As a kid, my Saturday morning "cartoons" were perhaps a little different than the other ten-year-olds on the cul-de-sac in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I would wake up before my family, head downstairs in my pajamas, pour myself a generous, healthy bowl of Cookie Crisp cereal, then sit on our loveseat couch and hit channel 66 with the remote. I looked forward to it every week – the CMT Top 20 Countdown. Starry-eyed and awestruck, I watched every music video on the segment, no matter how many times I’d seen it from its previous weeks climbing the charts. This was the golden hour of mid-2000s Country music, spinning songs like “Before He Cheats” by Carrie Underwood, “Would You Go With Me” by Josh Turner, “Kerosene” by Miranda Lambert, "Take Me There" by Rascal Flatts, and a new teenage dream on the scene singing something about Tim McGraw.
Fast forward to junior year of high school - I found out about Belmont University's Songwriting program. Nothing could be more exciting than an actual foot in the door to a realm I had only dreamt about as a landlocked desert kid with a fascination for an industry no one around me knew anything about. So in 2015, I made the big move to Nashville to pursue my dreams to become a professional songwriter and artist while doing college at Belmont. I’m currently in my senior year (#what).
My favorite artists are people who tell stories about their lives and share honest experiences through their songs - something I aim to do in my own music. I believe that vulnerability breeds connection, and I’m grateful if any pieces of life I have to share resonate with you! That being said, I would love to learn about your story, too!
For now, here are the best places to make that happen:
