C A N D Y  O' T E R R Y   &  J A C Y  D A W N  V A L E R A S

The email Jacy Dawn sent to Candy O went something like this: I used to listen to you on the radio when I was growing up, and I’d love to meet you and become a part of your Boston media and entertainment networking group. I’m a singer/songwriter living in Nashville.  Maybe we can meet up when I come home to Boston later this month? 


What began with a simple email introduction in 2019 is now a thriving, creative collaboration that has included recording the friendship duet If I Should Lose My Way to benefit cancer research and co-writing and the song Nelson’s Garden for an upcoming children’s book.  Along the way, Candy realized how much her two podcasts could benefit from working with Platinum Circle Media, Jacy’s social media marketing company and before you know it, they hatched a plan to create Country Music Success Stories. Their podcast series brings together Candy’s award-winning career as a broadcaster and master interviewer with Jacy’s singer/songwriter career and highly successful You Tube channel called Music City Mentor.  At the heart of this collaboration is a friendship they both treasure. They love the path they are on and hope you’ll come along with them as they sit down with country music icons who share how they got to where they are today.  For the next generation of country music stars, Country Music Success Stories is required listening.
