An instant mood picker-upper is reading quotes: it works every time! And that they give you motivation and are thought provoking come as bonuses. Here are some of the favorites I found today:

Work Out To Country Music!

I received a newsletter from Pandora where they had listed some stations with music you can work out to - a country station too! I think that is a great idea!

Where Everyone Is Someone

It may sound simple and it may sound general, but everyone is someone in Nashville. What I mean is, that the chance of a VIP person being right next to you wherever you are is extremely big.  There are celebrities living here that have made this city their home because of the small town feel of it and they can walk around pretty much unnoticed if they want to and blend in with the crowd, because the crowd is so used to having someone of high dignity show up every now and then.  There are VIPs that can go unnoticed too, because they work behind the scenes and not in front of a camera or in the spotlight. So, be careful what you say, where you say it and how you say it, because Emmylou Harris' assistant or her road manager can sit right next to you. Not that anyone would have anything else but good things to say about her, but anyway.

"Nashville - the city where everyone is someone, so natural that every somebody is one in the crowd."

All Kinds of Music in Nashville - But Country is My Kind of Music!

Nashville has the nickname Music City. That is because there is not only country music here.  There is an excellent Blues Club, a Symphonic Orchestra, Punk, Southern Rock and Hip Hop and everything in between. So, if you are a country music enthusiast or country artist, it pays off to do your research or ask someone that already has been here for a while BEFORE your visit. Or else you might end up having spent your own (or somebody else's) hard earned money on something like this:

That's Coast 2 Coast Live, a competition held ten times monthly in cities all over the US. It frequently stops by Nashville as well. If you ask me, I'd rather do something else, like singing a Hank Williams, Sr. song on a street corner, because country is my kind of music! :-)


PS. If you by chance are a Hip Hop artist or artist in a similar genre, you can sign up for this competition here, but there is an application fee involved as well.
