My name is Brett Matthew West. For the last 25 years, I have been a Freelance Writer here in Nashville. To tell the truth, I have also made a fairly good living doing so. Over the years, I have made connections to many Country Musicians here in Music City ranging from those just trying to get started in the business to some of the biggest names out there today.
But, Nashville is so much more than the music. It is an unique adventure, and there is a whole lot more to my hometown than you may be aware of. For instance, we have the Fontanel, Hall of Famer Barbara Mandrell’s one-time home, Belle Meade, and the Bluebird Café, just to begin naming attractions found here.
That small listing does not include Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, Third and Lindsley, the 2016 People’s Choice Award-winner for Best Small Venue in Nashville, the historic Ryman Auditorium, or even the world famous Grand Ole Opry, which are also well known claims to fame for our fair city.
I began this blog on December 1, 2016 as my way of chronicling for you, the reader, what life for me is all about in this marvelous town I get to call home.
Some of you may be familiar with a tad of my online creations. I have a rather extensive following in several genres for stories, articles, essays, and even poems I have penned. Confidentially, I have also been published in several newspapers and magazines around the United States.
Beginning this new journey together, I welcome one and all to nashvillefreelancer. As I like to tell my readers: sit back, relax, kick your shoes off, prop your feet up, and enjoy! It’s going to be a tremendous ride!
Some times I may get up close and real personal with my ramblings. Occasionally, I might even state my opinions, for the hill of beans they may be worth. However, I will always present Nashville as I live it from day to day.
Now that you have scanned my About page, I strongly encourage you to dive headfirst into my blog. You may be amazed at what you will find here, be it about Country music, Nashville, or maybe even one of my original stories, poems, essays, or any number of other fascinating reads.
Go ahead! What are you waiting for? You know you want to. Curiosity may take you there but it is the quality that will keep you there.
