Fact: 97.7% of songwriters will never write a commercially successful song!
I would be willing to bet there are great songs in the dresser drawers of many Alabama songwriters. Some awesome with rip-my-heart-out lyrics, and melodies that fit perfectly and chord structures arranged better than anything that you will hear on radio.
There are others who have wonderful songs half completed. If you can’t complete them, why not find a writing partner?
Alabama has great songwriters. I have traveled over much of God’s green planet and folks everywhere know of our songwriters. The problem seems to be that Alabama songwriters don’t know how good they are. Those songs in that dresser drawer are to be heard. That half-written song will never be enjoyed if it is not finished.
Think about this, as long as that song stays in that dresser drawer you won’t earn a penny from it.
I have said it before and I will say it again now, Success=Great Song.
