Susan Gibson – Wide Open Spaces & Creative Constraints

May 25, 2022

As creatives, we are constantly battling things like expectations, comparison, and perfectionism. Susan, a creative veteran, vulnerably shares her experience with songwriting, touring, and writing one of the most popular country songs of all time, “Wide Open Spaces,” for the Dixie Chicks.

Susan Gibson was born in Fridley, Minnesota, and is a Wimberley, Texas-based singer and songwriter who has released six solo albums and tours the nation. Gibson was the lead singer for the alternative country band, The Groobees, and is the writer of the Dixie Chicks hit “Wide Open Spaces”.

We discuss:

  • Amateur vs. professional
  • Does every wave eventually hit the shore?
  • Making without knowing what’s next?
  • Why we resist the things we adore
  • The creative muscle
