but I think it's pretty sad that she would say, and her parents would agree, that's she'd quit high school and give up even a HS degree to become a "star". Unlike the real stars in the sky, those stars burn out and fade pretty fast.

That is not what she said, said she would like to finish H. S. degree on bus or on the road but yet get her Diploma. Maybe her dream will come true and at least she does have full family support. Ideally she probably would be better off if it waited a few years both age wise and education wise. But if it is her moment it may never come but once.

She should audition for American Idol. That would get her some exposure and the big dogs in the music industry would get a chance to hear her and possibly offer a record deal.

A GED on a bus is hardly the same important life shaping experience for the future that really attending high school is. It's the attending that's important. The diploma is important too. But how are you going to make friends for life on a bus? You're not - you're gonna make "yes men" and "ass kissers" and "groupies". You need a solid base before you leap.

And I'm not just pulling this stuff out of my hat.

I just wanted to encourage Bailey to go for her dreams. When I was her age I wanted to sing/act.I did on a limitied basis through school and church. There wasn't as many avenues as there are now. I went on to college, NOT WHERE MY HEART WAS OR IS!!!I did continue to write poetry as a creative outlet. One of them was taken, with the help of my lit prof. by the famous KY poet Joy Bale Boone and ended up being published. My point is, hang in there I am in my forties now and my life is nothing as i'd dreampt. You don't want to end up in my shoes. When you think you can't move one more muscle if it is meant for your life by the Lord, that muscle will move!GOOD LUCK!!!!

Bailey is a very sweet and secure young lady with a great deal of talent. She has a lot going for her including a very supportive family and her faith in God herself and in herself. I wish her the very best of luck in her pursuits.
