The Stage

He played the acoustic guitar with what seemed to be pure ease, yet his fans knew better. It had taken him years to perfect his chords, his music. Once he had done so, it still took a lot of patience to really get noticed even with the local clubs and bars, Still, music was in his blood, in his heart ans soul. He strummed the chords he had practiced for so long. This was it. Tonight was the night.

He stepped out onto the stage, a brief smile crossed his lips as his fans cheered him on from the bleachers surrounding the stage. This was no longer the small times. No more bars, no more small clubs or open mic nights. This was the big leagues of the country music stars who started right here on this very stage, just as he was, tonight.
