Thats the philosophy of country singer Steve Holy, who says he decided that being a country singer was a surer bet for success than working construction.
As he puts it, I chose country music over the family business so Id have something to fall back on.
Still, Holy keeps hammering away at construction during his off-hours. He took a four-year break between his debut album and his current release, Brand New Girlfriend, so that he could build his own house.
Although Holy doesnt get much musical inspiration from construction, he did learn the importance of making something structurally sound.
In his words, I wanted the album to be something that would stand up ten years from now and radio people tell me there may be five or six singles from it.
