One man’s trash is another man’s treasure is a cliche that is used quite often. Like all cliche’s however there is basis for its origin. This can also apply to art. Show business is a business not for the thin skinned and as artists, it is important not to get discouraged. I often think about songs that have a back story of how they were hated by quote unquote industry experts but ended up becoming huge hits. Two of my favorite examples of this are “Forget Me Nots” by Patrice Rushen, whose record label hated that piece but here 40 years later those hand claps in the introduction are your cue to get on the dance floor. The second being, “Whiskey Lullaby” by Brad Paisley and Allison Krauss. The writers of that song were told over and over again how horrible it was, only for it to be a CMA Song of the Year. All art is subjective and songs will find the audience that is meant to hear them.
