Alanna Conaway’s love for music began at an early age, but it wasn’t until her mother began freelancing for country music magazines that she was thrown in the midst of her future career.

At 29, she has established herself as a well-respected writer in the field of music entertainment and has built strong friendships along the way. Conaway currently resides in Nashville, Tenn. where she freelances full-time for Taste of Country, PopCrush, Ultimate Classic Rock, LoudWire, Guy Speed, Country Weekly and Full Access Magazine.
