❝ The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship. ❞
— The Great Kamryn

❝ The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together. ❞
— Barbara de Angelis

❝ One day you’ll kiss someone and know those are the lips you want to kiss for the rest of your life. ❞

Sometimes I get tired, but I love being on the road and feeling the energy and love from an audience. I embarked on my first headlining tour last year and every show was sold out, and I’m thankful to my fans for being there. I’ve opened up for a lot of country headliners, and having had the chance to feel that crowd screaming for me, and at a volume level I’ve never experienced before, was amazing. I never want to get to the point where success and award nominations seem like stuff that happens every day. My parents taught me that the world doesn’t owe you anything and you have to work for everything you get, and you have to appreciative of success.
