Cam Selected to Give TED Talk in 2017

Typically, the hosts on TED Talk have a rather interesting educational background. For example, some of the hosts have been leaders in the tech or healthcare fields. Entrepreneurs and business leaders are also often the focus of the show.

However, from time to time, the series also features presentations from artists and celebrities. Early next year, the show will be going country when Cam takes the stage to give a TED Talk.

The talk will take place at the University of Nevada early in 2017. At this time, Cam hasn’t given us the topic she will be covering, but she will also be performing that day. In a recent interview, she revealed that she is actually a really big fan of the show.

“I’ve been watching TED Talks for years. And, I’ve applied the shared ideas to my life countless times,” Cam told Sounds Like Nashville when asked about this appearance.

Past hosts have included magician David Blaine, author Elizabeth Gilbert and alt-rock artist Amanda Palmer. The series takes on a wide range of topics and helps drive the conversations around some of the most important issues, from facing your fears to climbing the corporate ladder.

As one of the most celebrated new female artists in country music, it’s obvious that Cam will have plenty to talk about when 2017 rolls around.
