Nikki’s breakthrough came when she entered an Idol competition in hopes to win money for recording. She decided to stick with her roots and sing a Country song; Shania Twain’s “Up”. Nikki had been told for years that her voice and the way she writes from her heart suited Country music best. Her performance that night was phenomenal and the audience ate it up! Nikki knew without a doubt that this was the music she was meant to sing and she loves it!
Nikki recently taught herself how to play the guitar. She’s been writing, recording, and performing her own original country songs which led to her trip to music city, Nashville, Tennessee in January 2011. She spent her time there co-writing with a few amazing songwriters which resulted in 13 new songs. Nikki recorded 3 of her new songs with veteran producer Kent Wells at the famous Sound Kitchen in Franklin, TN.
In July of 2011 Nikki went back to Nashville and competed in Nashville's New Country Star contest. She made it to the finals. She had such a blast and met so many nice people. This is when Nikki decided that her dream of moving to Music City to pursue her music career would have to become reality very soon.
