True story. I went to Nashville to pitch songs in the early 80's with a friend of mine named Len. We were fortunate to get a quick listen to our cassette tapes by some of the most successful music producers of that time, and with someone from ASCAP. Without exception they told us three things 1) I don't hear a hit 2) Your songs are good though, and you have potential 3) You need to go to the Blue Bird Cafe and listen to the songwriters there to learn what makes a song a hit.
We did that and continued to write, but life got in the way and we both got into tech and spent decades working and raising kids. I never let go of the dream, and I still think there is a place for every singer songwriter, even if it's not on a huge stage with a screaming crowd....

Lyrics

Country Singer
(Words and Music by Charlie Nault)


Someone’s got to fill the void between the big hits…
And dead air
Someone’s got to sing their heart out
While getting no where
It might as well be me
Cause all I want to be
Is a Country Singer singin on the radio
Just a Country singer singin on the radio

I won’t wear big diamond or travel the world
I’ll never be bothered by a bunch of screamin girls…no…
But that’s alright with me
Cause all I want to be
Is a Country Singer singin on the radio
Just a Country singer singin on the radio

Hey Mr. DJ would you spin my 45?
No I’m sorry it’s not out on compact disk
Well yes sir I’ve been to Nashville
Me and my friend Len
Stood all night in the Blue Bird’s Lounge
After every one in town
Said we could learn a few things there
When they turned us down
But I still think…

Someone’s got to fill the void between the big hits…
And dead air
Someone’s got to sing their heart out
While getting no where
It might as well be me
Cause all I want to be
Is a Country Singer singin on the radio
Just a Country singer singin on the radio
Now I’m a Country Singer singin on the radio
(Hey Mom!)
I’m a Country Singer singin on the radio…..
