The 19-year-old musician dished to the mag about going against the crowd, dating and a devastating deal that fell through. Check it:
On rebelling with words: “I love to write honest songs that name real people, then get up onstage and live out those emotions in front of of 15,000 people. Penciling in a night to get wasted is not something I want to do.”
On a record deal that she walked out on: “When I was 13, I got a meeting with RCA Records, and they said they wanted to sign me to a development deal. That means they want to watch you, but they’re not promising to make an album with you — kind of like a guy who wants to date you but no be your boyfriend who wants to date you but not be your boyfriend. After a year you turn in your songs and they decide whether they want to shelf you, drop you or sign you to a record deal. They decided to shelf me and I had a choice to make. I made a tough decision and struck out on my own.”
On dating with her busy schedule: “It’s always going to be long distance, even if I date a boy who lives next door to me in Nashville. I’ll be flying to see him and flying him places to see me. It feels like it would involve more scheduling, and I already deal with a lot scheduling in my life. Of course, if I met somebody who was worth it, I would probably stop thinking that way!”
