People used to say to me, “Only old people like the blues. If that’s what you wanna play, you’ve got a long hard road ahead of you. Do you wanna be in a bar band or make an “actual” living?”
When I started finding rock and roll, people said things like... “You’re turning your back on the blues?
You’re gonna lose a lot of fans with that... There’s no radio for what you’re doing. Rock and roll is dead.”
These are all things that got under my skin until I realized that the only voice I was obligated to listen to was my own. For me, playing music has always been a way to share something that brings joy to my life with others. It’s never been about making ALL the money in the world. It’s never been about anyone else’s opinion. It’s ALWAYS been about being joyful and feeling good outside of anyone’s box.
Just letting everyone know who is participating in Secret Shakedown Santa to check your emails. Everyone should be paired!
Remember, if you were paired with someone that involves international shipping, then be aware of the time it takes to travel. We want everyone to receive their gift by Christmas! Also, if you want to avoid international shipping costs, then emailing an e-gift card from amazon, Starbucks, iTunes, etc is also an option.
Thank you to all who participated!! #shakedownnation#tylerbryantandtheshakedown#secretsanta#shakedownsanta
