Lindsey Sipe: Senior Correspondent / Nashville – As a South Carolina girl growing up on the likes of Reba and Garth (and every other 90s country icon), Lindsey always had a fascination with country music traditions and the city of Nashville. And in 2014, after getting her feet wet in the local Carolina music industry for a few years, Lindsey decided it was time to see what “chasing the dream” was all about. And even though she didn’t know many Nashvillians, she packed up her car anyway with all that could fit and never looked back in the rearview mirror. Almost four years later, she is building the life she has always dreamed of with The Country Note. As the Nashville correspondent and co-owner of CN, she has covered multiple events and interviewed some of today’s biggest artists and tomorrow’s rising stars. When she’s not writing or reporting on a show, you can find Lindsey enjoying photography, warm weather, and fruity cocktails on a front porch swing somewhere. Lindsey is so thankful for her incredible Country Note team and she is so ready to take it to the next level as a long lasting and viable publication for the fans.
