I knew country was what I needed to do for the rest of my life but I never knew how to make it happen or how to get it started. I went into a Musical Theatre Performance program trying to find my way through life, my purpose and where I am meant to go. I was torn between writing and singing country music for the rest of my life or doing Musical Theatre instead. I struggled with this decision for years and I could never find the answer. The summer of after my 2nd year in college, I found it. I went to blues fest in Ottawa, Ontario with some of my friends from work to see Hunter Hayes and Fun. It was raining but we still had a great time. Watching these artists perform was such an amazing experience. In the middle of Fun's set, lead singer, Nate Ruess, stopped singing and started to tear up while the whole audience kept on singing. The lyrics were so clear and everyone knew them. The audience showed Fun how much support they had and how much they had changed the lives of every single person in the audience in some way, including me. Whether it be a big or small change, everyone was affected by Fun's music and Nate and the rest of the group all felt this support and love they were given. In that very moment, witnessing and being a part of that love and support that was given to Fun and seeing Fun's reaction and appreciation to it all, I knew that performing my music is the only way for me to ever achieve happiness in my life. In any other job, I would always feel as if a piece of me was missing. In that one moment, I would of given all I had to receive that feeling that Fun experienced during their set. From then on I knew I had found my arrow and it was pointing straight to my dreams of being a country music artist. There was no turning back. I felt it, deep in my soul, that this was the right path for me and I never glanced back and I never will.
