Priscilla Block~ “Q&A”!!!


1) Hi Priscilla, can you tell me a little bit about yourself, before you became a country singer? I am 22 years old. I come from a big family of seven and fall second to youngest. My siblings are my best friends.  I grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina. Cheerleaded throughout grade school.
2) How did you get into country and how did you know you wanted a career in it?Growing up I always loved singing. It started with elementary school talent shows, to leading worship with my mom at our church. I was always so moved by music. I wrote my first song when I was fifteen on the piano. At the time, Taylor Swift was just blowing up. I read just about every single article on her and was obsessed with her music, which kind of lead me to playing guitar and writing songs. When I was sixteen I wrote, “One More Kiss,” which is on my EP that I released this past August. After writing that song, I knew that I wanted to pursue music and felt confident that I could have a career as an artist. Throughout high school I traveled a lot to audition for all the music shows like American Idol, The Voice, X Factor, and Americas Got Talent. After finishing high school, I decided to make the move to Nashville and here I am.
3) Who are some of your musical icons? Gosh, I have so many music Icons. The ones that come time mind right of the bat would be Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, Dolly Parton, Hillary Scott, and Carly Pearce.I would say one of my biggest inspirations would be Miranda Lambert. I love her style and honesty in songwriting.  Ashley Monroe is one of my favorite writers. 
4) How did you come up with your name of your latest EP “Different Route” and was there any other names you were going to chose instead? Coming up with the name of the EP wasn’t very difficult for me. When I wrote “Different Route,” I immediately thought that it would be awesome album title. I thought about self titling the EP, but I felt that, “Different Route,” really described  the album in two words. I tend to write a lot of songs about about going you own route, no matter what anyone else says. Collectively and cohesively all the songs on the EP created the story I wanted for “Different Route.” 
5) What is your favorite song off your EP? My favorite song on the EP 100% is, “Over.” The second I finished writing that song I knew that I would put it on my first album.
6) Is there anything coming up with your music in 2018? I am really looking forward to what this year has in store. We are planning on hitting the road this summer/fall. I am playing my second “Whiskey Jam,” in Nashville on April 12th. We are pumped for that. I am also planning to do a college tour this fall. And obviously new music ❤ 
7) If you could sing a duet with a famous singer or group who would it be and why? That is also a tough question. I would probably say Chris Stapleton cause who the heck wouldn’t?
8) Where do you see yourself in the next 5 to 10 years with your music? In the next five years I see myself on tour opening for a big name and nominated for and ACM. The next 10 hopefully headlining my own tour.
9)  What is one of your favorite quotes? “There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs.”
10) Is there anything else you would like to share? One cool thing I’ll share. When I first moved to Nashville-the first year was really tough. I was working full time and in school and found myself wondering why I moved here. I was having one of those meltdown days, and questioning everything. That same day I happened to be wearing a Taylor Swift shirt under my apron ( I was working at a frozen yogurt shop). As I was leaving work, Taylor swift was driving by. She pulled her car to the side of the road and hopped into her passenger seat and opened the door and yelled, ” I FREAKIN LOVE YOUR SHIRT.” We got to talk a little before fans started bombarding her, but It was one of those moments that I realized I’m where I need to be and one day it will all pay off.

Lauren Ashley & “The Trainwreckers” QA!!!


1.     Hi Lauren, can you tell me a little bit about yourself, before you became a country singer/songwriter? Hi!! I am from a small town in Georgia called Griffin, Ga. I grew up in the country and riding four-wheelers and fishing was a part of our daily life! I played sports growing up and developed a love for that! I also had a love for singing and music at a VERY early age. Life was simple, but it was surely beautiful! 

2.     How did become a fan of country music & how did you know you wanted a career in it? Growing up in the south, country music was very predominate. I grew up listening to 90’s country and was a HUGE fan of Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, Deana Carter, Kenny Chesney.. (just to name a few!) Like I said above, I have always loved to sing and music in general. It was something that just came natural to me. However, I knew I wanted to be a country music singer when I attended my first big concert, which was a Kenny Chesney show. I knew when I saw him on stage… looking out into the audience with our lighters up in the air.. that I wanted to feel what he was feeling in that exact moment. I was 13 at the time… and that’s when I knew! 

3.     What is your favorite song off your new EP “Evolution, Part 1?” Wow! I truly love every song on “Evolution, Part 1″…. however, I would have to say my FAV would be “Without You”. Just like many girls, I have had my heart broken many of times.. and it’s easy to write about that stuff. But, when you finally find a love that inspires you enough to write about… that’s when you know it’s special and that’s what happened with “Without You”. 

4.     Who are some of your musical icons? I have so many for very different reasons. But my top ones would be Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty, Shania Twain, Miranda Lambert, Steven Tyler, Eric Church. All of these artists are influences of mine in many ways, but the common denominator would be because of their artistry, entertainment, and uniqueness! 

5.     Is there anything coming up with your music for the rest of 2018? Absolutely! We will be releasing 3 more EP’s this year. 4 (total including Part One) volumes of our album, “Evolution” broken up into “parts”. Each of these volumes tell a story of somewhere that I have been in my life, and have lived/gone through! Other than new music being released, we will be touring across the south and midwest! 

6.     Where do you see your music career in the next 5 10 years? Even though I can’t predict the future or the time frame it takes to do things, my goals for the next 5-10 years are to be a headlining artist.. traveling the world playing my music and meeting new fans. Releasing tons of new music.. and honestly just doing what I love with the people that I love. My band, family, FANS. 

7.     If you could sing a duet with a famous singer or group who would it be and why? It would have to be either Stevie Nicks or Eric Church (preferably both?! lol) Both of these for the same reason- these two artists are probably my biggest influences.. and to be able to sing a duet with either of them would literally be a dream come true! 

8.     What is one of your favorite quotes? Wow. I have so many. I would say… this quote has always stuck with me when times get hard.. ” Perseverance is a great element of success. If you knock loud enough and long enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

9.     Is there anything else you would like to share? Well, I would just like to thank you for your time, and to also tell everyone to follow me on social media! I love interacting with fans and following along all of your journeys! So I would love anyone who sees this to follow along and come say hello!
