Must be all these Belmont/MTSU graduates that can't get a job at one of the other hundred studios in and around Nashville paying minimum wage. Save your money kids because one of two things are going to happen: You're going to be an unpaid intern for several years before they offer you a minimum wage job or you get recruited to be a stage hand for someone like crew one.
Sure, there are exceptions but remember: it's about who you know and who they know not what you know about audio. Your degree means nothing and like thousands of other people around Nashville like you, I have one too.
