Check out our interview with hometown talent Bethany Becker of Texas!

You just released a 3 song EP titled Maybe More…how’s the feedback been from country radio?

It has been awesome! I’ve heard my songs on multiple stations and have been able to do couple of live interviews. Those were a lot of fun!

What has been the biggest “Wow” moment of your career?

Everything has been a wow moment. I feel so blessed to be able to do what I do and still can’t believe that I have these opportunities. The biggest wow moment was probably going to Nashville for the first time to write and record the EP.  I think that’s the moment that it clicked that I was actually doing this.  The release of my EP and video and getting nominated for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards were also really big moments for me. It’s really hard to pick just one!

What is the #1 item on your Bucket List?

I want to go on a world tour and play stadiums. That’s what I’ve wanted since I was a really little girl. The energy and the excitement from the crowd must be amazing!

Outside of music, what is something that you are extremely passionate about?

I also love to act! I work with an agency here in Texas.  I have a lot of fun portraying different characters and figuring out how they would respond to the situations they have to face. 

Have you heard yourself on the radio yet?  If so, where were you and what was your reaction?

The first time I heard myself on the radio was on a UK station. They had Tweeted that they were going to play “Maybe More” so I woke up early and tuned in. I was half asleep but it was still really exciting! It had been a huge goal of mine for a long time so it was really neat to hear it happen. I woke up my parents to tell them!

What’s the most played song on your iPod?

Right now it’s “Tim McGraw” by Taylor Swift, but it changes constantly!

What has been your favorite city to visit?

Nashville! There’s country music everywhere and everyone I’ve met there has been super nice! I also have an obsession with cowboy boots and they have a lot of stores!

If you could go on tour opening for anyone in country music, who would it be?

Carrie Underwood!  She’s an incredible singer, has great music, and seems really sweet!

What has been the most difficult challenge you’ve had to face in your budding career?

Balancing it with the rest of my life was really hard at first. When I decided to pursue music professionally I was going to a really competitive public high school where I was on the dance team, in theatre, in choir, and taking all advanced classes. My work load was crazy and left no time for me to work on my music so I eventually left and became home-schooled. It was a really big transition at first but now that I’ve gotten used to it I realize that I did the right thing.

What’s the best advice you could give to an aspiring artist?

It’s possible. A lot of people will tell you that your goals and dreams are unrealistic but they’re wrong. It’s not easy and it’s a lot of work, but if you’re completely dedicated and willing to give 100% it is very possible!
