I was born & raised in a really rural part of Arkansas. I started writing songs by the time I was 9 years old. I still live about 7 miles or so off a rough gravel road and have to travel about 32 miles to get to my hometown and the grocery store. A GPS can't even find it. I have recently started performing some of my girl songs out at live music venues locally and having a lot of fun singing and songwriting with my local artist friends. KSSN 96 FM in Little Rock has a program designed to help promote original music and local artists. They are playing our songs on the air on Sunday evenings from 7 to 8 p.m., during the "Homegrown" hour program. I have entered the John Lennon Songwriting Competition before and scored well with my song, That's Between Her Memory & Me. It just barely missed being selected in the top ten in the country category. I did recieve an honorable mention from them with a letter from the judges saying they thought my song was right up there with the best country entries. I have also scored well in a TNN Songwriting Contest and locally in The Country Colegate Showdown in the past. I have been fortunate to work with some great local artists & songwriters such as Ben Coulter, Chris Wyatt, Dana Landers, Sonya Hartle, Duane Blankenship, Julie Gunter, Sarah Dillon and many others. Looking forward to what's on the horizon.
