Watch Cam’s TEDx Talk: “Life Can Be Tough. Music Can Help.” + Performance

Cam delivered a TEDx Talk—“Life Can Be Tough. Music Can Help.”—and performance on Jan. 21 in front of a live audience at the University of Nevada in Reno.

TEDx Talks were created in the spirit of TED Talks’ mission of supporting “ideas worth spreading” and they are planned and coordinated under a license granted by TED Talks. Initially, TEDx event coordination Dr. Bret Simmons reached out to Cam to perform at the conference, but after learning that Cam previously worked at psychology labs at both Stanford and Berkeley, he invited her to speak about the power music has on the human condition.

“It only lasted about 11 minutes . . . but I was more terrified than I’ve ever been in my life,” said Cam. “To share knowledge publicly means I had to first believe that I have knowledge worth sharing—and questioning myself is pretty much my superpower.”

During the conference, Cam also performed three songs—“Burning House,” “Runaway Train” and “Village”—from her debut album, Untamed. In addition, Cam shared the inspiration behind each song.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
