Do you say a prayer before you hit the stage?
Yes I pray that I stay true and pure to the music and the people.
What do you like to do or how do you like to indulge after a long concert?
After a show I love to lounge out and hang with my band, I love to laugh. It sort of completes my release for the day.
Do you have any special requests when you’re on tour?
If I can just have my dog FiFi with me, she turns any place into home.

What’s your favourite way to spend a day off?
My perfect day is to spend the whole day with my husband, my family, and my dog. Doing nothing but being together, laughing.
What’s the best part of being a singer?
The beautiful fans, all the new friends I make that share their stories with me of how my music touched their hearts—truly a blessing.
If you could record with any musician, who would it be?
Are you writing any songs right now? What are they about?
I’m concentrating on two right now, and they’re about real life and what we can all relate to: love.
What makes you smile?
Singing, my loving supportive husband and family.
What makes you cry?
Heartbreak, the thought of someone, anyone’s heart hurting.
Are you strictly country, or would you branch out into any other genre’s?
I’m a country music singer, proudly, I do let other music inspire me, but I’m just finally getting known in the country music scene. So I’m thankful and haven’t even begun to think that far ahead.

“Someone once told me I sing like I was born with a broken heart. My music is what saved me. It is my lifeline. And I want to share it with anyone who is without hope and dreams.”
