Richie Carlisle never wanted to be famous.
After stumbling into the limelight five years ago, he soon found himself spectacularly crashing back out of it. Now, he spends his days working in a small music shop, attempting to live a quiet life as a part-time Dad.
But his fifteen minutes of fame has taken its toll. His inspiration for songwriting, music and life in general seems to have all but disappeared.
