First experience performing in public: 7th grade swing choir audition (talk about nerve wracking!).

Most amazing experience that involved music: When visiting Nashville, I toured the Ryman. Just being there and standing on the same ground that so many incredible artists had stood on before was an inspiring experience. As we walked along the pews, “Breakers Roar” by Sturgill Simpson began to play. Now, every time I hear that song, it takes me back and it's like I'm right there again.
