I got to spend part of the morning having coffee with a couple who asked me a rather startling question.
Why do you do music? Why do you want to succeed?
And it stopped me in my tracks for a bit.
I had to think about this question. Why, indeed?
Why do I want all this frustration, all these empty shows, all this hard work? What’s the point?
As I sipped my coffee and reflected for a moment, the answer formed.
“I want to help people. I want more so I can give more.”
My friend’s eyes lit up and he said, “Now you’re thinking.”
And the more I do, the more I think about what I could give, what I could do with great success.
There’s an amazing school in Tuscaloosa, Alabama that I would just love to give an absurd amount of money to.
There’s my mother, who instilled this love of music and art in my heart in the first place that I would love to set up for the rest of her life.
There’s my own family, that I would just love to make sure is provided for in every way I can think of.
There are so many, many things that I want to give to.
I realized that I want more so I can give more.
And my God, how fun will that be?
I can’t wait to give more than I can now.
And I am so thankful for all of you who read these silly posts and support my music.
Every thing you do puts me one step further to great deeds.
