"It's so exciting," said Goss, who will open for Lynn at the concert.For Goss, this is a celebration of both true love and of a lifetime commitment.The love of her life is music.It's one she's always had, whether as a young girl singing in church or while serenading her sorority sisters at Troy University because the acoustics in the stairwell were so good."I just always knew that was what I wanted to do," she said."I remember going with a bunch of my friends to hear Alabama (the country group) play in 1982, and just thinking how cool it would be to be on stage, playing your music for all those people."The desire was there from the beginning.The commitment didn't come until later.Goss, who graduated from Montgomery Elementary and then Alabama Christian Academy before going to Troy, worked at first in Nashville as a receptionist at Warner Bros. Records and then at EMI Publishing.She was happy just to be around the music she loved.Music remained her hobby in Nashville.Goss wrote songs, played music and answered phones.Then one day Stephony Smith, a top Nashville songwriter, heard some of the songs that Goss had written and told her they were good -- so good that she should quit her job and start writing songs for a living."Next day, I went into this job where I was completely happy and where I had these great benefits and turned in my notice so I could start waiting tables and washing dishes," she said.She embraced her new career, even knowing how fickle it could be."This business is completely hard, and anyone wanting to do it needs to know that you have to pretty much sacrifice everything," she said.Goss had a cut on Brooks' and Dunn's Grammy-nominated album, "Hillbilly Deluxe."She was signed to a songwriting deal at EMI Music Publishing."It's hard to describe how cool it is to be signed to a songwriting job at the place you'd been working as a receptionist before you left to become a songwriter," she said.She has since been signed to a songwriting deal with Curb, the record company that's home to performers such as Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes and Rodney Adkins."Basically, getting a publishing deal in town is like getting drafted for the NFL, but you are still on the sidelines and not a star player yet," she said.But Goss has no doubts how successful she is."I just don't know how much more successful you can be than being able to do something you love to do every day," she said.Country recording artist Tiffany Goss plays a show in Nashville, Tenn.
