"She’s the last girl you’d ever expect to do something crazy. Just last week she up and left everybody saying she’ll crash and burn, come home, crying she ain’t no Martina McBride but......"
I was born and raised in a small town in Germany and always wanted to pursue my dreams to become a country music singer. My parents used to listen to a folk/country radio station. They played a lot of country music, that really shaped me and yes my heart is country.
Years and one bad break up later I decided to go after my dreams. I focused on studying and put this whole music thing on hold but I missed something and felt the time was right for breaking new ground and pushing this pain aside. So I stopped feeling sorry for myself, put a smile on my face and decided to go to Nashville. Sounds easier than it actually was :-) but it was the best decision I ever made, so far.
I packed my bags, my hopes, my dreams, my broken heart and stories to tell and went to Nashville. Nashville was magical and it felt like home to me. I got the opportunity to co- write songs with some accomplished songwriters and I remember well the day of my first co write. I thought about so many things; what am I doing here, are my song ideas good enough, am I good enough, shouldn’t I be at university and learn something about Hegel’s philosophy….. It was crazy but then Sarah, Sarah Majors my very first co writer, walked into the office. She smiled, hugged me and treated me like I was one of her best friends."
