My holy shit idea

Sooo I just had an epiphany a couple weeks ago about starting to record video of me playing Country songs that everyone loves. You're probably saying to yourself where the f*** has this guy been for the last ten years! And my answer to you would be...playing with my dingaling. Now I'm not going to say I didn't have any idea about posting videos on youtube of people playing songs but I just really didn't see the BIG DEAL in it until I actually bought a video program, borrowed a video camera, and starting making kick ass knuckle ball busting videos. I love this shit! Now sometimes I'm as nervous as a hooker in church being on camera, but I'm getting used to it. So tune in to my crazy ass life while listening to some bitchin' songs. I love playing music, I curse like a Sailor (I actually was in the Navy) and I paaaarty with rock stars.....and I actually do have a whole case of rock stars in my fridge. PEACE!

First Blog Ever: Nashville

Nashville...where the music never stops and the dreams only stop if you let them. I've had a lot of ups and downs living in this city but that was expected even before I moved here. The music business is a tough cookie to crack. I can tell you I'm on the grind 24/7 pitching music, playing shows, writing new songs, playing new songs, schooling myself in areas of the actual business side of the industry and yet still I feel like I've moved 1 inch with a gazilion miles to go. Ahhh don't let me fool ya...I secretly enjoy it. I enjoy it because the struggle one goes through often times make for the greatest songs. Heck even the "I drank a crap ton last night and am struggling on getting up this morning" fits in the best song category. You just have to keep pushing whatever way you know how. You're never gonna have all the answers, but if you keep looking, your bound to run into them. Well folks I just wanted to say hi, share some insight, and connect with y'all. I'll be posting new blogs from time to time about shows, stories, etc. Feel free to drop by, comment, or hell even complain. I'm all ears! Take care
