After rubbing shoulders with some country music A-listers and gaining some ground in the thriving music industry of Nashville, Tennessee, local aspiring country singer Beth Marie Anderson is back in Qualicum Beach, working on a plan that will see her make Nashville her permanent home.

The 24 year-old singer songwriter released her debut album Open Road in 2010 with 10 original tracks and since then hasn’t looked back.

Her first trip to the country music capital happened five years ago. The KSS grad ended up loving the city filled with songwriters and music producers and has worked hard every year saving up enough money to hang out in the city and learn the ropes.

Anderson has made a number of industry connections and just recently got back from a four-month-stint, writing songs and performing gigs throughout the city. Once again the trip exceeded Anderson’s expectations as she came back with some new songs under her belt, one that is currently available on iTunes.
