This week I have family from out of town visiting with me. We all went to see The Package Tour together and while there, they got to share in the whole pre-show backstage and post show tour bus excitement. They got to watch and learn while I was doing an interview and they were blown away when they saw how much work goes into producing and remixing all the songs played each week. These personal family music experiences made me think about musical families in the biz. For instance, going way back you had the Osmond Family, the Jackson Family and Sonny & Cher (husband & wife). Christina Aguilera was married to her label A&R Executive, Jessica & Ashlee Simpson were managed by their father,Beyonce' was managed by her dad and all her fashions were designed by her mom. Miley Cyrus was first introduced to the world by her than successful dad Billy RayTaylor Swift's family uprooted their whole life to move to Nashville just so she could pursue her dreams and Bruno Mars musical genius comes from performing at a young age with a very musical family. I know these examples are just the tip of the iceberg but when my family is hanging out in the studio with me this weekend, I'll be thinking of all these people and the power of family and music!
