I'm a Cam fan

With Cam and my sister Lilly in Tinley Park, Ill.
A few months ago I won tickets from the radio station to see Dierks Bentley in Chicago. I've been a Dierks fan for years, so I was ecstatic to go. He had a few openers listed online, but the one that caught my eye was Cam. I had heard her songs "Burning House" and "Mayday" on the radio, and I liked them both. So I decided to purchase the album to get concert-ready.

I had no idea what I was in for. 

Cam's album, "Untamed," is the whole package for female country lovers. Her songs touch on a variety of relatable topics: love, love lost, revenge and more. And while deep tracks like "Burning House" are powerhouses of the album, the album never loses steam because of fun tracks like "Country Ain't Never Been Pretty" sprinkled throughout.

My sister and I stuck around after the show and were fortunate enough to meet Cam. We've met a few upcoming country artists before, yet there was something very genuine about Cam. She took the time to speak with every person who waited in line, she signed autographs, took photos, and even embraced in hugs.

During her set, she made a funny, sarcastic comment about how male musicians don't seem to get enough love. As someone who tries to listen to country radio, (but usually gets frustrated after an hour of nothing but male voices,) I thought she was spot on.

I think Cam is the real deal in new country music, and I think her music has the ability to last. She may be the real, true, breath of fresh air that country music needs right now. I'm a Cam fan.
