The Backstage Journey

Welcome to the world of Country Music!

My name is Bonita. I’m beginning this blog in the early stages of my son, Eli’s, music career. Yes, we had raised brows when Eli announced he wanted to change his college major to music/business and pursue his dream of writing and performing Country Music. It’s become a family passion and lots of fun!

We’ve all heard of soccer moms, and stage Moms. I’ve been to many concerts and festivals where I’ve met amazing hard working moms manning merchandise tables, or cheering on their talented sons and daughters. Our bleachers are usually lawn chairs or stadium seats. As you know, nearly every one of the big stars, with award in hand and tears in their eyes, say”thanks Mom!”

I’m the band Mom for Eli Mosley and his band. I’m going to tell you what it’s really like behind the guitars, microphones and lights. We have rewarding experiences and heartbreak. It’s hard work, a determined vision, and teamwork. There is magic when the crowd comes alive and loves you back and pretty tough when they don’t! That’s what we’re going to talk about.

On the way, I hope to bring you stories from other Country Music moms- both aspiring and famous. This is going to be fun! Let’s get to know each other and enjoy the road trip together!

Blessings, Bonita
