I hear a lot about having to move to a "big city" if you want to make a name for yourself in music and that also you need to be young if you want to do it. I hardly think any of it is really true. I'm sure it would help somewhat going somewhere like LA, NYC, Nashville, etc. But I see a lot of musicians making names for themselves from random places. John Mayer is from Connecticut and he is in his mid thirties now. The Black Keys are from a town in Ohio and didn't start getting really successful till their 30's.
