You can find out more about Bethany Becker and buy her EP, Maybe More, here!

What was your reaction to the HMMA nomination?

I was super excited! I didn’t know what to think. I found out really late at night after the rest of my family was already asleep, so I was basically freaking out by myself J

What was your favorite part of recording your EP?

I loved the process. There’s just something really cool about watching my ideas and stories turn into finished songs. I loved every minute of the writing and recording. This has been my dream for a long time and it’s just really great that it’s actually happening.

How would you describe your musical style? Fashion style?

I would definitely say that my music is country pop. My music is relatable.  My goal is to write music that will impact people the way I’ve had music impact me.  I want my audience to know that others have been in the places they have been and felt the feelings they have felt.  It’s the best feeling in the world when you hear a song and feel like it was written for you, so I try my best to make music that will give people that feeling.

My fashion style is kind of the extremes. I’m a complete girly girl, I love lace on just about anything and I own way too many dresses! But I’ll also throw in a random leather jacket or something like that when I feel like it. I wear cowgirl boots almost everywhere and with everything, it’s kind of an obsession.

When did you start singing? When did you realize that it is what you wanted to do?

I’ve been singing for as long as I can remember. My first memory of me singing is me jumping on a hotel bed pretending to be Ariel while my older brother was telling me to shut up. Me and my friends in elementary school would write songs and perform them for each other at recess. I’ve wanted to be a singer since the first grade, and I never changed my mind.

Do you have any short term goals? Long term goals?

I have a lot of goals.  In the short term, I’d like to continue songwriting, making music, working with amazing people and playing more and more venues.  In the long term I’d love to go on a world tour, win a Grammy, have a platinum album, and play Times Square on New Year’s Eve, lots of fun stuff J

If you could duet with anyone, who would you duet with?

Either Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift, I look up to them both in different ways and they are amazing artists.

What’s one thing you want people to know about you as you break into music? 

Music has always been here for me through all the good times and all the bad times. No matter what I’m going through I have always been able to find or write a song that lines up with my current situation. Music has brought me incredible comfort and happiness throughout my life so far, and I hope that my music is able to do that for others.
