CCMA 2017

I still have a goofy grin on my face about all of the amazing humans I had the pleasure of spending time with over the last week. It was so exciting to cheer on my friends and perform for audiences filled with family, unbelievable artists, insanely talented musicians, and an industry that has welcomed me with open arms. Thank you CCMA and thank you to everyone who voted during the Spotlight Contest to give me this amazing opportunity. It's one I won't forget. See you all next year!

Four Chords & The Truth

Andrea England's "Four Chords & The Truth" has been one of my favourite performance experiences since I moved to Toronto. It was such an honour to be invited to play as an emerging songwriter on the same stage with these artists. If you're ever in Toronto and are looking for a great show to take in, do yourself a favour and get tickets to this songwriter round at The Dakota Tavern!

Radio Tour Oct/2016

So to say that my very first radio tour was a blast would be an understatement. I got to see old friends, make new friends, and do what I love in four different states. I got to admire the beauty of Ocean Way Studios, drink deliciously perfect lattes at Edgehill, and jam in a gorgeous backyard full of love, lights, cute pets, and wonderful company (Thanks Pat!). We drove by Fame studio, visited Talladega Superspeedway, and drank margaritas. We got chased by clowns (in a haunted house, thank goodness), ate way too many burritos, and surprisingly found ourselves within spitting distance of Alan Jackson (not that we ever would). We experienced the brilliance of the Time Jumpers, danced along to the Don Kelley Band at Roberts Western World, and got a little broadwaysted. We strolled along Music Row, took selfies with the Ryman, watched Chris Carmack film a scene, and tried biscuits & gravy for the first time. We visited cute antique shops, stood on the dance floor at Surf Ballroom, and got to drive through towns we never thought we’d see. We covered a lot of miles, a lot of farmland, and a lot of roadkill (ew). I got to share my music and my story with wonderful folks at 20 different radio stations, and all the while, I got to do it with my best friend. Thank you GrassRoots Promotion, thank you Holland Group, thank you country radio, thank you Chad, and thank you mom & dad for making these last few weeks happen. I’m walking away with a full heart, high hopes for the future, and lots of beautiful memories. I'm no video editor like my brother, but I wanted to put together a little something to give you a sneak peak behind the scenes. You can find the video on my Facebook Page by clicking HERE :) I hope you enjoy!! 

RADIO TOUR

And we sang all the way down to......NASHVILLE!! I'm so excited to announce that I'm heading out on my very first RADIO TOUR!! In just a few weeks, I'll be on my way to the US to promote my debut single "Tupelo"!!

Sending lots of hugs and kisses to everyone at The Holland Group and GrassRoots Promotion for putting this tour together, and of course my family for being the best support system ever! <3 Now bring on the road trips, coffee, dry shampoo, and early morning jams! :)

With the help of my friends at Grassroots Promotion and a cute little app called Airplay Map, you can now track where "Tupelo" is being played in the US!! :) Make sure to keep checking back to my facebook page to stay updated on the spins!

CCMW 2016

What a weekend!!!!!! I attended my very first CCMAs last weekend and it was more amazing than I could have imagined. The people, the talent, the atmosphere.. just as a whole, was incredible!

On Thursday, I got the wonderful opportunity to play Sirroma Entertainment's "Diamonds in the Rough" Showcase. Huge thanks to Angie, Sirroma, & the sponsors for hosting this event and thanks to all the folks who came out early and start their day with us! To make things even better, Linda Heldman @ Canadian Beats covered our set! Check out the link below to see our live performance of "Tupelo" :)
