Q: What year did you participate in Country Idol?

A: 2011, 2012, 2013 (making the finals in 2012 and 2013)

Q: What did you take away from your Country Idol experience?

A: I learned more about myself as a performer and what to work on and how to command an audience.

Q: Advice to future contestants?

A: Keep your head up, if you don't make it on your first attempt, try again. I myself was booed off the stage in January of 2012 yet i still made the finals, you can't let it keep ya down. Also make sure to practice as often as possible, remember if you make it to the top 20-25 out of hundreds, everyone in that show will be bringing their best stuff.
