What I love most is singing. I’ve been singing since I was five years old, I was always told that God has a plan for me. I believe that I was chosen to bring people comfort when they need it most. A meaningful song heard at the right time can change a life. I want that song to be my song. Music has helped me through some of the toughest times in my life. It was there for me when no one else was, and the music industry today is not what it once was. I want to change that. I would like to change the way country music is thought of. When most people think of country music they thing of drinking, cheating or tractors. There is so much good in the world, I do not understand why no one writes about that. Everyone wants to sing about the negativity and heartache. It makes no sense to me, I write about love and happiness and things that lift you up, not drag you down. I want to remind people that music is not simply something to help pass the time when you are driving. Music is food for the soul. I understand that I have my work cut out for me, but, I can think of absolutely nothing I’d rather do with my life.
