Live Show: I saw her at Hangout Fest a couple of years ago and was blown away. Big, powerful, soulful voice. Very energetic on stage, jumps and dances around and gives her all on every song and leaves it all on the stage, Engages with the audience a lot. She is the show as her band is in the background.
Personal Notes: I work at CMT and we used her song "The Way I Do" in a promo for Nashville.
I am also very surprised she isn't a bigger star yet. The first time I heard her I was sure she would have hit after hit soon.
What an explosive voice! Damn, I think this is gonna be one of those treats she is lower on the card before she blows up. Like when Kendrick Lamar played Thursday night in 2012 at Roo. Very excited to see her
