In October 2017, she auditioned with American Idol in Savannah, for Season 1 on ABC and received 3 yeses for the “golden ticket” from Katy Perry, Luke Bryan & Lionel Richie. Lionel Richie compared her to Dolly Parton and Katy Perry said she was a cross between Alison Krauss and Stevie Nicks. She made it to Hollywood where she performed a cover of Stevie Nicks’ song, Edge of Seventeen before coming back home to North Carolina. One hundred sixty nine golden tickets were awarded out of over seventy thousand applicants and she is honored to have been one of the few golden ticket recipients!
