Testimony of "How God Births A Songwriter" 5/7/09

The Heart of North Carolina is home to Diane Guy Barnes, an American songwriter. This songwriting comes as quite the surprise as God leads her down unlikely paths, never having aspired to be one. She is amazed at God for doing this!

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet opens doors for the Indie Artist. We have possibilities at our fingertips with such a vehicle to get this great message out there. Online collaborations and in home studios tip the scales in favor of the 'little people' such as myself. I'm amazed by the net's possibilities. ...how else would a 'nobody' have their music heard? :) For me, it's a major blessing. We find our peers and mentors, collaborators and make polished products that speak in their own right.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If the right opportunity presented itself...one made in Heaven.
Your influences?
Daddy had his music playing. It was quite the collection of country, western and bluegrass records. As I grew older I began to suspect this music coursed through my veins as well. Even so, I'm flexible. Most songs I write could be bent into a variety of genres. But to answer the question- first, there's God.

Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin, Elvis, Dolly, Loretta, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, The Judds, Eagles, Marty Robins, John Prine to name a few.
Favorite spot?
The Blue Ridge Mountains remain an all-time favorite place. I recently fell in love with Cincinnatti. I love seeing new places -- I want to see it all. I'd like to see Nashville then again any beach at all will do.

My absolute favorite place-mama's house on her big wrap around southern style front porch swing...especially blissful with coffee and laughter...or if it's raining. :)

My ultimate favotite spot is being in the presence of God. Nothing like it......
Equipment used:
Cakewalk Music Creator 3, ATR20 mic.
Anything else...?
I give God credit and glory for everything. Without Him, I am soooo lost and undone.
