“I Didn’t Write This Song and Neither Did Darius Rucker”

I bet the guys who plays the bar scene in Nashville hate that they have to take all of their talent and songwriting abilities and use it to play other peoples songs. Songs that aren’t even that good. They just get played on the radio so people know them. We will take whats in front of us and think its amazing = Pop Music.

 

This is at a bar called Benchmark. I was walking Broadway looking for an empty bar with one guy and a guitar and found this guy through the window. – Unreal Low voice could listen to him all day. – He played some Original songs that he wrote, which would never have happened at a big time popular joint in town, but since the place was empty he played a few of his songs. – When he switched back to playing cover songs he was going to play the song “wagon wheel” and said “I didn’t write this song, and neither did Darius Rucker” – How that statement is so unbelievably true. – Pop radio is now jsut a bunch of writers that record companies tell performers to sing the words that are written. – There are no famous Bob Dylans or Johnny Cash’s anymore because they aren’t writing their own heart felt music. They are writing Walmart marketed music that speaks of a generic good time or generic hard time.

If you want to really get into good music now a days you ahev to really dig and search for un-purchased artist now. It can usually be found in the Folk genre. Folk can be any genre at heart, so you can find what style you are looking for.

that probably made no sense.

May Your Worries Never Faulter Long.

I’m currently on a the last leg of a week long road trip to southern Alabama and back with my mom. My little sister goes to the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) also on scholarship for NCAA gymnastics and so we jumped in the car to go see her compete at the SEC Championships in Birmingham. In which they won. Roll Tide.

Anyways, It’s kind of a ritual that we stop in Nashville and hit up a bar downtown on either a way there or on the way back. I love taking my camera downtown there. This is selfie of my mom and I. We’ve been in close quarters together for a week, and randomly been living in a log cabin in central Alabama, but are on our way back to Canada and made the stop on the way back.

Never forget where you came from, it will help direct you as to where you are and can go. If you came from nothing, then nothing can stop you. If you’ve come from everything, than everything will try and stop you. May your worries never last longer than your ambitions. May your dreams burn at your chest. May you be happy in your own skin.
