“Why do you play Country Music at your events?”
I get asked this – every week!
Well, there are a few reasons…
I love the storytelling of the genre – it’s not all about losing your missus or your dog – though, to be fair there’s a fair bit of that! 😂
It motivates me to deliver at my peak – the tracks & playlists I use are curated to psychologically boost me & also can help me change the ‘energy’ of the room when needed. Anyone who has experienced my ‘Find Your Voice – LIVE!’ by Forging People day will attest to this! 😡 😢 😍
Finally, it’s just a bit of me! It tunes into who I am authentically & everything in my Personal Branding reflects who I am – ie ‘are you the guy with the cap 🧢 & the beard 🧔🏻- we want to book you!’ – it’s amazing how much of a memory hook it’s become!
I guess that’s the point really – just be YOU but AMPLIFIED!
It’s a lesson I took so long to learn – but now I thrive on it, built a career on it & launched a business on it – what do YOU want to be known for & what represents YOU? 🤔
I’ll leave you with this line from the phenomenal Cody Johnson song ‘Til You Can’t’ – YouTube link below – enjoy! 🤠
“If you got a chance, take it, take it while you got a chance.
If you got a dream, chase it, ’cause a dream won’t chase you back.
If you’re gonna love somebody, hold ’em as long and as strong and as close as you can…
‘Til you can’t” 💙
