think it’s one of the most vulnerable things you could do. Admitting your doubts, fears, accomplishments, heartbreaks and much more to the world. Most people it takes months to say I love you to their partner.
I actually used to write a lot, when I was younger. Writing songs helped me focus my energy and understanding my feelings a little bit deeper.
I strongly suggest to those who have any sort of strong passion to put it down on paper. you would be amazed at what comes out.
