Her passion is what landed her in the Nashville writing with top producer, Tim Ash.

"I just sang for a producer and he said alright we're signing so it's pretty cool", she remembers.

Tim Ash along with his record label are fully behind the budding star.

"There's a quality that we look for and it's very rare", Ash says.
