“It has conflicting messages. Maybe it needs some work.” That was the nicest way of saying “the song sucks and we’re not even interested in taking your money and pretending to pitch it.” That was about the time I lost the taste for having songs pitched in Nashville, or anywhere for that matter. After reading those types of emails I would look up at the subject line again: “If That’s How You Think It Should Be.” How appropriate.
I went on a writing binge about the time I started having trouble discovering the kinds of songs I wanted to hear. I figured I’d just write my own. That led to the crazy idea that maybe there were others out there that would be interested in these songs as well. Maybe I should try to get them out in the open for others to hear. Didn’t work out so well. After all, I’m not exactly a country western troubadour but I certainly don’t fit in with today’s Nashville sound. If you’d like to argue that I could show you the countless emails from Nashville clearly confirming that my kind is of no interest to them.
Well, if that’s how you think it should be. I’ll just put it out myself. I don’t make a penny for sending it out in the world but I’m going to record them anyway and it’s worth the cost to me to allow others to give it a spin. So, for the 2-7 folks that actually visit the site, here’s one of many I was told wasn’t worth a damn.
