Hey guys! My name is Katie and I’m from up north in Minnesota. I was born and raised in the south east part of the state, with roots in upper Iowa and the surrounding Midwest areas. My first concert memory takes me to the MN State Fair where I recall seeing Travis Tritt. I don’t remember my age, but I do know I was young. At that young age a concert seed was planted and it’s been growing ever since. I like all varieties of music, and if you were to take a look at my playlist you’ll see evidence of that. There’s everything from today’s pop music, rock and roll classics, to hard metal rock, and of course country. That’s always what I come back to and what feels like home, literally and figuratively. My grandparents were the lovers of country music, so I mostly heard it from them when I was younger. Growing up I was the “family rebel” in that I enjoyed country music, as most everyone else in my family that had interest in music, didn’t necessarily have interested in country music. Thankful that I went against the grain and followed what felt right. Country music has not only been a type of music I enjoy; it’s been an outlet for me and something that was there for me when I needed it most. I’m super stoked to be a part of the Think Country team! Country music and music in general has brought so many wonderful people into my life. Those meetings have turned into friendships, which have turned into a family of sorts. I love writing and expressing my thoughts, and I love music. Being able to mix the two and enjoy what I do and to work with Think Country in the process makes it that much more meaningful. Music is an exciting thing and I can’t wait to see where it takes me next!
