They call Nashville the 10 year town.

It is very rare that anyone has any overnight success, and you need to chip away at it for your shot to make it big. People move their when they are kids with only a dream, a guitar and barley any money. But, when they do make it, they come into our lives, bring us the music that effects us, changes us and inspires us.

Country music is the greatest genre of music in the world, and we are all thankful to be part of it.

What if some of our favorite singers never actually "made" it, though? What do you think they would be doing with their lives? We decided to come up with and have some fun and come up with what some of your favorite country stars would be doing if they didn't have dreams to become singers. *Obviously, we are close.*
