I saw an interview with Kix Brooks recently where among other things he had this to say about songwriting:
"To be a professional songwriter, you're still competing with the best composers in the world. And you have to come to town and get thrown into the water and go to writers nights. (My emphasis - John) And you've gotta do some real serious prayer meetings with yourself and ask yourself, 'Is my music really as good as what these other guys are writing?'"
So this guy is recommending getting together with other writers? Kinda like going to a CSC meeting? Consider RSVPing to a meeting. www.meetup.com/vocalists-151 By the way, here are the qualifications of Kix Brooks who for the last 20 years was half of Brooks and Dunn.
Just sayin' that this is a guy who knows how to succeed.
Hope to see some of you tomorrow
