I wasn’t exactly young that day I realized I wanted to be a full-time songwriter. I was in mid thirties and had no connections in the business. But, I knew no professional songwriters. And I had little money to support my dream…
12 years later, after much persistence, I get to hear artist like Lady Antebellum, BabyFace, Darius Rucker or Keith Urban singing my songs for thousands of folks!
If you ever doubt dreams can come true, remember if I can do it, anyone can.
Marty Dodson and I founded SongTown to share with you all the little pieces that go into craft and art of writing songs. And yes, the steps we’ve taking along the path to becoming professional songwriters. Hopefully as we share with you our journey, it will make yours a little easier. I know this beautiful community makes me feel inspired daily.
Thanks Chip Gall for sending me the video below of Darius Rucker and Keith Urban performing my song “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.” I never knew this video existed!
Write On! ~Clay
