It's been a busy year for Taylor Heard since she won last year's John Ritter Tribute Showcase" in Carthage. As the winner of the Showcase, she's represented the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame throughout the country.
It was just what she needed to put her career in high gear. Touring, the release of her album "Southland", and the new songs she's writing with some of Nashville's top song writers, Taylor is seeing her longtime dreams coming true.
