Why country music ?
~ I have always been drawn to the story telling aspect of country music. As a writer, country music gave me an outlet to tell my stories.
If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ It would be interesting to hear Johnny Cash and June Carter sing together again.
What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ They all are special because they all represent different milestones in my life. “High On The Good Times” was my debut single in Nashville. I learned so much from it and it represents new beginnings for me. “Thank God It Didn’t Work Out” is the song where I found my voice as a writer and artist and I’m so excited to have officially released this as my latest single.

Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ Ashley Gorley because he has written so many of my favorite songs that have inspired me as a writer.
What is the one thing that readers/fans would be surprised to know about you?
~ I taught myself how to do my own makeup and love to experiment with it for shows!
Give us one country song you never want to hear on radio anymore and tell us why.
~ "Wagon Wheel" because I’ve played it millions of times in Nashville. (Just kidding, I still love it though!)
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and...you wish they would?
"What charity or organization are you passionate about?"
The Special Olympics is an incredible organization. I have a cousin who has participated in the Special Olympics for years. He looks forwards to it every year. This organization focuses on inclusion and empowerment as they encourage everyone to focus on each of their gifts and abilities.
Describe the ultimate recording studio
~ My dream studio would have a huge LIVE room and a vocal booth with lots of room to dance around in while recording :)
Johnny or June ?
~ June. Not only was she a pioneer for women in country music, but she was an incredibly strong woman! She was a talented writer and a force to be reckoned with.
Are you still nervous before going on stage and if so, do you use any "rituals" to calm you nerves.
~ I typically don’t get nervous before shows anymore, but I try to exercise the morning of a show to clear my head. I also have a “Pre-Show Pre-Game” playlist that I play and dance to while getting ready for a show. Those two things always make me feel like I can conquer the world!
What was the most memorable day in your musical career and tell us why.
~ The most memorable day musically was was my last hometown show. I’m usually on the road playing or performing at multiple venues in Nashville. It was so nice to look into the crowd and see all of my friends and family in the crowd who have supported me from the beginning.
