It looked like Buddy Jewell was on his way. After winning the inaugural season of “Nashville Star” beating out, among others, a young lady named Miranda Lambert, he hit the charts with two top 10 hits, “Help Pour Out the Rain” and “Sweet Southern Comfort”. Then it all stopped. What happened?

He recently discussed his career with Nashville Scene magazine.

“It was the things that I’d found out about the music business … I wasn’t as enamored with it after I got in the middle of it as I was before the show. My record debut was No. 1 on the [country] charts, 13 on the pop charts. As it is with Nashville, you’re only as good as your last project. I’ve actually had to pray to God to give me the willingness to forgive some people for making some bad decisions about my career.”

In other words, the hits stopped coming. While he still does perform most of his attention now is focused on his new business venture.

He and his wife Tene actually own Peace, Love & Little Donuts, which is part of a Pittsburgh-based franchise.
