Lights Are Always On In Nashville - Copyright 2013 Amy S. Otey & Alex V. Otey

Fell in love with the city her first time down
Took a flight, saw the sights, but got her feet back on the ground
She loves Loretta and all the country stars
Buys a ticket to the Ryman, wants to hear those steel guitars
And working the tables while she's dreaming 'bout her songs She thinks about why she came

'cause the lights are always on in Nashville
and you can always find a song, in the Music City

you are never alone in Nashville
'cause the music will surround your heart...

She keeps her day job 'cause there's a long way to go
But, maybe someday she'll hear her music on the radio
And it's hard to keep the faith waiting for a break
Every ounce of courage, and a lot of give & take

Just when she thinks she can't face another day, She thinks about why she came


With her guitar in hand on Lower Broadway
She sees those Nashville lights, her hope doesn't fade
it shines, it shines, it shines


This song has a good feel too it. The instrumentation, vocal arrangement and overall production were well suited for this song. The lyrics tell a story, which is what Country music is all about. The song has an "Old Country" feel too it, which is refreshing to listen to in this genre. Overall it was well produced and written.

A well done country song! To hear the Vocalist and understand each word is what makes the piece work! Great balance of the production and well arranged. Great work overall!
