Cam Reflects on Her Biggest Career Moments (So Far)
Cam has experienced a lot of career highs already in her still-young career. In the past few months alone, the California native has released her debut EP, Welcome to Cam Country, earned her first Top 15 single with "Burning House" and made her debut performance on the Grand Ole Opry -- and that's just the tip of the iceberg. For the rising star, the last few months have been one big, happy blur.
"[I got to open] for Loretta Lynn," Cam tells The Boot. "She’s insane. I got to perform onstage one time with the two gals from Heart, Jason Mraz, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill. Being around people that you look up to while you’re playing music, that’s incredible."
The singer has also enjoyed seeing that people all over the country know the words to "Burning House."
"In the last few weeks, now when I’m singing my song, I can stop singing and people will sing it back to me," she shares. "I know that sounds like something that maybe happens all the time to important people, but that’s the first time it’s happened to me. I get goosebumps. Everyone’s face, they’re wearing the feeling they have when they hear the song. It’s like we’re having this moment together."
Cam also recently performed a cover of the Dixie Chicks‘ “Cowboy, Take Me Away" with Lady Antebellum at the Allegan County Fair in Michigan. On social media, she gushed that she was "feeling like a kid whose dreams just came true" after the performance.
In addition to putting the finishing touches on her first full-length album, Cam is also working on wedding details with her fiance, Adam Weaver.
