Letter from Nash Vegas

When I wrote this song, the message felt strong. I just wonder who had to write this type of letter to someone they loved because they had to let go so they could find themselves. Good luck to everyone trying to “make it.” Whether you are outside of America or in New York, Los Angeles, Austin, Kansas City, St. Louis, New Orleans or the beautiful Nash Vegas…keep pressing on. Let the whole world know you exist. Your music will speak to someone.

When I arrived in Nashville
I didn’t have a dime.
Spent everything I had to fly
over small towns
and county lines.

I wandered through
the streets at night
blinded by the lights.
Left so I could find myself,
I thought you needed time.

And it was here-where fear
didn’t plague my mind.
At a time-when I thought
I was wasting my life.
Good things-were coming
up ahead in time.
And I was only-one-step-behind.

Another lost audition
only made me fight.
Determined I would
make it here.
Under these
Nash Vegas lights.

Soon people came to hear me.
They didn’t notice my battle scars.
From the finest clubs in Midtown
to the loneliest late night bars.

And it was here-where fear
didn’t plague my mind.
At a time-when with you
I was losing my mind.
Good things-were coming
up ahead in time.
And I was only-one-step-behind.

I’m sending this last letter
to let you know I’m fine.
I will leave no return address,
won’t find me through the vine.

Wool suits with big deep pockets,
now my partners in rhyme.
So look for me within the stars,
I’m somewhere in the sky.

And it was here-where fear
didn’t plague my mind.
At a time-when I had to
leave you behind.
Good things-were coming
up ahead in time.
And I was only-one-step-behind.
