Well, it’s July 23rd and it’s HOT in Nashville. I guess living in Cali for this past year, it’s easy to forget what it’s like to live in this kind of heat. I used to live in Arizona and it got ballz hot there too, but it’s a dry heat so it’s easier to deal with. The humidity is what really kills you here in the South….although it is good for your skin….
Other than the weather during the day, it’s great to be in Nashville again! I much prefer to come here as a visitor and work rather than living here full time. That was too hard. I prefer being able to “plug in” to what’s going on here and then “unplug” and go home. There is so much hurry up and wait in this business and remember being my happiest in Nashville when I was actually playing, writing and seeing music. It was the down time, the day-to-day that killed me and made me miss California. See the thing is, I don’t totally fit into the mold here. At least in the straight up country market. I really wrestled with this when I was living here because I wanted success so so badly. It took me a while to realize that it’s not the country industry that I’m probably ever gonna connect with here, it’s the SONG! That’s where this place touches me and teaches me. I have a much more peaceful relationship with Nashville keeping this in mind.
