What’s your favorite kind of sandwich?
My favorite kind of sandwich is probably from Subway. I get a 6” on flatbread, turkey, american cheese – toasted, then spinach, lettuce, tomato and a little ranch. If I’m feeling bold I’ll add salami too!
The Beatles or Elvis? Why?
Probably Elvis. My dad was an Elvis impersonator back in the day so I grew up hearing “Blue Suede Shoes” and him sounding like the real deal! I also sing a couple Elvis songs in my shows. Don’t get me wrong I had my fair share of Beatles Rock Band growing up, but there’s definitely nothing like the king!
Lyrics to live by?
One of my favorite Tyler Farr songs caught me off guard one time when he sang, “They don’t have rehab for heartbreak” and ever since then I always have that in the back of my mind. Never get involved with idiots because they don’t have rehab to fix you after that sort of thing!!
“Desert Island” album?
“The Woman I Am” Kellie Pickler. Such a great record.
What country music artists do you listen to the most?
Probably Brooks and Dunn. It’s hard not to feel something when you listen to them- happy or sad.
How would you describe your “sound”?
I’ve been told that if Chris Stapleton and Wynonna Judd had a baby you’d get me…I’ll take it!
Where do you see your musical career in 5 years?
I hope to be touring with a bigger artist, doing a lot of fairs and festivals, and also just writing and recording new music!
Are there any instruments you don’t play but wish you did? Why?
Probably fiddle or banjo. They are country to the core and they just sound so cool!
What was the best advice you have received?
“Always remember that good people get work” and “Give it all to God” -That last one is from my momma!
What advice would you give to yourself at the start of your musical career?
If I could go back to a few years ago I’d probably tell myself to be bold, be smart, and don’t take lip from people that don’t deserve your time. I let a few people walk all over me just because they were my boss at the time instead of standing up for myself and telling them where to take a hike. Always think highly of yourself even if you sometimes don’t believe it.
Where does most of your inspiration come from?
Most of my inspiration comes from the world. I’m a people watcher. I take in the world and spit out a country song!
What do you consider to be your biggest achievement in your career so far?
I’d say releasing two original songs. If you would have asked me a few years ago if I would release a song that I wrote for the world to hear I would’ve laughed in your face. It took a lot out of me to write those songs since I don’t really claim to be a songwriter, but I did it for no one else but myself and that makes me pretty proud! The reaction, messages and support I got behind the songs is enough to make a girl cry.
What’s on the horizon for you that you would like to share?
I have my next single “Prince Charming” coming out on Valentines Day and then I’ll be finishing up my first EP here within a few months. It’ll be set to release at some point in 2020 and that’s really exciting for me. Other than that, I’m just constantly on the road playing more shows at new venues across the country!
