“The most common thing you hear is you gotta find what makes you different than any other girl in Nashville,” says Lynn, who has been busy splitting her time between Nova Scotia and Nashville. She recalls advice she got earlier this year at a Country Music Television panel: “‘Stick to what you are and people will get there’—I held onto that and I’m gonna take that and run. It’s that balance of trying to branch out because I’m figuring things out in a lot of ways and also stick to what makes me me.”
