It is about there being no real need to worry as worrying does not achieve anything. It was written by Danish lyricist Nana Larsen.
My debut album “A long time coming”…
has been a dream for many many years. Having been a struggling singer trying to find her niche it’s a massive achievement to finally have my music moving in the right direction and to find where I finally fit with country being a huge passion…
I currently live in the UK, where Country Music scene is growing rapidly. The country music scene in the UK is a small one but has grown in recent years. Today, according to British Phonographic Industry (BPI) figures, country music represents 2.3% of the total UK album market, its highest level in nine years. Nashville stars now routinely play London’s Country 2 Country festival.
Other factors that have helped drive up country music include the success of the television show Nashville, which airs on More4, and the importing of the city’s biggest country stars to the UK, including an uproariously received appearance by Dolly Parton at Glastonbury two years ago.
Of course, country music originated from British folk ballads that made their way across the Atlantic. There they were passed down among generations, resulting in early string music played at home in the Appalachian mountains and other rural regions of the south and midwest before migrating to cities early last century. The British Invasion is often credited with reintroducing blues music to American audiences, but many of those bands, from the Beatles to the Rolling Stones to the Kinks, were also enamored with country stars and replicated their music through covers or their own take on the music.
I love performing live…
which is a bonus as I also totally enjoy all the other areas of working in the music industry, the video’s, studio work, and promotion, as well as running my own small independent label, Silva Penny Records, and being supported along the way by Keep it Country TV. https://www.facebook.com/Keep-It-Country-TV-824935650945811/
Carrie Underwood, I would love to spend time with the artist who I consider to be one of my biggest idols I feel she is one of the biggest talents our generation has in country music.
