Hmmm…I play tennis on the tennis team, love to hang out with friends and facebook and got to movies and be with my sister Emilee. We co-write songs together too. I just learned to play golf it’s pretty fun! BOYS, BOYS, BOYS……of course.
Its really cool to see that a girl as talented as yourself is just a normal teenager like everyone else. and Boys are fun!! I’m sure you get asked out alot.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
Hmm. WOW that’s tough but probably in Nashville since is the Music Capital of the world and it’s a nice family focused place too. Or New York. But I really love Texas too. Austin TX would be beast too.
LA is a pretty big deal too. I have never been to Texas but I would love to visit someday…maybe to see you perform live!

Taylor Swift. Carrie Underwood. Bruno Mars. Jessie J lately, Josh Groban. Patsy Cline I am uber diversified in what I listen too.
Very diverse! I love all of those artists!
How would you describe your music?
County with a hint of pop. But i love the old school stuff so much because you have to SING the songs. I’m really a vocalist first and a songwriter second.
You definetely have to voice to really SING!
What is your most memorable performance? why?
Hmm. It has to be the National Anthem for Opening day for the Houston Astros this year. There were 45,000 people there it was incredible.
WOW! That is absolutely incredible! Congratulations on being able to have such an awesome experience.

Whose career do you most admire in the music industry?
Carrie Underwood. Her vocals, her style, her class. She absolutely amazing. Also Taylor Swift’s songwriting, but who doesn’t?
Pretty soon they are going to be saying that about you! But we love both Carrie and Taylor. Amazing women.
Of your personal music, what is the one you are most proud of? Why?
Hmm. One Time Around or New Crush. I wrote both of those with my sister Emilee. One Time Around has been put on some great compilation CD’s and New Crush just recently won 2nd in the International Songwriting Competion in the TEEN division. It’s a huge honor – New Crush is about a boy we saw at Taco Bell when we were on the way to Austin to record
haha Taco Bell! You never know where inspiration will come from. Congratulations on placing 2nd in the songwriting competiton. And I must say we all love New Crush and One Time Around. New Crush is a favorite!!

Goals are to record the best music possible and put on a live tour. The most amazing feeling is when you sing and the crowd responds to you. It’s a natural high.
