"Somebody Everybody Listens To" by Suzanne Supplee

Somebody Everybody Listens ToI've come to love novels about music. Not musically talented myself I am probably living vicariously through these books but who cares for the span of the book at least I can feel what it's like to have a wonderful singing voice or be a violin Virtuosity etc.. "Somebody Everybody Listens To" is an inspiring never-give-up story with a very real look at how hard it can be to make it in the music business.

Retta Lee Jones can sing like a dream. All she wants to do is leave her small Tennessee hometown and head for the big lights of Nashville. She quickly learns that making it in Nashville will not be so easy. With the odds stacked against her and one setback after another will her ambition be enough?

I enjoyed Suzanne Supplee's easy-flow writing style and loved the interesting facts on different country stars that she began each chapter with. It was also fun to see how she incorporated a song title from each of those country stars to name each chapter.

It was nice to see a realistic portrayal of Retta's journey to achieving her dreams rather than the sugar-coated story lines so often written. I imagine that even with the setbacks that Retta faces that most singers would find it even harder to make it in Nashville. Still this is a quick delicious read with lots of fun facts for those country music lovers out there.

didn't like it it was ok liked it really liked it it was amazing (my current rating)
