People think because I'm a country promoter, manager and lyricist I must be aiming for the ultimate goal. The one thing that everyone aims for. The pinnacle destination.
If there's one thing you need to know about me, it's that everything I do is against the grain.
That's not on purpose. That's not me being awkward and that's not me saying that everyone else is doing it wrong. The opposite in fact. If I'm the only one doing it then maybe I am the one who is wrong.
However, there is no right or wrong answer. It makes sense to follow the neon arrow that points straight to music city.
But I'm different. I don't believe that all your hopes and dreams should be pinned to one place.
I'm more New York than Nashville. I'm more Yellow Brick Road then the straight road and I'm definitely more open minded to the possibilities that lay before me.
I have proven to myself that doing this thing we call life in my own way has served me well.
I'm not part of any clique, group or under any peer pressure to do things any way but my way.
I know there are people who stand back and ponder on how I do things, people who come to the forefront and critique my decisions and my way of doing things but in the future I'll thank myself that I stuck to what I believe in.
Just like everyone should.
Do what you do for you. Follow your arrow. Be the very best version of yourself.
