Kylie Hinze thirteen year old rising country star is never short on smiles or words. Kylie Hinze (pronounced hen-zee) at the age of thirteen is already embracing her God given talents as a songwriter and performer. She is quickly rising to fame across the Southeast and is poised to become one of the newest stars of country music.
Writing since the age of eight, Kylie has adopted a unique style of expressing herself through her extraordinary lyrics. It is safe to say she has discovered a commercial platform to express what every thirteen year old is going through. What is even more incredible is that her message is now resonating to both young people and adults. From the stories of early relationships to the more serious topics, Kylie is captivating audiences across the country.
It is an honor to have a dear friend of mine Kylie Hinze or more well known as @kyliehinze on twitter in my blog doing this interview with me. Her true understanding of music is truly amazing. Behind the great voice is a great person who’s heart is gold helping people when in need. Kylie is one of those people who sing any style of songs. I recommend you follow her if you have not already.
1). How did you know that singing was your passion?
I’VE GROWN UP LISTENING TO MUSIC SO IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PART OF MY LIFE. MY MOM SAYS I HAVE BEEN SINGING SINCE I COULD TALK; I WROTE MY FIRST SONG WHEN I WAS EIGHT. I WAS OUTSIDE PLAYING HOP SCOTCH WITH MY BROTHER AND I HAD A TUNE STUCK IN MY HEAD. SO I WENT INSIDE, WROTE IT DOWN, THEN CAME BACK OUT TO PLAY! THAT WAS JUST THE BEGINNING … IN 6TH GRADE I PERFORMED ONE OF MY SONGS “LOST IN MY FUTURE” IN OUR SCHOOL TALENT SHOW, BECK IDOL. THAT WAS THE NIGHT I REALIZED THIS IS WHAT I WANTED TO DO!
2). What is the role model you wish to be with your career?
I LOVE IT WHEN I SEE THE CROWD SMILING WHILE I SING. I HOPE THAT I CAN TOUCH THEIR HEARTS WITH MY MUSIC AND MY MESSAGE! IT MAKES ME HAPPY TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO MY LYRICS AND THAT WE CAN ALL COME TOGETHER THROUGH MUSIC. I KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF NEGATIVE FORCES IN THE WORLD TODAY AND I WANT TO SEND A POSITIVE, HAPPY, FUN AND CLEAN IMAGE OUT TO MY FANS. GOD AND MY FAITH HAVE ALWAYS BEEN KEY TO ME AND MY SONGWRITING. I BELIEVE THAT HE HAS GIVEN ME A GIFT WORTH SHARING!
3). How do your parents support your passion?
MY PARENTS (AND MY BIG BROTHER) HAVE ALWAYS HAD MY BACK! THEY BELIEVE WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT I CAN DO ANYTHING AS LONG I WORK HARD, WHILE STILL HAVING FUN AND BEING TRUE TO MYSELF. MY MOM IS AN AMAZING “GIG GETTER” AND IS ALWAYS WILLING TO DRIVE ME WHEREVER NEEDED FOR THIS JOURNEY! I COULDN’T DO THIS WITHOUT MY BROTHER’S SUPPORT AND COMIC RELIEF – HE ALWAYS HAS ME LAUGHING! WHEN I WAS REALLY LITTLE, I WOULD SNEAK OUT OF MY BEDROOM WHILE I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ASLEEP AND WATCH CMT MUSIC VIDEOS IN MY DAD’S LAP! MY MOM NEVER KNEW THIS WAS HAPPENING … UNTIL YEARS LATER. 😉
4). What is the best advise you were given?
WELL THAT’S A TOUGH ONE, I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A LOT OF GREAT ADVISE! HERE’S MY TOP 2: ALWAYS BE YOURSELF AND DON’T CHANGE WHO YOU ARE FOR ANYBODY, NO MATTER WHAT! ALSO, TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF AND JUST HAVE FUN BECAUSE IF YOU ARE DOING WHAT YOU LOVE, IT WILL SHOW! LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WORRY.
5). What does it represent for you to sing on July the 2nd at this event?
WOW! I AM COMPLETELY HONORED TO BE A PART OF THIS SPECIAL EVENT! I MEAN SERIOUSLY, TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS MILITARY TRIBUTE AND SAY THANK YOU TO OUR TROOPS IS AMAZING! I WROTE MY NEW SONG “THEY STAND TALL” ON FATHER’S DAY AND WILL BE PERFORMING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT NIGHT. I HOPE THAT IT HELPS PEOPLE REMEMBER THAT FREEDOM COMES WITH A COST. I DEDICATE THIS SONG AND PERFORMANCE TO MY PAPA JIM, HE WAS A WORLD WAR II VETERAN WHO PASSED AWAY IN NOVEMBER.
