BellaOnline’s Shelia M. Goss caught up with Hope Partlow for a Q&A and asked the 17-year-old how has her life changed since her musical success. “A lot,” Partlow responded. “I come from one hundred acres in Tennessee, now I live on a tour bus.

My family is back in Tennessee and I normally see them on the holidays or when I get to go home for a few days.” Check out a complete transcript here.
