Nominated for: Best Country
Location: Oakville Ontario Canada
What was the first thing that came to mind when you learned you were nominated? The first thing that came to mind was “wow, I just won for best country rock song with my song ONE DAY at the Akademia Music Awards in Los Angeles and now a nomination at the TIMA Awards. Then I ran over and told my fiancee about it and she was thrilled for me.
What will you do if you win? Certainly will be negotiating for a publishing deal with a major label and spread it all over social media and thousands of twitter fans.
Why should you win? This is a tough question to answer without coming off cocky but I’ll try. I believe all the nominees deserve much praise and support for achieving this accomplishment. I can say with myself, I truly believe with all my heart and soul that I’ve been given this incredible gift from my Lord and savior with the ability to write songs at a very high level. I don’t believe you can teach someone to write great songs, you either can or you can’t. I believe Country now is yearning for the modern Country rock sound and I feel my songs encompass that commercial sound that the market today is looking for with strong hooks and lyrics. As all the rich boys say on Shark Tank, for this reason, I feel my songs could win.
Other comments? I would rooting for all the nominees, I’m sure they have all worked very hard to put their best foot forward with a lot of sacrifice.
