Favorite Music Memory: I was in the pit for Dierks Bentley’s Sounds of Summer Tour in Virginia Beach in 2015. My friends and I were right up against the stage and even though it was 103 degrees that day, I still wore cowboy boots with jeans and a hat. Dierks was a really good entertainer and it was an amazing concert. If you have any chance to see him live, GO!


I don’t exclusively listen to country. Some of my favorite songs actually come from the Alternative and Video Game genres. I really enjoy Saint Motel’s music and Troublemaker by Grizfolk has been my favorite single to have come out in 2016. I’m always down for a mix of 70’s and 80’s as well!
