1. What was the inspiration behind "Fireflies"? 

"Fireflies" takes you back to the very first time you fell in love. Long days, late nights, sneaking out, making memories… Everything you could remember about being young and in love! 

2. Who's your biggest musical inspiration?

My dad was the most influential person to me musically. He taught me my first chords on the guitar and growing up I watched him perform on stage all the time, so that really ignited a spark in me to pursue music.

3. What made you decide to cover Martina McBride's "A Broken Wing"? What was going through your mind when you heard Martina was listening? 

"A Broken Wing" is just one of those songs that touches your heart and soul when you hear it. When Storme Warren told me he was texting Martina to listen I was FREAKING OUT (in a good way). I think I do well under pressure, so the fact that I knew she was listening made me really give it my all.

4. What movie always makes you cry? 

TITANIC. It never fails. NEVER LET GO, JACK.

5. Time traveling to the future or past?

The past. It would be such a buzzkill to see how everything pans out in the future! I like to be surprised. 

6. What nail art are you currently rocking?

My dog's rabies shot tag. I think I took her to go get groomed and they needed to see her recent rabies shot info, so I stuffed it in my purse and have yet to take it out. Oops.

8. Cats or dogs?
