The Piano

My mom and dad were divorced and living apart when I was trying to make my way in Nashville; and every time I went back home to visit San Antonio, I always stayed at my mom’s.

Piano

My mom and dad were divorced and living apart when I was trying to make my way in Nashville; and every time I went back home to visit San Antonio, I always stayed at my mom’s. This was a source of contention for my dad, who couldn’t understand why I didn’t split my time and stay at his house too. I told him, “Dad, you put too much pressure on me. I’m comfortable at Mom’s. Please stop asking.” He did stop, but one day said, “Wait ‘til you see what I just got for you!” He had bought an electric piano to try to woo me over to his house. It was a nice piano and I sat at it once or twice but never really played it. (more…)

Georgia - Breathing

I’m on the bus heading to our second show as the opening act on the summer Kenny Loggins tour and I have had a migraine headache for the last two days. About ten years ago, I remember having a migraine attack and having to perform that night. At soundcheck, I noticed the speakers and monitors were extra loud and the stage lights were uber-bright and shining into my eyes. I was terrified. I didn’t know how I was going to get through that show. I took a migraine pill and when I made it through, I realized that that pill plus all that good energy from a wonderfully receptive audience was somehow enough to relieve the pain. That made me stronger than ever. (more…)

The ‘Mouse Out of the Hole’ Theory

Posted on December 18, 2012 by Georgia in Blog, Georgia Blogs

The optimist in me believes that if you do what you love and just work hard enough, success will follow. But the realist in me knows I’d be leaving out a big piece of the equation: LUCK. Being in the right place at the right time. I want with all my heart to believe that […]

The optimist in me believes that if you do what you love and just work hard enough, success will follow. But the realist in me knows I’d be leaving out a big piece of the equation: LUCK. Being in the right place at the right time. I want with all my heart to believe that every talented person will have his or her day in the sun, but unfortunately, that’s not always the case. I’ve been in Nashville for twenty years and I’ve seen singers and writers far more talented than I leave town because they just couldn’t get a break. Did they leave too soon? There’s a saying in twelve-step groups: “Don’t quit five minutes before the miracle happens.” But what if you’ve given it years and the miracle just hasn’t happened? Do you keep your life on hold for the elusive “you MAY be the next big thing…” Or do you go have a quality life doing something else? (more…)
