Will Moseley Needed A Single Year To Break Into Country Music

With his future continuing to unfold, Moseley revealed how he once gave himself a single year to land a spot in music before finding what he called a real job. Speaking with Parade, he explained, “A year was a good goal. It wasn’t unreachable. Looking back on this past year—because a year ago I graduated almost to the week—I hope it never runs out. I hope those years just keep rolling over. I think this journey has shown how much I truly love performing and playing music.” He insisted, “I hope it never ends.”

Destined to play music, Moseley added that even when he isn’t on stage – he still performs. “This is the only thing that even on an off day, even when I don’t have a show, I find myself with a guitar in my hand playing around, thinking of music, trying to write a song or trying to do something to do with music. It’s the only thing that I’ve been truly passionate about my whole life.”

With a love for music, it is only a matter of time before an aspiring artist is opening for Will Moseley.
