“One Man Band Performing At An Empty Cajun Restaurant”
photograph by Taylor J.
Several months ago I was invited to dinner with some family. They took me to a cajun restaurant here in middle Tennessee. It was a very small yellow brick building in the middle of nowhere. When we entered the a waitress asked us if we had seen any cows loose on the road. We said no, she said good. Inside there were only 6 or 7 tables to eat at. When I said small building I meant small. There was one cook, one waitress and one other table of guests. After we ordered our food a man entered with a guitar and a keyboard and began to play old country songs. He was very lively and really seemed to enjoy himself even with the small crowd. At first I really admired him for putting so much effort in such a small show. Then I realized he wasn’t putting on anything. He just loved his craft and wanted to play music. It didn’t matter to him how many people were around. That really resonated with me and has stuck with me ever since.
