I don't see it like that at all. There's plenty of room for different folks and different styles. I've been doing this a while and realize not everyone will care for the music I play, nor will it ever by my every day job. As I approach my retirement years, I'm just trying to broaden my base and looking for more frequent opportunities to play. Nothing more.
In addition, my sons are professional musicians so I'm frequently reminded when listening to them of how good I'm not. I have a small venue voice that relies more on the structure, feeling, and emotion of the song content than the strength of my tone. I can only control so much of that so I work hard at the things I can.
