I found this on the Internet. I think it was dated 2019. Author Eric Normand. This was part of his response on should a person move to Nashville to pursue their Music Career.
"Nashville is oversaturated with people trying to get ahead in the Music Business. There are more players and singers that there is work for them. This high level of competitiveness makes for some shark infested waters. While there are a lot of genuinely nice people that will go out of their way to help you, there are others that are less than helpful or sincere who might show some interest but have ulterior motives in mind. There is also and element of territoriality, as many Musicians are trying to protect their gigs. Of course, this is true everywhere, just be forewarned."
