Back To The Grind
Well, here it is…my first blog post of 2019. Please bear with me…I’m still getting used to the new year, and I’m not quite sure it fits yet. I may have to make a few alterations to make sure I wear it well.
Besides doing a whole lot of Nashville Access radio shows, podcasts, and Facebook Live shows, I managed to get a few auditions in for tv commercials and print ads. I didn’t get a callback for any of them, but that’s not something I really stress about. Sure, the money is always nice but, for the sake of my sanity, I forget about the auditions as soon as I’ve done them. If I get a callback, I get a callback. If I don’t, I’ve already forgotten about it. It’s too easy to be critical of myself and second guess everything I do if I decided to worry about how I did. Sometimes, casting directors know what they’re looking for and sometimes they don’t. All I can control is how I present myself. Everything else is up to God, ultimately.
One thing I can guarantee you is that we’re going to have a great time on my Facebook Live show, every Thursday morning. We’re going to be experimenting with a few thing on the technical side, so you can be more included in the show. Plus, watch for our guest list to be increasingly varied. The emphasis will still be on music—and we always bring you great country and Americana artists, but we’ll also be bringing you more of the different genres of music in Nashville. We did that a couple of times last year, with rock and opera artists. We’ll also be bringing you interviews that are also in the “lifestyle” vein. If you recall, Gigi Butler of Gigi’s Cupcakes was my guest just before Christmas, so watch for more of that kind of thing.
Remember…if you miss my Facebook Live show when it’s actually “live,” you can watch them any time on Facebook. You can also hear the audio portion of most of my interviews as part of the Nashville Access Podcast. Tell your friends about the Nashville Access Podcast, if you don’t mind. It’s a really good hour of entertainment. Listen, subscribe, and tell your friends. As always, in the digital world, subscriptions and downloads help us get bigger. The Nashville Access Podcast is available, for free, just about everywhere you can get podcasts: iTunes, Spotify, iHeart Radio, GooglePlay Music, and many more.
I’d love you to be a part of this blog and our podcast. Questions you want answered? We’ll try our best and— trust me—if it’s something you’re wondering about, there are others wondering the same thing.
That’s all I have for you this week. I apologize for waiting so long to get back here, but here I am. I hope to hear from you—and thank you for being a supporter!
