Friday night I performed a couple of songs accompanied by Guitar. One duet- hopelessly yours, Desperado, and Wind beneath my wings. There is something nice about singing a completely simple song adding a little more chest voice to my normally operatically trained voice. Then I got to thinking. I should go country!
Famous country singers are stinking rich and not so famous that they get stalked. How many country singers do you see on the cover of tabloids? Not very many. This may be because country singers are expected to be drugged and drunk which obliterates the shock factor.
Country singers can wear clothes. You wouldn’t have to gyrate around the stage like Brittney Spears. Just some tight jeans and cowboy boots.
Country fans are loyal. How many old pop singers are still appreciated for their contribution to their genre? Hardly none unless you count the one hit wonder show they have on VH1. Country singers, once famous, are loved no matter how many face lifts they get. Dolly Parton, Reba Mcyntire, are a couple of examples. Old, and still singing.
So, now all I need is a band and a contract. Any suggestions?
