Oh, and having a tour of his man cave was AMAZING.” stated Candy O’Terry.

After spending a week together in Nashville with the idea of doing a 4-part series for O’Terry’s award-winning podcast and radio program The Story Behind Her Success, the two realized that the city was rich with stories to tell and that a platform for music industry stories, combined with the rich content Valeras had accumulated through her YouTube series, might be a hit. As life-long singers and country music fans, Candy & Jacy have a clear vision of the guests they seek. “We’re on the lookout for women and men who aren’t afraid to tell the world how they got to where they are today in the music business….including the good times when they were riding high, and the bad times when they were on the verge of giving up. These stories are meant to teach and inspire others to take a chance on living their dreams.”
