‘Bachelorette’ Contestant’s Lost Love Leads to Country Music
Ty Brown, 'The Bachelorette' contestant who was booted from the show earlier this week, didn't find true love with Ali Fedotowsky, but he did find a new career opportunity. The Franklin, Tenn. native, who had dabbled in music while working full-time in medical sales prior to his appearance on the hit ABC reality show, now says he will devote all his time to his musical aspirations -- thanks, in part, to 'The Bachelorette.'
"On the second episode, I played the first verse and the chorus to this song ['Living in the Moment'] on the beach and got such a great response," he tells CMT. "So when I got back to Nashville, I reworked it with [songwriter] Dave Turnbull and we're so excited about the hype it's been getting now."
Ty, who was a natural in front of the 'Bachelorette' cameras, has a knack for entertaining. But now he's building his talent in another aspect of the music business. "My forte is performing," he explains. "But I've found out that when I can come up with song ideas, it's like wildfire."
While admittedly disappointed at being eliminated from the show, the 31-year old says he keeps it all in perspective. "Did I think Ali and I would hit it off and fall in love on 'The Bachelorette'? I don't know. Maybe I did," he says. "It was fun being on the show, but now it's an opportunity for me to follow my dreams. I was doing music before the show, but I just hadn't given it 150 percent."
Ty might even include his experience with Ali in one of his tunes. "If I did, it would be about the choices we make. And why we make the choices we make. Ali had a tough decision to make, and it looked like maybe she regretted her choice. So that would make a good song."
The still-single bachelor has posted several of his songs on his website.
