It’s Christmas in July! I am flattered that my Christmas song, “Lead Me With Your Light,” was chosen as winner of an American Songwriting Award. I co-wrote the song with Carson Henley, my go-to writing partner and brother. Listen to the song by clicking the logo above.

Sending a heartfelt thank you to Rick Moore & American Songwriter Magazine for the 2-page feature & interview in the May/June edition (with Billy Joel on the cover). Not bad company! Read more about my life growing up, my incredible experience with the Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter Artist Discovery Program, and what’s next for me this year. Xo

Thank you soo much to ASCAP for having me play last night at the ASCAP Expo. I was feelin’ the love. <3

I am beyond chuffed to bits to have been selected as the winner of Guitar Center’s Singer-Songwriter Competition with Don Was. Such a talented group of finalists: Tyler Stenson, Will Evans, Emily Elbert, Emmy Nash, Ana Free, Michael McArthur, TK of Cloud 9, Jay Loftus, and Halle Johnson — check em out! Cannot wait to record my EP with Don Was. What an honor! Thank you to Guitar Center, all of the sponsors, Don Was, and all of YOU for your support. xoxo

I’m so grateful for opportunities like these for independent artists. And I’m honored to be chosen as the winner of the Show Me the Music Contest with my song, “Who Are You.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
