I couldn’t wait to set foot in Nashville and I am lucky enough to have visited when the CMA Festival was in full swing. The sun shone way into the 90’s and Broadway filled up with country boots.
Nashville is to musicians as Hollywood is to actors.
What did I think? I think it spoke to the very best and worst sides of me. The place is full of talent old and new, triers, believers and hopeful dreamers. It’s alive with spirit and those clinging onto possibilities. It’s a place that can exhaust you and also leave you wondering and maybe re considering when moonlight and moonshine hit you. Right up until the day breaks once more and you pick yourself up and try again. Cos that’s what dreamers do.
Nobody cares when you’re sitting on the floor; they only pay attention when you’re winning.
I totally got it and Nashville is a place I….. felt.
Obviously I went prepared with two new songs to get in the spirit of things because I am going to have a top ten Country hit one day and have since made a tunesmith page to fill up with songs. You can listen to them here once you’ve watched my Nashville video below.
“Cowboys aint easy to love and they’re harder to hold,
They’d rather give you a song than diamonds or gold”
