    Ive recently started to pursue my music career in country music. I was wondering should I go back to the cowboy hat that I once wore or stick with the black hat. What look would be best fitting for me?

      If you need ask you have answered you question. If that white straw xxxxxxxxx is not in you it should not be on you.  If that black beaver or other felt type black hat is not your friend do not wear for others.
      Our hats are something about us. God bless that it changes. I once owned 33 hats from 33 countries. I gave them to my ladies, and now have few left. If you have never watered a horse with you hat, you do not know it. If you have never pulled it low and kind of tilted your head into a snow storm, you do not know it. If you never took it off so you could swirl a small gal in a dance, you do not know it. If your neck has never been save from the sun because of it, you do not know it. If you have never cleaned your boots on the back of your pants, wiped them on a mat, and taken your hat off and said "pleasure ma'am" do not where our hat.

        LOL arent you wearing a suit in your pic? I grew up on a farm, but music today isn't about how good you sound, its about your style and your marketing skills...I'm sure I have more right to wear a cowboy hat then most people ever will...Todays industry is about how you look, and what looks best, reason Im asking the ladies and not the guys(you)....

          And another thing for the city slickers...A country boy isnt about having watered a  horse with your hat, or pulling it over your face to keep the cold off...Them things might make for good stories lol but thats not what the hat stands for...Anyone can wear one, just because someone has wore it their whole life like maybe you, that has watered their horse or kept the sun off your neck  lol doesn't mean that you fit the role of what it stands for because it's not about what you've done with your hat, it's about who you are as a person that gives you the right to wear the hat....I'm from one of the smallest towns, but if i saw a city boy wearing a cowboy hat, i wouldnt say oh he doesnt deserve to wear it because he hasnt watered a horse with it lol thats almost the dumbest thing i've heard, if he's a gentleman, treats a lady right, longs for the country, then he has just as much right to wear it if he wants to...

    It really doesn't matter what you wear on your head if you are a good singer.

      Well I'm not too bad, these days its more about how you market yourself. I've learned fast when I moved to cali its about image and networking when it comes to making it far. That's why a lot of the people you hear live aren't as good as they sound on recording. Johnny Cash wasn't a great singer, he was a great song writer and knew how to market himself. He's my favorite singer, the one I grew up listening to but he was never a great vocalist. His image was how he made fans love him for who he was because his image was real. That was then and this is now..Times have changed a lot, you still don't have to be a good singer now of days but the image, marketing, and networking are the things that get your name out there.
