Who or what is your musical inspiration?

I grew up singing country music, encourage by my Grandfather and my Dad. Some of my musical inspirations come from my love of country music, the stories and the true sincerity of the music. I love roots music and bluegrass as well, so I try to infuse that style within my own writing. One of my favorite artist of all time is Patty Loveless. Her voice is timeless and so soulful, she literally is the epitome of mountain soul. I also love Miranda Lambert, Gretchen Wilson, and Lainey Wilson!

What message do you try to convey through your music?

I try to convey the truth and sing from heart. Country music fans are some of the most loyal and honest fans in the world, and they can tell who is real and who is just full of it. I like to sing about the struggles of the human experience. I try to evoke emotion into all of my performances. I truly believe that country music is and has always been 3 chords and truth, and that is exactly what my fans are going to get from me. I will always give honesty in my writing and a sincere performance.

What would you do with $10,000?

We would invest in my music career. I have tried to make it in Nashville for many years, and I have been passed on by every major label at least twice. I hung up my microphone for several years because I just thought that things would never change, but now this girl is back making one last run at her dreams again. I am a proud American who still believes in the dream and 10,000 dollars would help me promote my album independently and enable to me to possibly tour this fall if I am lucky.
