Welcome to Bridget & Bruce,
a yearlong campaign to sing with the Boss.

I grew up in a place a lot like the place Bruce grew up in. Because of that, I was drawn to his music at a very young age. It’s safe to say that Bruce taught me to dream.

I realized that I had a gift for music around the age of 5. By high school it was apparent that like many of the characters in Bruce’s songs, I would have to leave everything I know to make this crazy dream reality.

In 2002 I enrolled at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. I came down to Nashville like many do, young and with stars in my eyes. Like most of those people, I dreamed of platinum records, awards, getting a song on the radio, and simply making music for a living.

In 2006 I graduated with a degree in Commercial Music, Vocal Performance. It was then that reality set in. It’s been harder to “make it” than I ever imagined.

One of the reasons I always wanted to make it was because above all else, I wanted to meet and sing with Bruce. I would not only dream of getting a Grammy, I would dream that Bruce would be the one to give it for me. And in this crazy dream Bruce and I would get to talking and decide we would collaborate. This, for me, would be worth more than any award imaginable.

As we all know, times are tough. Not just for the music industry, but for everyone. That’s where this blog comes in.

If I never reach country super stardom, or have a #1 record, I can live with that. However, I cannot say my life is complete without singing with the Boss.

Week by week I will be recording and posting my favorite songs, in hopes that Bruce will somehow hear them and grant me my wish. I’m also asking you readers for song suggestions…and eventually there may even be a petition!

I am nothing out of the ordinary in terms of people. I am a common person. But I am who Bruce’s music touches every day and for that reason I am and always have been so drawn to him. His music is the soundtrack to my life. Bruce taught me what it was to dream, and now I’m hoping he can make my dreams reality. So, Mr. Springsteen, can I sing with you?
