Hi Slaid,
I've been listening to your music since I was a little girl, and tonight I forced myself to finish my college applications (which I have been putting off for for months now) because of your music. which has gotten me through so many other situations in life. I told my dad I was gonna write you to inform you of that just so you know that your music can completely take a losing hand and somehow win! and he said you wouldn't reply. Please help me prove him wrong! Oh and also, you are still the best singer/songwriter I know of, and my whole family loves your music so much! thanks for having your music on spotify btw!! Much love from Corpus Christi!!
Sarah

Hi Sarah,
Thanks for taking the time to write, and congratulations on finishing your applications - surely the most disagreeable part of the college experience. When I was about to go to college all I wanted was to someday make music that pulled people through hard times, as Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie and Bruce Springsteen had given me the strength to pull through. I had no idea how to go about a career in music, but I bumbled my way through, and after many years of failure I've come to a place where someone like you would take the time to inform me that I've succeeded. It's deeply gratifying. Thanks.
Slaid
