It’s football season, so I’ve been going through the highs and lows of my Arkansas Razorbacks and Arkansas State Red Wolves. I have football on the brain. I love football (and I have the surgical scars on my knee to prove it). Anyway, it hit me the other day that we’re all walk-on players. (Walk-on players are on the team, but NOT on scholarship.) If walk-on proves his worth on the practice field, he will be given an opportunity to see playing time during a game. If he does well, he may receive a coveted scholarship the next season.
Likewise, we come to Music City as walk-ons. We’re not on scholarship- nobody is paying us to play. We hit the practice field- we write and play out. If we prove our worth , we see some action “in the game” – our song gets pitched to an artist, we write with a pro writer, we get some indie cuts, etc. If we prove our worth in the game, we might receive a scholarship- a publishing deal, a major cut, etc.
Good luck. Play hard. And, most of all, enjoy the game!
