    CHRISTIAN MUSICIANS OFFER ADVICE ON HOW TO GET STARTED
    (Washington-AP) -- How can a newcomer get started in
    Christian music?
    Michael W. Smith says he launched his musical career more
    than 20 years ago by moving to Nashville, where he worked odd
    jobs until he got a break.
    But Phil Keaggy says today's aspiring Christian musicians
    should "bloom where they're planted" instead. He says there's so
    much music in and around Nashville that it's hard for a new
    artist to attract any attention.
    Michael Card agrees that heading to Nashville in search of
    a record contract probably isn't a good idea. He says Christian
    musicians who "want to do it for the right reasons" should play
    at their church, get a Web site and use today's software to
    record on their own.

    I'd love to be a Christian singer, but I don't think they'd want me. [​IMG]

    There's a lot to be said for Card's and Keaggy's words.

    More and more everyday, the best music isn't coming from Nashville or New York or L.A. or any of the places traditionally considered to be industry headquarters.

    With the explosion of music on the internet, I think you're going to see the balance of power shift in a big, big way.
