Holly Perry fell in love with country music from an early age, begging her grandpa to play all the classics at only three years old. Her family has a longstanding joke that her first word was "Garth." She quickly made her way to Nashville during college, diving into the music business through internships and eventually taking a position with a major record label. She moved from Nashville to New Orleans in 2013 and began writing for AXS.com, where she interviewed artists like Kelsea Ballerini, Rachel Platten, Counting Crows and more. Holly was also the red carpet correspondent for AXS.com during the CMA Awards in 2014 and 2015. Holly has been an active member of the Recording Academy for the last several years and recently was chosen as a Grammy NEXT candidate for the 2016-2017 year, recognizing her as emerging leader in the music industry. Her passions outside of writing include live shows, animal rescue and traveling.
