“This playlist was for my wedding!”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
My music exposure as a young kid was pretty vast. My mom listened to a lot of 90's country-George Strait, Tim McGraw, and Martina McBride to name a few artists. However, I grew up with two older brothers and they both played a part in the music I listened to! With them, I listened to anything from Britney Spears or Eminem to Maroon 5 or Jack Johnson.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
Songs about Jane-Maroon 5. I have had a long time love for Maroon 5 and nothing beats their first album. I can listen to it no matter what mood I am in!
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
Imagine Dragons! I saw them at a smaller venue before they got super popular and it was amazing. I remember they had this HUGE drum that they played during one of the songs (I think radioactive) and it just made the whole place shake! It was really cool.
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I can play a little piano, but not well by any means. I wish I could play the guitar! I tried learning a few years ago, but I could not get my fingers to hold the notes properly.
Name your top 3 favorite artists and why?
Maroon 5, Zac Brown Band and Johnny Cash. Maroon 5 has always been at the top of my list as far as favorites go. I’m a pretty nostalgic person and listening to them reminds me of fun times with my brothers. My love for Zac Brown Band came around during my early college years and it was the music that got me through some tough times. Its feel good music. It’s the kind of music you can dance to in the car, listen to with your grandma, and sing to your kids. It’s the Coca-Cola of music-its good with everything! And lastly, Johnny Cash. My appreciation and love for Johnny Cash came much later in life after meeting my husband. I love the simplicity of his music. There is something refreshing about a man and his guitar and nothing else.
