Those lyrics say it best, but this is my story…
First and foremost, I live in Nashville (“Music City”) and I have always had a strong passion for music & supporting local musicians. There are very few things in life that give me more joy than getting the chance to see an artist living their dream. I could live forever never making a dime, as long as I have music as a constant in my life. The meaning behind the name of this site “Shine On Music City” is very special to me. “Shine” being the name of my favorite song by Keith Urban. That song came into my life at the perfect time. I have been battling with Thyroid Cancer and thyroid issues for almost 3 years. Right after I had my first surgery in 2013, Keith Urban was playing a show at Legends Corner in Nashville. He left a lasting impression on me and I’ve spent the past 2 1/2 years following him and his music. He also inspired my career path in a profound way. Not only did I end up meeting Keith within a year of getting to see him perform live for the first time, but meeting him also inspired me to use my passion for music & start to really pursue jobs in the music industry
I’ve had many other inspirations that have helped lead me to where I am today, but Keith is the one that has left the biggest impact on me. I have yet to see another artist put 100% into every single performance and interact with his fans like he does. In my opinion, any musician that can be dedicated to their craft and keep pursuing their dream (even when it’s tough) deserves to be acknowledged and supported, and that’s where I come in. I want to put a spotlight on musicians & help them “shine”. The purpose of “Shine On Music City” is to give these hard-working musicians the recognition they deserve.
Living in Nashville, I have an amazing opportunity to get to hear live music & make connections with some incredible bands, singers & songwriters regularly. I want to share the amazing talent that each of these artists possess with all of you by “spotlighting” these artists and their lives in a meaningful way, as well as their upcoming events and projects.
