niche be damned.

By
Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

For those of you who believe you should stay in your lane, and simply work your niche... never reaching out to that long shot.

Reach out... try something new... you'll never know how incredible it might be.

Boy... I wish I'd been at that concert.  What a great crossover by a great artist.

If you never do anything different, you never learn anything new. Just make sure you have the right support group to help you.

Great rendition of Stairway by Dolly.

Nice point Alan. We should never have a closed mind to trying something new. Obviously she is a very talented artist.

Alan- love the point you're making and I do love Dolly!  Ron and Alexandra Seigel make a good point in saying that you can have more than one niche and that you don't have to limit yourself.

If the song didn't have the word "heaven" in it she probably would not have sung it. LOL.

But I did like the banjo and violin immensely.

I have seen her a couple of times in person and the show was always a delight.  Saw her on the Grand ole' opery stage when I was in high school.  '82 it was the year the World's fair was in Tennessee and thankfully I got to see that too.

This was a delight and really what a great message to reach outside your lane too.

I would say she went out of her niche, but she definitely pulled that song into her niche.  There's always a new way to see something if you are willing to go there.

Hi Alan,  Thanks for sharing this beautiful rendition of Stairway to Heaven.  Dolly has a voice that lends itself to a variety of musical genres.  She definitely doesn't need to stay in any one niche.
