IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE SAT DOWN TO ANSWER SOME OF YOUR QUESTIONS, SO I'M DIVING INTO THE THINGS YOU ALL WANT TO KNOW MOST ABOUT! HAVE A QUESTION? COMMENT BELOW ON THIS POST AND I'LL ANSWER IT WITH ANOTHER Q&A!

 

WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING ON TOUR?

I LOVE EXPLORING THE CITIES AND TOWNS THAT I'M IN, ESPECIALLY IF I GET A DAY OFF WHILE I'M THERE. I LOOK UP THE BEST PLACES TO EAT AND GET COFFEE WHILE I'M THERE AND IF I HAVE TIME, I CHECK OUT THE LOCAL HISTORY AND SHOPPING.

 

WHAT IS YOUR GO TO STAGE STYLE?

I ALWAY LOVE PLAYING WITH AND TRYING OUT NEW TRENDS BUT WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, I'M ALWAYS COMFORTABLE AND CONFIDENT IN A GOOD PAIR OF JEANS AND BOOTIES.

 

BEST BEAUTY ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?

WEAR SUNSCREEN. WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I WAS ALL ABOUT LAYING OUT AT THE BEACH TO GET THE PERFECT TAN. NOW THAT I'M OLDER, I SLATHER ON THE SUNSCREEN AND WEAR A HAT TO PROTECT MY SCALP AND FACE.

 

HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED WHEN THINGS DON'T GO YOUR WAY OR MAY COME HARDER THAN EXPECTED?

WHEN I'M HAVING A SET BACK OR FEELING DISCOURAGED, I LOVE TO LISTEN TO MOTIVATIONAL PODCASTS... ESPECIALLY THOSE ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE CHASING THEIR DREAMS AND THE JOURNEY IT TOOK TO GET THEM WHERE THEY ARE. IT'S SO COMFORTING AND INSPIRING TO HEAR HOW SOMEONE WAS KNOCKED DOWN AND GOT BACK UP SWINGING. 

 

WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO AND LOVING AT THE MOMENT?

RIGHT NOW, I'M REALLY LOVING CARLY PEARCE, WILLIAM MICHAEL MORGAN, AND ashley mcbryde. 

 

HOW DID YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND MEET?

HE WAS IN A BAND THAT I WOULD OCCASIONALLY SIT IN AND PLAY WITH FROM TIME TO TIME. AND NOW, HE PLAYS IN MY BAND! YOU CAN READ OUR LOVE STORY, HERE.

 

PERFECT DATE NIGHT?

WHEN HE OFFERS TO COOK DINNER FOR ME... HE'S A REALLY GREAT COOK! SOME OF HIS SPECIALTIES ARE SHRIMP & GRITS AND CHICKEN PARMESAN. THEN, WE'LL EITHER WATCH A MOVIE ON THE COUCH OR HEAD OUT TO HEAR SOME LIVE MUSIC.

 

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO SOMEONE TRYING TO BREAK INTO MUSIC?

IT'S GOING TO BE SO EASY TO WATCH WHAT OTHERS ARE DOING OR WHAT'S WORKING FOR THEM AND WANT TO REPLICATE THAT FOR YOURSELF. BUT YOU HAVE TO STAY GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC TO WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO OFFER. AND THAT'S FOR ANYONE NO MATTER WHAT JOB THEY'RE TRYING TO PERSUE!

 

HOW DO YOU RELAX?

I TAKE A BATH ABOUT 2X A WEEK. I RUN THE BATH WATER, LIGHT CANDLES, AND THROW IN A BATH BOMB. I USUALLY LISTEN TO MUSIC OR WATCH SOME REALLY TERRIBLE REALITY TV WHILE I'M IN THERE. OH, AND I ALSO APPLY A FACE AND EYE MASK!

 

WHAT IS YOUR PRE-SHOW RITUAL LIKE?

I DRINK LOTS OF WATER ALL DAY. WHILE I'M GETTING READY, I LIKE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC. THEN, I SPEND A FEW MINUTES WARMING UP MY VOICE. RIGHT BEFORE I WALK ON STAGE, I PRAY AND JUST THANK GOD FOR THE DAY AND THE PEOPLE THAT I HAVE THERE WITH ME IN THE CROWD AND WORKING BACKSTAGE.

 

WHAT FIRST INSPIRED YOU TO START SINGING?

I'VE JUST ALWAYS DONE IT. I USED TO STAND ON THE FIRE PLACE HEARTH... THAT WAS MY STAGE AND SING ALONG TO ALL OF MY HEROS. IT WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE ALWAYS ASKED ME TO DO AND TOLD ME THAT I WAS GOOD AT... SO I JUST WENT WITH IT!

 

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM YOU IN THE FUTURE?

NEW MUSIC! I'M SO EXCITED! I CAN'T SAY EXACTLY WHEN YET, BUT THE WHEELS ARE IN MOTION. I'LL BE PLAYING SOME NEW PLACES LATER THIS YEAR AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING BACK ON STAGE!
