To celebrate the season premiere of “Nashville” tonight (side note: FINALLY!), we thought it would be fun to do an astrology post set in magical Music City. Which sign is busking on Broadway? Which sign is managing a world tour? Which sign is a stylist to the stars? Read on to find out…
Aries (March 21st-April 19th): Fronting a hardcore rock n’ roll band and getting visibly annoyed every time an audience member requests “Chattahoochee.”
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): Waiting tables at a midtown bistro at night and spending every day practicing their songs and working up the courage to actually get on stage.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): Working as a columnist for Nashville Scene, you’ll find them at every event, concert, and festival the city has to offer, even on their days off.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): A fixture at local songwriters’ nights, where they’ve gained a following for their emotionally raw (but still catchy!) country tunes.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Decked out in sequined cowboy boots and busking on Broadway, singing at coffeehouse open mics, strumming on the porch — basically wherever they can find a chance to perform.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): Managing the world tour of a country superstar, juggling travel schedules, dressing room requests, and misbehaving roadies like a pro.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): Working as a stylist/confidante for up and coming country singers, Libra handles everything from pre-performance meltdowns to ripped rhinestone cutoffs.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): Playing an acoustic set in a small, dark bar, Scorpio is pursuing their musical dreams away from the neon lights of Broadway.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): You’ll find Sagg first in line for every open audition, talent contest, and industry meet and greet, stopping at nothing to make their big dreams come true.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): Sick of dealing with the bureaucracy of Music Row, Capricorn is starting their own music label/empire, allowing them to manage, produce, and promote themselves.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): Starting a weekly songwriter’s night at the coffee shop where they work, trying to help out a coworker who wants to break into the music business.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): Pisces can be hard to spot, but they’re easy to hear: they’re working as an in-demand session musician, lending their talent to hit songs and intimate performances.
