Also a songwriter, Fox Nashville Entertainment Reporter Stacy McCloud asked Kree if we'll get to hear one of her own songs. "I wanna pull out an original at the right time, so stay tuned," she says.
Song choice is something all the contestants think about every second of every day.
"I am gonna try to brand out of country songs and make songs country rather than just sing country songs," says Middle Tennessee contestant Paul Jolley. The Palmersville native says he's loving the judges constructive criticism. Especially anything that comes from Keith Urban.
"Every since I was little I've looked up to him. He's always been my favorite country artist as a guy," says Paul.
Janelle Arthur has been living in Mt. Juliet for the past three years, but she's from the same town as country legend Dolly Parton and even worked at her theme park. Of course we had to ask if she plans on tackling one of Partons songs! "I hope that I make it long enough to sing a Dolly song and I'm excited to do that. That is one thing on my list" she says.
Aside from the autographs, they say that so far the biggest change has been their hectic schedule. "It's been really exciting and go , go , go. Photo shoot, got my hair and make up professionally done and feeling good," says Janelle.
What keeps them going is the outpouring of support. Be iton social media, or just knowing that a community like Music City, has their back!
"You are nobody and a few days later people respect you and that means so much" says Paul.
"I appreciate all the support. I'm feeling the love and I love you back" says Kree.
