What would winning this competition mean to you?
Winning the Rising Talent competition and getting a chance to go to Nashville, would be absolutely incredible and would be a trip of a lifetime. Whilst I am originally from the USA, I have never been to Nashville and for someone like me with country in their blood it would be a dream come true. I’ve put a lot of hard work into my music to get where I am today and with a young family and full time job it definitely hasn’t been easy.
So to win and be able visit to the place where all the legends of country music made their start… there would nothing better!!!
