If you haven't heard her name yet, you have probably been hiding under a rock but all country music fans got some great news last week. Melissa Forrette a very talented musician from here in Montana has decided to quit her day job and invest everything she has to further her career in music.

Melissa has spent 7 years building her name by working tons of shows and taking advantage of as much time on stage as possible. This past weekend I had the privilege of working with Melissa at the 10th annual Chicks 'n Chaps Rodeo Clinic and she keeps getting better every time I hear her perform.

Lots of people are asking why now. I think Melissa put it best when she made the announcement on Facebook last week.

We couldn't be more proud of Melissa and wish her nothing but the best as she continues her already successful music in Country music!
