the scoop.

Okay heard right...


My NEW ALBUM is finished & set to release on

APRIL 29, 2016!!

Can I get a hallelujah?!?! It has been 5 years since I got to do this so we are gonna do it right!!! Mark your calendars. 


My vision was to create a project full of hope, authenticity & true inspiration for us all. 

LIGHT SHINE IN is that album.

I hope that this music is REFRESHING not only to your ears, but to your soul. That you would be able to smile wide as you listen, take a breath, and walk with your head held high. I pray that it will be a soundtrack of hope in your darkest days, and also a happy tune that keeps you tapping your toes and bobbing your head!

I hope these songs bring joy joy joy joy down in your heart - HEY! (old church singalong anybody?) :)


I had the honor of co-producing Light Shine In with my good friend Ben Cooper at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, TN. Having the opportunity to work with the best players in the business was a dream come true.


 One of my dreams from the beginning of starting this record was to have one of my musical idols sing on a song.


Well, y'all....


I'm honored to tell you that the amazing VINCE GILL lent his voice to this record, as well as THE MCCRARY SISTERS, Matt & Scott of THE SHADOWBOXERSMOLLY PARDEN, JANELLE ARTHUR & many other inspirational talents. AMAZING.


It has been an incredible few years of writing, learning & growing that has led me here, and I am thrilled to say that these songs are some of my BEST YET! 


I CAN HARDLY WAIT for you to hear them. Stay tuned via social media for daily announcements & show updates!
