Like patoranking, when asked on one of the interviews how he got into stardom, he replied and said ‘I kept singing everywhere’ then he talked about how he got his connection with Timaya (famous musician) and before he could say jack Robinson, his music was everywhere.
Sing in public whenever possible. Book as many events as you can to get your voice out there – you never know who will be listening in the audience. Sing at private parties, county fairs, store openings, rodeos, sporting events, talent shows, karaoke nights, and anywhere else that will have you, paid or not. Even if you don’t get spotted by a talent agent right away, you’re practicing your stage presence and getting used to being in front of a crowd.
