Thank you from all of us at Opening Act and the MusiCares Foundation for helping us provide health, financial, and rehabilitation resources to musicians in their time of need.

What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I love being able to express myself in ways words sometimes can't. That being said, there is something so therapeutic about writing a lyric and then singing it. I love being able to be creative and share what's inside my head to the world.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

I think Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran would both be AMAZING to collaborate with. Their songwriting is timeless and I would love to know some of their songwriting secrets. I'm also a huge fan of Kacey Musgraves' wit in her writing.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I'd save part of it for my fund in moving to Nashville and donate the other part to a charity for animals. I have grown up around animals and care very deeply for them. I have a horse, a dog, 10 chickens and 3 cats! A new guitar would be nice too! ;)
