It’s been almost a year since Damon Curtis left behind a steady paycheck to focus on his passion for country music.
“I sat behind a desk all day, every day… and it finally got to a point to where it was like, ‘Am I going to take this music thing serious?'” Curtis, 29, said.
In April of 2018, Curtis, a Moulton native, took his career in music full-time.
“It was a real change,” Curtis said. “I went from making a decent living to eating ramen noodles and stuff again.”
Looking back, Curtis said he would do everything exactly the same.
“If I could take anything back from all this, it’s that I would have quit a lot sooner to chase this dream, and that’s not saying anything bad on my old job,” Curtis said. “This is where my heart is, this is my passion, I wish I would have gotten a jump start on this a lot sooner.”
George Strait, Keith Whitely and Randy Rogers are some of his country idols, Curtis said.
“You can expect a bunch of original songs and a bunch of covers,” Curtis said. “I’ll be telling stories about my songs and where I come from… it’ll be a good time.”
