To truly love is to have the courage to walk away and let the other person who wishes to be free go no matter how much it hurts.
My parents taught me never to judge others based on whom they love, what color their skin is, or their religion.
If we continue to show young girls that they are being compared to other girls, weâ€™re doing ourselves a huge disservice as a society. I surround myself with smart, beautiful, passionate, driven, ambitious women. Other women who are killing it should motivate you, thrill you, challenge you and inspire you rather than threaten you and make you feel like youâ€™re immediately being compared to them. The only thing I compare myself to is me, two years ago, or me one year ago.
Promise me this, that you'll stand by me forever. But if God forbid Fate should step in and force us into a goodbye. If you have children someday, when they point to the pictures please tell them my name. Tell them how the crowd went wild, tell them how I hope they shine.
I love being a part of the country-music community.
