Winning isn't everything! Ha, now that might sound like gibberish from a guy who just lost a songwriting contest, but I have facts to prove it :-). Do you remember David Cook, Kris Allen, or Lee DeWyze? Me neither. They're all American Idol winners. Their careers fizzled as quickly as bottle rockets on the 4th of July. But you do know Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, and Mandisa. All "losers" on American Idol. Oscar Winner, Grammy Nominee, and Grammy Winner (in that order). Interesting, huh? Yes, I know a few of the American Idol winners went on to do great things (Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia, Philip Philips, and Scott McCreedy). But just as many of the runner ups have done exceptionally well. My point being, it's not about winning. It's about what you do with the opportunity and platform you have been given.
"Street smart soul meets southern fried rock and roll. Imagine Cee Lo Green hanging out in Motown with The Allman Brothers. Soulful, passionate, musical, and fun! My new album, “Fact, Fiction, & Other Contradictions”, is at iTunes now! Help me get the word out! Like me at www.facebook.com/billybmusic, follow me @buchananbilly." - Billy Buchanan
