The talented singer/songwriter’s credit is featured on all 12 songs on her debut, including her third single “Peter Pan” which is flying up the country radio charts. Racking up her first CMT, CMA, AMA and Radio Disney Music award nominations, she received Billboard’s “Rising Star” award at the prestigious 2015 Women In Music event and just earned her first-ever ACM award win for 2016 New Female Vocalist of the Year.
