“Candy and I had some real girl talk on the Country Music Success Stories Podcast,” expressed Naomi Judd. “We covered a lot of ground during our conversation and I’m thrilled to be part of the first episode.” 

“Country Music Success Stories bring our talents together around the music, and what it takes to make your dreams come true,” shared Music City Mentor, Jacy Dawn Valeras. “The goal of this podcast is to welcome listeners into the conversation and give them a seat at a table with a view that points toward success.”

“No one comes into our lives by accident, says Candy O’Terry. It’s only been 18 months since Jacy Dawn Valeras and I met and we quickly realized how much we have in common. Whether through radio, live performance, industry networking or songwriting, we’ve both been fortunate to be mentored by pros who are now our friends.”

After spending a week together in Nashville with the idea of doing a four 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.”

Future guests will include Kelly Lang, Jeannie Seely, Karen Staley, Crystal Gayle along with many others including surprise guests along the way.
