Canadian country star Dean Brody is a major success now, but when he was just starting out as a songwriter, he says there were a lot of failures.
"I think of my early songwriting days, I wrote some terrible songs, like shitty songs," the 41-year-old "Upside down" singer told the Huffington Post Canada in the video above.
"So... you learn from your mistakes until you get better... certainly as a songwriter, my failures have made me better."
The artist has certainly come a long way from performing piano recitals and, as he recalled, forgetting his chords in front of an audience. On Oct. 21, Brody released his sixth studio album, "Beautiful Freakshow."
