was ten years ago that Kate Williamson was living in Hawaii, studying full time. She had a full course load, but the life of a student offered a lot of downtime as well Evenings out, usually men going to a local bar Kate was a big country music fan, so she often hit up powers that only play the type of music she liked. The types of establishments where hearing Blake, Shelton or carry Underwood, wouldn't feel out of place case. Favorite bar was called the country bar in Pearl harbor. The country bark just pretty descriptive, pretty basic there. She had spent many a night there enjoying the music, and eventually she got to know the staff, including the DJ one night. He told Kate. You would love to have a backup teaching. Up until that point was unable to find anyone. That's why to be their every night. But Kate was up for it, so you could say she decided to add pitch to an idea. Kate, and this house DJ made a deal, should become the backup, dj and work for free for the next two months. Torrent
