10 Things About ME

 

Hey ya'll! Welcome to my site. I am so glad you are here and I'm looking forward to sharing a blog post with you starting every Monday of each week! To kick things off, here is a little bit about me.

 

10 Things About Me:

1.) Where did you grow up?

 -I was born and raised in Athens, Alabama. I went to a small high school called West Limestone. I grew up on a chicken and cattle farm and was immersed into the simple southern way of life. 

 

 

 

2.) What do you want to be?

-I want to be a songwriter. Songwriting is my escape. It helps me express my feelings through paper and I realized at a young age that my songs could relate to others maybe going through the same thing in life. 

 

 

 

3.) When did you start songwriting?

-I started playing guitar at 8 years old. My mom would take me to guitar lessons weekly after school and I fell in love with it. The guitar is what drove me to creating and writing songs. I wrote my first song when I was 10. I still remember some of it, sadly (because it was terribly written LOL). The first song I ever wrote was called "Would You still Love Me." Thank goodness my mom was the only one that heard it. 

 

 

4.) How often do you travel to Nashville?

-I travel to Nashville at least twice a week to co-write. I have written with some amazing people in the industry who have shaped me as the songwriter that I am today. 

- Hit songwriter Lance Carpenter and Clint Daniels-

 

 

5.) What is your biggest fear?

-My biggest fear is definitely tornados. Anything to do with bad weather freaks me out! I always want to be somewhere where I can access a storm shelter if I have too. One time I was playing at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN during a TORNADO WARNING. I was so nervous! Luckily after the show I found a basement in the consignment shop next door. 

 

 

6.) What is one thing you love?

I love people! One of my favorite things to do is meet new people and hear their stories. 

 

 

 

7.) What is your favorite quote?

-"Be the change that you wish to see in this world." -Gandhi.  Everyone has a purpose and a gift that could change the world!

 

 

8.) What is your favorite candy?

-Milky Way Bars. I love the soft caramel in the middle. I could eat an entire bag of them!


 


9.) What is the best advice you have ever received? 
-"Do not fear what others think of you." I feel like fear holds so many people back from doing what they want to do and being themselves. They may fear what others think of them or fear they aren't good enough. Don't let other people define who you are or who you want to be!

 


10.) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

-I am obsessed with the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The area has beaches all complete with little seaside towns. I've got this place on my bucket list!

How could you not love this place?
