Thirsty Thursday Featuring Lady Redneck
Thank you for chatting with us! For newer fans, how did your passion for music and career come about? I grew up in music. My dad and mom were in a band and as soon as they could, we started music. I don’t remember ever NOT playing or being involved in music.
What was the best piece of advice you've ever been given about pursuing a career in music? To go for it. It will never be “the right time.” The right time is now!
How was the last year for you? What were your highlights? This last year was AMAZING!! Highlights? I enjoyed playing at “The Lucky Duck” at SXSW in Austin, going to the Grand Ole Opry for being nominated as Songwriter of the Year with the Josie Music Awards, and having my music on the charts.
Where did you grow up and how has that influenced your style of music? In the middle of nowhere in Idaho… haha. Anyone ever heard of Howe, Idaho…population 23? We listened to all genres of music but the majority was country. Growing up on a dairy farm, riding horses with nothing but the dirt and the sky. It was heavenly.
At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope people take away from your songs? That life is real. That there’s so much good in music and good in this world. That Jesus LOVES them more than anything and I hope it puts a smile on their face.
Aside from singing do you play any instruments? Piano, guitar, bass guitar, drums, ukulele, violin/fiddle and mandolin
What is your favorite breakfast? Eggs Benedict hands down
Home cooking or going out for dinner? Home cooking :)
What do you think is the most important meal of the day is and why? Breakfast. It starts off my day and gets me going after a nice workout.
Favorite music to listen to while you cook? Any of my records. Lately it’s been Chris Stapleton.
Southerners know good cookin'. What should every Southern kitchen be stocked with? Everything you need for bbq, brisket, cornbread and peach cobbler.
If you could be sponsored by one food/drink brand who would it be and why? Well.. I was once a Pepsi girl at Nascar in AZ and that was fun, but I’m thinking’ I would want to be sponsored by Premiere Protein because I drink their protein shakes every day.
