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.
